    In wordpress it is possible to schedule a post in the past. For example I can write a post now and schedule it on 08/08/2013. Google actually shows that date in the SERPs later even if the post was crawled and indexed last week.

    As we all know age of an article / link plays a huge role. So by scheduling posts in the past we can 'fake' the age of an article.

    Does this help to make a post / link older for google? Or do they use the date when it was first crawled when they consider the age of an article?

    Depends upon your subject matter but I think they would give prefer to aged backlinks instead of aged posts.

    Probably wouldn't provide too much benefit for Google, but I could see it being used to trick your actual users to think your bew website is older than it is

    So what happens to articles that don't have a date shown up anywhere? It can't possibly work with algo, it could only fool a human.

    LOL
    I don't think so that google loves old content. When ever I search something, either it was posted a few hours ago or a few weeks ago. I rearly see any post that is from 2013 on #1.
    So no fun to do that!

    This will just hurt you. You could have an older date show up in the search results, but that's going to harm your CTR. If I see an older article vs a newer one, I click the newer one.

    For ranking, no, that won't help. Indirectly, your CTR falling would actually hurt your rank anyway, so I suppose indirectly your rank drops.

    I would rather update all post dates frequently. You will get better CTR from search results when you have up-to-date posts showing on google search.

    Cheers

    Oh, I see. Well, if the intention is to try to send a signal that "I wrote this first," no that won't work.

    OP , i thought about this originally, felt like some out of box method to fake high publishing rate of articles and then i didn't gave it a go.
    My intention was spamming and i couldn't find a way to automate article posting so i left that.

    Google gives age to the link from the first time it index it.

    Not the date of the article.
