I am from Europe. I am confused about dates in USA. I have seen different ways to show the date in USA:
- Rss feed: Thu, 15 August 2017
- Schema and Sitemap: 2017-08-15
- Wikipedia: August 15, 2017 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Date_and_time_notation_in_the_United_States
I have a blog. The main audience of my English version of the blog is in USA, but I do not want to alienate the rest of the English speakers. How should I show the date of the post? I mean, how would someone from the street easy understand the date?
Schema and Google make it clear how to give them the date, I have no doubts about that. My question is how to show the date to the user. For instance:
<div itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-08-15">Thu, 15 August 2017</div>
<div itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-08-15">August 15, 2017</div>
