Keep Your Blog Posts Archives Alive

How to Keep Your Blog Archives Alive:

Do you have blog posts that are Left 4 Dead?  If you have written many blog articles you will want to keep them from being ignored by your readers.  Most visitors to your blog will read the first one or maybe two blog posts on your home page.  Don't let all of those old blog posts that you slaved over get lost in the vast wasteland of old blog posts.

There are several ways to keep your old blog posts featured or highlighted so that new blog visitors will read these gems.

  • Add a popular blog posts widget on your sidebar and feature some posts you believe your readers should read.

  • Make your old posts into a series and link them all together.
  • Use your Twitter account or Facebook page to add some of your old blog post links.

  • Put links in your new posts to an old post that explains the topic further. 

  • You can put up a new blog post just listing your favorite old posts.  Possibly a top 10 favorite blog posts list.

  • Interlink old posts to one another.

  • Post the top three posts at the end of each month.

  • Have a related posts plug-in at the bottom of each post.

You can always find a new way to get those old blog posts some more love.  Try posting a follow up post about how the blog post topic worked or didn't work or is no useful to you.  Think about it for a little bit, maybe get creative, and you can breathe new life into your old blog posts.
