Anecdotally speaking, some of my most popular posts show the date, but have turned out to be evergreen content, a term I wasn't familiar with before following you. It's hard to know if they would have more hits or less based on the date. Written in 2012, another blogger recently shared the post, doubling my traffic that day, and last week it was picked up by another site, and quadrupled the views. It was fun to see it all unfold.
Get the facts about whether to display dates, how it affects your SEO, and tips for how to add or remove dates.

Wow, +Alys Milner. Doesn't sound like dates on your posts are hurting you at all! But, there's only one way to find out. Take a snapshot of organic clicks vs. referral clicks, then remove the dates and check those stats again.

First off, I'm really sorry to hear that anyone, anywhere, would blame you or hold you responsible for the behavior of a hosting site. It's part of the bigger culture, in my opinion anyway, of blaming someone else whenever something goes wrong. I no longer recommend vendors for my business either. I simply suggest. It's a slippery slope, isn't it.  

I know that I don't give my site the full attention it deserves, nor is my business big enough to ever contemplate some of the other, non-self hosting you refer to above.

I'm so glad you are here, MaAnn and hope your business continues to thrive and grow.  
Hosting is one of the most critical elements of site success. And yet, it’s the one thing site owners tend to neglect researching and paying a little more for good service. Uptime is far from all there is to good hosting. It’s always been difficult to find a host that suits all of my client’s needs, has superior support, and remains rock steady in the service they provide. But now, it’s becoming so difficult, that I’ve decided to stop publicly en...

Two summers ago I planted Birdhouse Gourds from seed. Infatuated with the idea of carving my own birdhouses, I imagined a garden filled with nesting birds. A gardener can dream, can’t she? Most of the gourds grew to about three inches, then dropped off…
