Like Barbara Todaro we like to write fresh posts.  Occasionally we will write a follow up on a post, or something else on the subject.  A

Sometimes. It is easy to update and re-blog some posts.

In my WordPress blog, I have installed plug-ins that display my popular blog articles and related blog articles. I write evergreen educational articles that do not go stale.  When a reader is reading the current article A1 on topic A, they will also see related same category articles A2, A3, A4 for more info and also popular articles in other categories B, C and D, etc.  Over time, each article becomes part of a useful reference library. I may compile categories into e-books to give as a free bonus to website subscribers.

Just did it this morning.  Last May I wrote a blog about competitive offers in Houston's sellers' market.  I just tweaked it and put it out again.  I also linked to it from a new post as it added a more full meaning to my topic on the new post.

I revisit them  and may write a new post on the same or similar topic but it's never just a copy and paste.

I sure do Michael. I copy and paste the links onto Google+ again and they always get more hits.

Yes, and no.  I search & reapply/recycle all the time, but not usually as blog posts.  I will take them and share on social media, add to my newsletters and I link to some on my best ones on my confirmation emails. I also create shorter versions for some of my send out card campaigns.

In terms of reusing for blog fodder, I rarely do that now.  There were a couple that I recycled and made  better a few years later (I prob. did for 8-10 posts). And, when I created my WP blog, I did take versions I wrote on here and made changes to them on my own site.

In general, just reusing you content (and not significantly changing) will do little for you from an SEO perspective.

Oh the otherhand, what I also try to do is go back to my top 10 (and sometimes top 20) and edit/improve/expand them.  This helps keep them fresh and up to date.  And, the added content (even if it's just a paragraph or a pictutre) can help your customers (and your ranking).

No, but I suppose I should look into it and see if there's any value. Might take more time to do that than just do a new one.

Hi Michael -- I will look at them and see if there is a different way of looking at a topic,  to spark an idea -- sometimes a comment on one of them will be the inspiration for an entirely different stream of thought.   You never know where ideas or concepts will be born.

I wanted to!  I had posted hundreds on Trulia over the years, and they recently shut it down.  I should have transferred some over!  Oh well, will make me write about new topics instead.
