20 Days Ago,I Was Searching Something Like "My Blog Disappeared From Searches",I Came To An Article By Harsh Agarwal.The Conclusion Of That Article Was "If We Have Lots Of Posts/Articles On Our Blog/Website,We May Be Penalised By Google Panda Due To Older Article Publication Dates,Which Reduces CTR".This Means That If Your Blog Or Website Is 2 Years Old,Then The First Published Article Will Be Having Date & Time Stamp Of 2 Years Before.And If Someone Who Was Searching For Keywords Embedded In That Article,Than He/She Will Click Your Competitor's Article(If Your Competitor Article Is Having Date Lower Then Yours),And This Will Reduce Your Blog/Website SEO Click Through Rate Aka CTR.
