I would like to ask you bloggers, what happen with your olds posts? Old that I mean here are posts that have been leave down far at the bottom of your archives.
I start thinking about this yesterday when I glance through my own posts in my archives and thought what will happen with all of my old posts. Do people read them? Do I need to delete all of these old posts to clear my spaces? (sure I will not delete them lol…) Should I republish these posts? Many questions came into my head yesterday.
If so, what we can do?
Just delete them and get rid them off. Just kidding. :d I’m sure there is no one want to delete their entries right? He3. Ok. There are many ways that we can do. For those who use WordPress, you should smile because there are many plugins that we can use to make these old posts reusable. There are two plugins that I use on my site:
Related Posts Plugin
This plugin will display posts that are related with your entry. As you can see below of this post, there are 5 related posts which are related with this post. It is not hard to setup this plugin. And to select related posts are all automatically done by this plugin.
Ok. Next plugin that useful is Random Post. Random post will display random post on your website. I have put this plugin below my site header. See above. This plugin is very useful for your old posts. Try it! 😉
Manual Link back
Beside than using WordPress plugins, you also can manually link to your old posts. If you think that your entry is related with your old posts, just link back the posts in your entry. When readers read your entries, they will attract to click the link and read your old posts.
That’s all from me. Try them and don’t let your old posts crying because they are “old”. 😉
