Update Old Content!

How to boost an old article?

It’s important to update old content on your site. It gives them another chance to be found by SEO.  How to update old content? We will talk about this below in this post.

I don’t know about you but when I reread my old content I am either ashamed or want to laugh! When I started of course I didn’t know anything about it.

I didn’t pay more attention to the quality of my photos, the layout of my articles, and even less to SEO. I was a bit lost with all the training and keywords, meta title, and more.

I still found that the content was there and instead of leaving it like that or removing the old content.  Non, give it a second chance at life. They might interest people who read me today but didn’t know me at the time. So update Old Content.

This is why it is better to update Old Content and not deleting it!

ADD A PINTEREST-FRIENDLY IMAGE

You might not know it but Pinterest, when used well, can be a huge source of traffic. Update your old posts by adding an image in Pinterest format – feel free to use Canva to create it – on which you can write the article title.

  1. I’m glad I found this article as updating old content is something I’d planned to do a while back, but this has prompted me. I think writing improves naturally as you write more and more. Looking back my old posts from two years ago I can certainly see room for improvement. This included introductions and meta descriptions. Also, some Amazon links are of date, so if like me you use Amazon, it could mean updating reviews. I’ve also been creating pins for each post for a while now and it definitely brings traffic. This is something else I need to add in older posts as I update them. Thanks for sharing:)

    • Hi Kathy, glad that I help with this article. A website needs to be taking care of. Old article means when we begin and I know when I began I didn’t have really good skills to write so I agree it needs some improvement.
      Thank you for stopping by
