  • Hello,
    I switched from Yoast to Rank math, and I’m so happy with that decision. But I couldn’t find how to remove Categories and Pages dates from google and other search results, in yoast I had that option, but I couldn’t find it in Rank Math.
    Thank you!

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I don’t believe this is controlled by the SEO plugin. Even with Yoast, here is a quote from them :

    The Yoast SEO date setting applies to the snippet preview you see on your post in the Yoast SEO meta box. This does not impact whether or not Google shows a date but, instead, allows you to adjust the snippet preview to match how Google handles your site.

    I’ll however consult the dev team and see if/how this can be done.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Ah I see.
    I hope you’ll find a way to help me remove the dates.
    Thanks again!

    Hi,

    You have to remove all instances of the date from your theme files. That is usually done in the single.php file or page.php file.

    An SEO plugin cannot do that so you must talk to your theme provider for further assistance with the removal of dates from your content.

    Once the date is removed from your content, Google will automatically remove it from their SERPs.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    Ok, I’ll do that. Thank you so much for your help!
