7 Ways You Can Repurpose Your Old Blog Posts to Get More Traffic

As a blogger, you’re in the business of sharing ideas.

You have to consistently come up with new ideas and turn those ideas into blog posts that dazzle your readers. And you want to keep those readers happy and engaged, so you work your butt off to publish new posts on a regular basis.

It’s outdated, overly simplified, or just plain wrong. Here’s how I know:

Over the last eight years, the sites I’ve built have received over 200 million page views. I’ve also worked with thousands of students in every imaginable niche, and I’ve seen firsthand what works and what doesn’t.

And lots of the advice out there… it just doesn’t work.

In particular, five myths really bother me. If you’re struggling to increase your traffic, chances are it’s because you’ve bought into one of these myths.

Why Your Blog Needs a Tagline (and How to Create the Perfect One)

Why Your Blog Needs a Tagline (and How to Create the Perfect One)

Does your blog attract embarrassingly few readers?

And do you struggle to convert any of them into loyal subscribers?

The fact is, once you learn how to start a blog, even if your content rocks, you could still be driving people away by neglecting one simple thing.

If a key element on your blog is either inadequate — or missing entirely —  visitors could feel confused and leave.
