When you’re writing a new blog post, you may want to reference something you’ve previously written. For example, if you are writing about an upcoming annual event, you might want to share a link to a post you wrote last year that shared the highlights of the event. Or maybe you’ve developed a new recipe that was based off one you shared a few years ago.
Whatever the specifics, it’s nice to let your readers know about older posts that may interest them. Plus, there are search engine optimization benefits (so long as your links are genuine) to help improve your ranking.
Trying to find that old post can be a cumbersome task, especially if you’ve been blogging for years and you can’t quite remember when you posted something. Fortunately, WordPress knows the value of linking to your own content and has made it easy – it’s just a little hidden and you may not have noticed it before. Watch the video below to see how it’s done.
