In one of my last articles, I explained to you how important is to revive an old blog post to get more traffic to your website. First of all, you need to update and rewrite your old posts. Then you have to share them on your social networks profiles. Why? Because every day you get new readers and followers and they didn’t read what you wrote in past. Fix dates, information and SEO elements, then propose the posts again.
Now I want to give you advice on how you can revive an old blog post. You can install a plugin that helps you automatically to share the articles. It easy and it works without any need of your presence on the blog. I installed it not much time ago, but I saw the first results. What does this plugin offer? Let me give you the name first: Revive Old Posts. It is an easy name and it gives clearly the idea. It has a task: post automatically to social media.
