How many posts did you publish last year? 

 

I am a big believer of recycling content.  Some of my best ideas are not really new ideas at all.  They are recycled ideas from this sites past.  Why should you let some of your best posts get buried in your website.  Here are a few ways you can recycle your content and get your content to the people.

1. Twitter : You could use socialoomph and set up tweets for the week, or even the next month if you are really organized.  I like being able to retweet out content because I have a lot of new followers and they don’t know about the older posts.  If I post on this site, I will set up socialoomph to send it numberous times.

2. Facebook: I am still messing around with facebook.  I have noticed that when I specifically post to facebook with a larger image more people click through to the site.  I am going to repost old content through my facebook in different ways.

3.  Embedding in the site:  I haven’t done a lot of this yet.  It makes sense to reference your best posts in new posts.  If I created a post on facebook, it would make sense to link back to one of my best posts on facebook, “Developing a social media strategy: facebook.

 

Do you recycle posts?

    Embedded links, especially if they are category specific, are the best and quickest way to get people visiting other parts of the website. So if I say the word Facebook, I link to the Facebook category and as people read over that word, they may click on it to go to more blog posts of that same theme. 😀 Just started this up this year over at 78P

    • I agree! Do you use a program or embed the links manually?

        Until I find a good enough program, I am doing it myself. You know of any good ones?

  • This is good.  I typically catch on to many of the trends and knew about these embedded links.  As a reader I didn’t really get them, but as a blogger it totally makes sense.  Thanks!
