By default, WordPress displays your posts in the same order that you published them (in reverse chronological order).

And that's OK ... Displaying your most recent posts on your homepage is definitely a good idea ...

But, there's a small "problem" ... As your site grows, you'll have to limit the number of displayed posts, otherwise you'll end up with an endless homepage ... Which means that your older posts won't appear on your homepage anymore ...

Yes, of course, you can use pagination buttons or the traditional "Older posts" link, but let's face it, usually, your visitors are not ready to browse dozens of pages in order to find older content pieces.

In other words, you'll have to find a way to efficiently revive your older posts ... The most common solution is to change the date on several posts in order to "push" them back to your homepage. But, continuosly changing the date on dozens or hundreds of older posts could be very annoying ...

So, I've decided to create this short tutorial where I will show you how easy is to revive your older posts by setting up a simple drag-and-drop interface that will allow you to quickly reorder your posts right from the Wordpress admin panel.

Will this change or hinder Google from finding them? Will 404 error messages increase? Does this make sense?

Nothing like that. It's just the display order within your site.
