I noticed on a few recent projects the Date is displaying in the Meta Description for all Custom Post Types and Taxonomies in WordPress. I was always under the impression the Date would usually show for 'Posts', which has always made sense. Then for Pages and Taxonomies - which would normally be evergreen content in most scenarios NO date would appear when seeing the snippet on a SERP.
I use the Genesis Framework and Yoast SEO for most projects and have looked into seeing if the date showing in the meta description is related to the Parent Theme or Plugin and it doesn't seem to be.
Yoast say the date is produced naturally by Wordpress.
I'm slightly confused though as I have never had this issue until recently, I was interested in seeing if anyone else has noticed this and if there is a solution to removing the date from all CPTs and Taxonomies?
