Hi. Just a beginner here in the digital marketing world. I've got a question in regards to SEO ranking. I've got a website where I sell a product. I've had this site for around 2 years and when it first launched I submitted 6 blogs to the blog page. After I launched it I got caught up with other things and didn't give it much attention. I wanted to ask if i was to start sharing these blogs on social networks would it help increase ranking due to the traffic I am bringing to the website. Considering it's an old blog? If I was to change the date on the blog would this also work in favor of SEO or would there be a chance I may get penalized by google? Any info would be much appreciated

    To increase the effectiveness of your SEO efforts and boost your search engine traffic, you can just update your old content and give yourself an improved freshness score.

    I guess you should update your old blog and use new content in it that will improve your ranking position

    If you were to start sharing these blogs on social networks, you would theoretically increase traffic which could increase your site's search ranking. I say "could" because social traffic isn't a ranking factor, meaning it doesn't have a direct effect on your site's ability to rank.

    Still, like you said, you would be increasing traffic. And more traffic to your site, where ever it comes from, increases the likelihood that your posts earn links, attract return visitors, and otherwise increase your online visibility, brand recognition, and authority. All these things affect SEO in a direct or indirect way.

    As for changing the date, no, that won't help SEO in any significant way though you probably won't be penalized if it's only on a few pages. But, like the other posters here said, updating your posts with fresh, helpful content will help your rankings.

    Hope that helps!

  • If we update our old blogs, correct their navigation structures and do on-page seo of our old blog. It can again relist in google. Google again can rank your website after checking your new and updated content.

    Simply changing the date won't help much for your website. Better to just go and add new and relevant content to your blog to boost your ranking. Make sure that you are posting your blogs as well on your social media outlets to draw in more interest and traffic.
