Google blog post snippets may start with the date in the searcher’s language, however many characters that might require. 138 characters of the Description are then often added to complete the snippet.

I had surmised this but a commenter on one of the blogs from Germany had spotted the same thing.

Bummer. I didn’t think that 150 was enough to begin with.

I see it too now. I don’t think it’s effecting anything if you use the All in one SEO plug-in for wordpress though? at least from what I see on my blog, the pages I’ve actually used the all in one SEO plug-in on, it doesn’t show any date.

I don’t find that is the answer, Mike.  I use the same plug-in and gradually more and more of the blog posts are being switched to date first followed by a reduced length snippet.
