Tonight I will make a silent and personal petition to WordPress to remove all permalinks options except the extended date one [/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/]. I use Google everyday, tens of times, to find stuff I need or I don’t need. Sometimes I look for news or updated information on some particular subject. What if I find an article on some blog with the URL address like http://www.blogdomain.com/article/? Wouldn’t it be helpful if the address would have been http://www.blogdomain.com/2005/01/15/article/?
Maybe there is another possibility. Google might add a “indexed on 15.01.2005” feature. So I can skip those results. Or add an advanced search option like a date range, something like last 30 days, last 6 months, and so on.
I’m mad at these features lacking from Google. I hope WordPress will add the extended date permalink structure as the default structure. I know that some Apache servers might lack the mod_rewrite function for URLs, but let’s work together and improve the search algorythm and unify the WordPress blogs’ structure.
Thank you for listening to my petition.
