4 options to consider for what to do with old posts!

Some ideas for sharing old posts

  1. Go to your profile: more: posts and navigate to the post you want to share. Open the post and share it.
  2. If you wish to go back to that post and don’t want to edit the post go to the URL (located in the address bar at the top of the page.) Select the entire link and copy it. I usually paste it into notepad for later use.
  3. Go to search, and if you know the exact title of the post, you can find it that way as well.
  4. Copy the URL and paste that into your new posts

When you look at old posts, there are a couple of things to consider. The posts that are already doing well in terms of views from 2 or 3 years ago are the ones to edit. High view low comment posts do well when edited and made new! They also, by the way, do well if share don social media. A high view post is normally anything with more than 300 views. Why 300 views? Well, over the last few years, we’ve had 200 active authors. (Give or take a few) so 300 means your post has gotten some external views. If it is over 300 views and virtually no comments (less than say ten total comments), then you have a Gem that is most likely highly external view friendly.

I have played with two options today and have in the past few weeks also done a 3rd option. Option 1 is my wander project today, linking to an older wander project. The original post was the low view and low comment. But I have only shared it on Social Media and embedded it in the post I shared today.

Option two is a low view low comment post from 3 years ago. I edited that post and shared it today.

Option 3 is editing an old high view low comment post.

Option 4 is editing a high view, high comment post.

Each of the options has an impact.  My primary interest is in driving external views. I will share the data collected in a few days!
