Having the date in the URL structure for blog posts?
What do you guys think about having the date in the URL structure of blog posts?
I personally think its way better for SEO to have a clean URL. Meaning I'll remove the date part from the slug. Result: .com/blog/some-example-keyword/
I've seen lots of important companies that have blog posts URLs with the date in it. Are these companies unaware of SEO best practices? Or leave the default Wordpress structure can actually be somehow relevant?
Also, as a side not, all blogspot blog posts have also the date in the URL structure. But unlike Wordpress, you can't remove it.
