Date Your Articles

URLs in SEO were different two years ago than they are now. I am forced to disregard this article because there is no date and as far as I know it's 5 years old, so I go back to my search engine and look for other results.
Ah - thats bad for the article site too. The back button of death.
Please, oh please oh please, date your stuff.

What were/are these people thinking?
If you find AdSense on the page, you know what's up, but legitimate articles should be dated.

I want to point out, however, that dating a distributed article is uncommon...few (if any) of the distribution services date the article, so you're fighting against an industry issue.
Catz, I hope you are not implying that an article page with AdSense on it is bogus/not legit?! While - just like any other marketing method - there are those that HUGELY abuse the system, many legitimate information sites use Adsense/Yahoo Publishers/paid advertisements to support the Website.

As has been mentioned here in a few recent posts, articles written simply for the AdSense revenue a page can attain, rather than offering something unique, of value to the visitor abound. The problem is, there are so many abusing the system, after a while you come not to trust them.
Because of those that HUGELY abuse the system, many legitimate information sites who use AdSense (in particular) to support the web site, as you mentioned, are going to pay the price. If their links lead to something useful, rather than to another page filled with more AdSense links, they are the exception.
If a trusted site has AdSense ads on it, that is another story and you expect to actually find what the link advertises if you choose to click the link.
As for having AdSense on your Wedding Photo page...every newly married couple could use a little something to get them off on the right foot...may you get many, many clicks!

lol, I shouldn't get many (or any) clicks from that page. The ads there are integrated into the overall site navigation system and would be a minor pita to remove ... folks are going to the page to look at pictures (I hope), not looking for whatever's showing in the ads.
When I was putting the page up, I noticed ads for deposition-takers...hope that's not an omen. After almost 22 years, I think we're pretty much committed for life!
