Improving Most Popular Blogs

As many of you already know, there can be lots of blogs that we write that can require changes. If you change your domain and website, you can have many broken links.  I have been working hard to minimize those broken links every time I revisit a blog title. Sometimes I Google a topic to see what I wrote and then I click on it to see if it is still current.  If not I fix it. 

I made a brokerage change back at the beginning of 2017. Blogs and posts from 2016 and back reflect my previous brokerage. I am going back to change that logo and text to indicate my current brokerage.  I do not want to confuse a potential client, so I think it is important to be consistent in older posts to reflect the current brokerage and eliminate the previous reference to a brokerage I am no longer affiliated with.

Morning Sheri.

I've seen a lot of people revisiting their previous blogs, making improvements adding photos and the like.  I'm sure, you won't want to do it again, for at least a few months

Good morning Sheri.  It's hard to believe that your gorgeous past posts need any improvement.

Sheri, it is good to have the correct brokerage information in your signature line.

Keep up the good work on updating those blog posts.

It was a grueling task for me and I've learned a valuable lesson in the process of clean up!

Good morning, Sheri... what a great idea to google a topic to look for outdated posts. That hadn't occured to me. I changed my website this spring, but my primary links were redirected, so that helped a lot. But I still have to check out all the posts for other links.

Hi Sheri,
Great job!!!  For those of us who have been on AR a long time, it's a big job to go back and do all the cleaning that's necessary.

Such a wise way to do your spring cleaning!  I also looked for my most popular posts and cleaned them up first.

I love your idea of finding the posts that need updated, Sheri! Your 'issues' were similar to mine as well.

Thanks for participating in the challenge and getting some spring cleaning done on your blog - something everyone really does need to do!

Have a great week ahead!

Sheri, I took a similar approach - to start updating the most visted posts, after I sorted them from the statistics. I had not thought of googling the topics from blogs, but will do that, too.
