His purpose of the visit is read the latest data regarding the issue. But if you start a blog a few months ago. Then you can grip on it and update regularly. But when you have an old blog and have more than 1000 articles.
Then what you will do? Visitors will come to your site but they will read the post publish in 2008 and the visitor is reading in 2015. Then he/ she will send you an email to update the post. Because this is not updated. So the better answer is that just remove the published date and show the last updated date. It will rank your website and also show the date in Google SERP.
In fact, you are not writing a book where people will not show the updated date. You have created a blog where people first see the last update date and after it shows the interest. So the issue is published date.
