Improve Blog Orginization And Increase Traffic By Editing the Post Time and Date in Blogger

Okay I was asked this question and figured that I would post the answer here as I have noticed this same questions other places as well.

Changing the time and date of a post is very beneficial in blog organization. By backdating certain posts so that they don't go to your main page in conjunction with the post's "permalink" is a great way to add content to your site like thank you posts for subscriptions, donations, etc. or to create traffic funnels or a series of articles without having all of them clutter the main page.

It is also a great way to give new life to an old post. I know there have been times when I have gone back over my posts and realized that I had learned a lot since the original post and it needed updating. After updating the post edit the time and date to be current and it will reappear on your main page. I have seen this really make a difference in traffic to an article.

Well enough with the introduction

Step 1

Go to your Posting Tab and either Create a new post or Edit an existing post. Once you have the post opened you should see a screen like this.



Step 2
Click on the Post Options link circled in the picture. This will open a drop down and you will see where you can edit the Post time and date.


Once you have changed the time and date to what you want click on the publish post button. And you are done.

later all and have a profitable and productive blogging day

I have been so busy lately. much busier than I expected. i have really been trying to allocated time and prioritize so as to get things done, and honestly I had to put the newsletter low on the priority list.

later all and have a profitable and productive day.
