One disadvantage of blogs is that older posts are often buried in oblivion because of its dynamism and chronological order. Although blogs are search engine friendly, it doesn’t generally mean that all published posts can appear in search results that’s why the necessity of exposing your blog’s content is important to increasing page views and reducing bounce rate.

There are many ways to showcase your older posts which include using plugins (that is if you’re using WordPress). Commonly used are Popularity Contest plus widget, Random Pages Widget and the Static Random Posts Widget which I use.

The latter that was recently released makes it possible to showcase your older posts based on your filtered category and refresh rate you’ve set in the admin panel.

These plugins though can help increase your blog’s page views; it’s not always a substitute for compelling content.
