Remove date from blogger post url

How do you remove the blog date/numbers from the URL of blogger posts? I have been looking for an answer to this question but it seems there is no answer which simply means that we have to live with it. However there is a few things that can be done. The first one is to use a page for your blog. For example if you see about me page, you will see that there is no date in the URL but then it will not appear in your RSS feed. If you are OK with that or you don't have a lot of subscribers then you can simply create a page. Remember you still have to get it out as it wont appear on the homepage.

Can you see the numbers at the start of the post. 
There used to be a way to remove the date/numbers from the posts but it has been removed and is no longer possible to switch it off. It would have been nice to remove these dates from the URL as it gives it freshness in the eyes of the reader. But to be honest, it does not really matter as far as SEO is concerned. Most people do not look at the URL when they are reading a website. You will notice that there are no dates at the top or at the bottom of this blog post. The least you can do is just switch it off at under "Layout" and "Post Page Options".

The second thing you could do is move your blog to a platform like WordPress. Here's how to create a website using WordPress. Moving from Blogger to WordPress is easy (not the other way round).

So you just have to live with the fact that you can't remove the date/numbers from the blogger post URL?

  1. This is really bad to get s trucked on a limitation and find there's no way out. I also was struggling to remove publish date or remove the post Info in WordPress blog with Genesis. After little googling, found one command to add in functions.php file and it did it!
