How To Remove Time Stamp From Blogger

Removing Time Stamp from posts can be of some advantage to bloggers. There are few posts in your blog that can be included in the category of  evergreen posts - those that will never lose their worth with time. Bloggers don't want a Time Stamp(indicating when the article was posted), that appears in SERP(search engine result page), to repel any user from visiting their page. So removing the time stamp from Blogger posts can be a good move to optimize your blog for search results.

To get more tips on blog optimization, please read:

Time Stamp can be easily removed by these two methods:

Method 1
1. Open the Layout settings of your Blogger page.
2. Click on the Edit option and uncheck the Time Stamp option from "Post Page Options".

Method 2
Sometimes the default method(1) to remove Time Stamp from Blogger Posts will not work if you are using a custom template, in that case you can use this method.
1. Open Template Settings of your Blogger Page.
2. Click on Edit HTML and  then click on Expand Widget Template.
3. Now search for this code in your template and remove it.
<b:if cond='data:top.showTimestamp'>
<b:if cond='data:post.url'>
4. Now you'd want to remove the respective CSS code of Time Stamp, so search for this code in your template:

and remove the entire code that follows it within its Parentheses. The code would look something like this:
.post-timestamp { background: url("#") no-repeat scroll 0 5px transparent; float: left; padding: 2px 0px 0 30px; }
