How to Change Time to Date in Blogger Custom Template?

By | March 24, 2014
blogger time to is a platform built in XML. While you can also use CSS, HTML and JavaScript in it massively. The blogger default templates are easy to navigate and to customize. But the problems and issues arise mostly in custom templates which are designed by third party designers.
The issue I’m addressing today is date below the post titles. In most of the custom templates you see instead of appropriate date only time appears. This is because the timestamp function is used in Blogger XML dynamic coding. Instead of only showing timing it should be replaced with date, because date is more appropriate than only time. 
From SEO and Google eyes, now date is necessary for every page existing on the web. Because sometimes Google’s crawler doesn’t know about the exact date of the content and in SERP it shows pages from 2005 and 2006 while the searchers need latest 2014’s information. So therefore date should be added to each page.
