Hi,

Google is putting the date of my pages before the description tag in the search results, although my website is not a blog, but a classifieds ads site.

What can I do so google will not put the date of the page before the description. Because in my case, the date will have a negative effect in the CTR.

Google has been increasing their use of dating the listings in the serps. I don't know of a way to turn it off.

I know of people that "optimize" the dating to make it fresher which can significantly boost CTR.

What do you mean with "I know of people that "optimize" the dating to make it fresher which can significantly boost CTR. "?

Its a tactic that can boost CTR but also can risks your Google ranking.
