Dear corporate webmasters,

You know how you all decided to remove the article timestamp from your corporate blogs, as a way of maintaining traffic to old articles you do not have time to keep updating? It might work.

But your website is now relegated to the “yah, maybe, a long time ago” cob-web class of resource.

No one accepts that kind of an article as an authority. It is really good evidence of out-of-date bad advice. It is now my number one question when someone says “But so-and-so says such-and-such.” “Yah? what’s the date on that article?” “Doesn’t say.” <click trash>

But I remember companies which keep spreading undated crap, and avoid them like influenza.
