Here at the best music video blog ever created (The Laptop Sessions, that is), we pride ourselves on coming up with fresh, new ideas to keep you interested and to get more and more folks to visit our blog. We just introduced “The Weekend Review” to the site, and now I bring you our latest creation: From the Archives!
You see, a video I recorded a year ago is just as good (and relevant) as a video I recorded yesterday. But, in Google’s eyes, these old posts are just that: old! So, they drop off of Google and are never to be seen again. Thankfully, YouTube tends to be kind to old “seasoned” videos, so we still get hits on those.
Anyway, there are a few WordPress plugins that will actually change the timestamp on your old posts, literally making them new again. But, years from now, I want to look back and see what I was doing on December 24th of 2007, so I don’t think that’s the best option.
So, I found another plugin that just inserts one of our old blog posts onto the homepage (right at the bottom) dynamically every time you load the homepage. So, every new visit to the homepage is a different experience! Try it out and see what I mean.
I hope this will bring our old posts back into light again, at least until I can find an even better SEO’d solution…
