Blogging 201: Day Six – Drive Traffic to Your Archives

Today is about making archived content easier to find for my readers.


Integrate features to draw traffic to your older content, including widgets, related posts, and a “Best of” page.


Top Posts & Pages Widget? Check.

Related Posts Feature? Check.

Categories Widget? Check.

Archives Widget? Check.

‘Best Of’ Page? Custom Menu? Things to think about for the future. I possibly have enough widgets and bits to be getting on with at the moment. I don’t want to crowd anything – but then I have footer space I’m not using so who knows? But perhaps adding some favourite posts to my About Me page might be an idea – although I already have a list of posts tagged as ‘About Me’ showing there … Hmmm. Something to think on, at least!
