New Posts from Old Posts
I finally decided to start sifting through my older posts and found that some of them were actually not that bad, but they had not really been enjoyed by anyone much, but how do I promote these older gems in my archive? For the longest time I kept hoping that promoting these old chestnuts on my Twitter feed might promote more interest, but it never really happened (that I can see). I have also tried to create "Best of:" posts where I include the old post and a link back to the old post, but that seemed redundant (and might actually contravene Google's rules about duplicate content). I finally tripped over another use of the Redirection Wordpress Plug In and that is to use it for its actual design and have it point old posts to new posts. Given I have an archive of over 2000 posts, I now have plenty of "content" I can pull from. Methodology is quite simple: Find an old post that I like (that has few or no comments), and note the URL it currently has in the system Go to the "Publish"
