Blogging has been a passion of mine for years now. However, there are times when I run out of fresh ideas and even keep thinking about not being the only one to offer my readers.
This is when I decide to add some life to my existing content on the site . At the same time, it helps me in bringing in pictures of already posted content, as everyone knows, apart from fresh posts on the blog set the old side. So we can say that updating old content kills two birds with one stone.
I like to do this because after all I put the time and effort into my existing posts which are still relevant readers and potential audiences of my blog. Here are 10 simple and important ways to help drive new readers to your old posts:
1. Edit the title to make it more SEO friendly
Go through the titles of your old Latest Mailing Database posts and try changing them to make them more engaging based on trending topics and ideas. Changing the title certainly won't mess up your site, as it won't change the permalinks of your posts for SEO. Only the display title will change, which will be quickly picked up by Google for new information.
2. Create an image and pin it to Pinterest
Pinterest is a great way for bloggers to generate traffic on their blog. It often happens that we tend to only foot one of multiple images from one post on our website. Well, choose images that haven't started pinning and their pins to re-drive new traffic.
Pinterest ( if used properly ) can help your blog become more than super successful.More, Pinterest also blesses its users with lots of free targeted traffic.

3. Link old posts to new ones
We all know that the key to internal link building lies in strong SEO and being user friendly at the same time too. So, link your old tips or write-ups related to your new post with similar ideas on the site.
4. Create Google Hangouts Google Hangouts is a well-known way to not only share knowledge, but also discuss subjects with fellow bloggers or your fans. Based on your old posts and your followers hangouts, hosts may come up with questions to understand what you have. 5. Send Cross-Communications I hope you have sent a newsletter. Use the newsletter to welcome new members and highlight some of your old and popular articles. If you're not already doing email marketing, start it with GetResponse's free 30-day trial. 6. Run a Roundup Across Popular Posts In addition to building a newsletter, you can even create a roundup with links to popular posts listed once or twice a month. 7. Share on social media networks It is important for you to realize that at any given time, there may be an entire diverse set of target audiences reading and scanning social media networks. It just means that the group of people who have noticed at 12 noon that your tweet was replaced an hour later by a completely different group. Also represents your old post really. You must have gained a bunch of new followers since the last time you posted on the idea, in July 2015, and these people may have never seen some of your best posts. Bring them back for a spin via social media platforms.
