Is it better to have the blog page URL by date or category?
Using the category in your blog title is far better than using the date, and it makes for neater URL strings, too. The date won’t help you with a search term, but it will show up in the Google search results if you display dates on your blog in the correct way for Google to index them. /category/blog-title is far better than /2019-02-13/blog-title. That said, we prefer neat and tidy URL strings with good category tags on the blog page instead.
