    help how do I move the date from the blog--within the CSS customization right? Thanks

    The blog I need help with is revolutionarymarketingideas.com.

  2. Each theme is individually designed. Some display dates on posts and some do not. Dates are embedded into every post URL we publish and cannot be removed. Dates that appear on the blog can be.

    Important note: CSS editing is theme dependent. In some themes, dates, authors, categories and/or tags, “leave a comment” link cannot be hidden independently, as they are in the same selector, which means if you hide one, then you hide them all.

  3. I searched for you. See here to hide the date on individual posts on the Chateau theme http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/chateau-theme-date-removal?replies=6#post-865569

    one more silly question what about twitter handles such as @beavercreek. Thanks so much

    Any thoughts on how to get more traffic for our blog would be so appreciated. Love wordpress and have been blogging for a year now!
    thanks and have a great day!

  9. Okay so here's the deal. Over the course of the last couple of years bloggers and other webmasters thought they could end run Google and game the SERPs (search engine page results) successfully - ha!

    They thought if they removed all dates from their posts their content would be considered "evergreen" and would hold the positioning they had in the SERPs. Those who had WordPress.org installs installed plugins to remove the dates from the whole blog and the URLs - as if!

    From then until now there are those advising others do this and if they have WordPress.org blog they can but if they have WordPress.com blogs they can't. Why? Because there is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we bloggers cannot install any plugins.

    Are we crying the blues here at WordPress.com? heck no! Our blogs on .wordpress.com sub-doimans have better SEO than those with all the SEO plugins, date removal plugins, do -follow comment links and employ gaming tactics do.

    How do I know that? Let's call, it experimentation that some SEO buddies tried ie. running two identical content blogs one with the silly sneak bells & whistles on a WordPress.org install on its own domain and one on a free hosted WordPress.com blog on a .wordpress.com sub-domain.

    Now that I have said this don't be surprised if a flock of WordPress.org lurkers zip in and try to argue the point. I don't argue. My sources are solid. I know what I know and I shared what I know.

  10. Once again @twiiter handles don't belong in Categories/Tags. Don't make the search spiders choke by playing cute. They are programmed to scorn all cuteness.

    Reciprocity is alive and well in the blogosphere. Social networking is strictly give to get. It takes months of posting unique content frequently to attract viewers who will actually submit comments. The best way to get comments on your own posts is to leave meaningful comments on blogs with similar content to what's in your own blog. Set a goal of commenting on "X" number of blogs weekly and carry through.
