If you have a blog or a content management system, once you have built enough content there comes a time where you have so many gems you want to share (for those who may have missed it the first time around) that you can deep link to your older pages and resuscitate new life into your pages.
Aside from giving others a chance to discover more about why they like or dislike your business, writing style or blog.
The added benefits of deep links and distributing leverage and traffic from fresh content, is sure to attract search engine spiders and integrate the now aging pages which have established their own authority back into your blog. This content development strategy is a pure win/win tactic you can invoke systematically to create spikes in traffic.
This is one of the few times when having traffic leaving the page they are reading benefits your blog (aside from AdSense or blog monetization) and serves to funnel attention and readers, deeper into the site. Meanwhile the true benefit is link popularity and organic traffic which can be far more beneficial in the long run to establish your brand. Have a higher reader engagement / per session equals higher potential sales conversion for your products or services.
In the interests of moving forward, oftentimes you can find inspiration from the past as guideposts, find new material or just share insights that may have changed over time. Looking back and leveraging content from along the way is not only rewarding to see how things stick the second time around, but if timely in their introduction can spark a chain reaction and give your readers (or searchers) some great reading material worth noting.
