I want to revive my website out of the closet and I am wondering the best way to go about it. I know I have to check all the links, but is adding to the posts already there hel

Check the Google tools - Google Analytics and Google Search Console. Have any pages or posts been getting traffic. What's the bounce rate, What is the ranking of your posts? What about queries associated with your site. Info like that can give you direction what to tackle first.

Ok thank you for the advice.

You already know about checking links and make sure you are still an affilaite with the programs those links may be associated with.
Still looking at your old posts do they need editing to trend with the current times such as dates, example of images etc. Also add some new content to those old posts and if needed take some out if they are not related to current trends.

Create some new posts along the way that related to your niche topics and help answer what people are asking.

Also with the helping what people are asking make sure your old posts are doing just that as well.

As you go along re-editing or even add new content make sure you are connect with GSC and Bing Webmaster tools and send in a new site map and request indexing for your old posts once they have been redone. Wishing you well

Thank you Andre

Most welcome Joe

You can edit All except changing the URL. If the URL changes to Google it would be a new post, any ranking that has been done would be lost.

What about changing the post dates after updating. Is that frowned upon?

You can use a plugin that will give it an update time or just mention at the top this post has been updated.

The plugin I use is called WP Last Modified Info

hope that helps Joe

Thanks Andre

That is a good question. Yes, you can revive your old site. Update your posts and work on them. Update them to current. Revamp the articles to make them helpful. Someone wrote a blog about updating an old site abandoned for a while. Type in the search box the magnifying glass and look for content update old blogs many helpful tools there.

Thank you for the tip Brenda.

What's the difference between blogging and writing an article

Thank you Joe, Jeff & Abie!!!

Most welcome :)

I'm glad Abie clarified that, because I thought they were essentially the same!

You're very welcome, Gary!

Blogging or blog posts tend to be informal, casual, and conversational, whereas articles tend to be formal, professional.

That makes sense. Thank you Abie.

Ever Forward,
