    I don't understand why we are encouraged to write evergreen Hubs yet when I search I see in shaded notation written 7 months ago, 2 months ago - is that just for Hubbers or for our readers too?

      Evergreen just means that the hub will be as useful and as true years from now as it is today. Articles we google frequently have dates they were written attached to them someplace. It's not uncommon.

      Stuff that doesn't make good evergreen content, for example, would be statistical pieces since stats change frequently. Believe me; I know...LOL. I've written statistical copy for the web before, and I always had to look at the dates on the stats I was using to make sure they were the most recent.
