    Hey Ankit,
    Great tips to bring life in a new post. These ideas are great. But I want to add one more extra thing in it.
    You can also re-share your old content on all social media platforms once or twice in a week. By doing this you can attract new users, more social shares and more comments.
    It’s great and works best for me .

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      You are right, Nikhil.

      I mentioned this point in the article itself. Social sharing is one of the best way to keep attracting new traffic to your blog.

      But the thing is you must share useful content with your followers. It’ll not only increase the traffic but also the trustworthiness of a blog.

      Thanks for your comment!

    Well, now that’s actually called a “Pillar article”. Many bloggers, including me, make mistake by not updating the old-contents that had been published once. However you’ve distinguished and have written awesome points.

    Editing the titles of the old-content is quite a good idea in order to rip up maximum benefit from Google and rank higher. Pinning is too a great idea, but the most wanted point I liked is – Tweet Old Plugin, ya, I was actually not aware of it. I’d surely give it a try.

    Thanks for the great contribution, Ankit Singla. Have a great weekend ahead.

    Hi Ankit, Great post.
    Interlinking is what I like the most. I often use my own blog search engine to find interlinking opportunities on my own blog.

    But I have to disagree with the very first point. Google often takes the change in title of the blog post seriously. Addition or deletion of only one or two words seems normal in the eyes of Google.

  5. Shubham Khatwani says:

  7. Hi, Ankit! 🙂

    These ideas of yours are, I think, quite similar to repurposing content. Repurposing content is a process in which you edit and re-write your old existing content, and make it better and new. This process is a good technique to use when you’re running out of idea to write new blog posts.

    Well, I must say that these tips that you’ve shared above are all wise and practical.

    Linking your old posts to new one is a great idea as for me. With this, you can build internal links, which is good to make your SEO stronger. While sharing your old content on different social networking site is a good strategy for you to gain some benefits of blogging.

    Thanks for the post! This article is indeed valuable and helpful. 🙂

    Best,

  8. While I agree with the 10 clever ways to keep old blog posts alive, it is still important we don’t forget to refrain from rehashing or duplicating ideas. The best steps I take to make my old posts come alive is re-purposing them into other formats.

  37. Hi Ankit,

    Thanks for sharing these amazing tips/tricks. Awesome indeed. I will definitely use them going forward.

    I have a question though, maybe you can help in your free time. recently I have developed pages on my blog, the reason for all this is to add old/new posts to pages. So far managed to attach one single post. But by the time I want to add the second, its either I have double pages of the same name on blog view or if I want to exclude the other page, this will mean that I have to delete the other page so I remain with the actual one. Please help with steps to get this done.
    Much appreciated for your time and help!

    By the way, I requested a migration via Hostgator and its taking ages to migrate blogger to WordPress. any tips on this? I have already paid them though.
