If you use wordpress. You can use a simple WP plugin called “Date Exclusion SEO”. The best thing about this plugin is; it gives few option, which will be very helpful. Though it’s an outdated plugin, but I tried with WordPress 4.1+ for one of my client sites, and it worked without any issue.

First of all I would like to ask you are you talking about Blogs??
If yes, then in the SEO tools option in your CMS you will get an option to exclude Date, click that, this will stop showing date in your search results.

Whenever you visit any site and again that site appear in the search results then you get the this message 1 day ago or 3 days ago.. This is just a general message that tells you that you have visited this site 3 days ago.

Method 1: Using JavaScript.
For this we have to modify your theme file especially these three files need to be updated index.php for the homepage, single.php for the single post, archive.php for archives.
Method 2: Using Yoast SEO Plugin:
Download Yoast SEO plugin from wordpress repository.
Go to your WordPress Dashboard -> SEO -> Titles & Metas -> Post Types.
Method 3: By Removing Date Manually or Using Theme Settings

Tips to remove your data from search engine

Method 1 – Through theme options

Check your WordPress theme settings. Many themes offer an option what meta info to shows and hide. I use Schema – Fastest SEO Theme Available for WordPress. Navigate to Appearance>Theme Options>Single Posts>Disable Post Date. This will remove all post dates.

 
Method 2 – Using a WordPress Plugin

Plugin 1 – WP Meta and Date Remover

This WordPress plugin gives you the option to remove all meta data including the date. Simply install the plugin and go to settings.

Plugin 2 – WP Author, Date and Meta Remover

It is a very simple to use WordPress plugin. Simply install the plugin and activate. You can manage what information to remove through the Plugin Settings.

 
Method 3 – Using a custom PHP code

This is one of the easiest ways to hide post date from Google Search Results. I will also explain how you can hide dates from posts older than specific amount of days. Add the following code to your WordPress single.php file.

Step 1 – Lets start with the date function:

1 <?php the_date(); ?>


Step 2 – Now lets add a conditional statement which only shows the date if the post is less than 180 days old:

1  <?php if(strtotime( get_the_date() ) > strtotime( "180 days ago" )) {
2        the_date();
3  } ?>


Step 3 – Finally, lets add another conditional statement for posts less than 180 days old OR add-date custom field exists, which will then show the date:


1  <?php if((get_post_meta($post->ID, 'add-date', true)) || strtotime( get_the_date() ) > strtotime( "180 days ago" )) {
2        the_date();
3  } ?>


This should do the trick. Of course, you can choose the number of days as you prefer. Simply replace 180 with your preferred number of days.

the Yoast SEO dates are disabled.
The Yoast SEO date setting applies to the snippet preview you see on your post in the Yoast SEO meta box. This does not impact whether or not Google shows a date but, instead, allows you to adjust the snippet preview to match how Google handles your site.

It depends upon if you want to Remove Temporarily or Permanently!

Go to the Webmaster Tool - Remove URL - Copy/Paste the URL to be removed
Within 24-28 Hrs. your URL will be removed from Google

if you want it to be removed permanently, make sure its taken off from your server end too.

Else, Google will reindex it again.

Hope this helps  ::)
