  31. Hello Babanature,

    Re-post your content comes with several benefit when we talk about blog traffic and healthy relationship with your existing as well as new audience.

    You can publish it in the usual time for yourself so that readers could still see it and you can also re-post it at other times so that users from a different time zone can see it as well.

    Another reason to re-post content is to attract new readers. If your readership grows, your blog will grow.

    This means that your new fans never see your old records. Re-publication of content allows new readers to evaluate your old posts.

    Revive Old Post is a popular plugin that allows you to automatically share your content and I’ve also used it and have great experience with it. Eventually, thanks for sharing your informative experience with us.

    With best wishes,

    Amar Kumar
