How To Auto Share Old Blog Posts on Various Social Networking Site

If you are running a tutorial blog or a blog where you write evergreen content, there is no reason that you should stop promoting your old articles. I have already shared tips to promote old blog posts, and today I will be talking about one WordPress plugin, which will help you in social media promotion of old blog posts. Revive old post is a free WordPress plugin which supports Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and will automatically share your old posts on these network. This

Twitter is one of the most famous social networking site for bloggers, and Internet marketers, and if you have built a credible profile on Twitter, your shared links will have great value. I have already talked about importance of tweeting your posts multiple time, and we will be taking the same approach here, but for an indefinite time. We will be looking at tweet old post WordPress plugin, which is a simple to use plugin for resharing your old blog posts in Twitter.

How to use Revive Old Post for Auto-sharing old content:

Revive old post is a simple WordPress plugin, which will let you quickly configure you settings to start sharing your old posts on selected social networking sites. Once you have configured the plugin, it will auto share posts from your blog, after specific time interval. I have used others automation tools like Hootsuite, Socialoomph which let us schedule tweet, but they require manual work. This plugin will automatically share old post on social media accounts and you can keep driving decent traffic on your old blog posts.

To use this plugin:

  • Search for Revive old post, and install, activate this plugin.
  • Go to settings of the plugin
  • Authenticate it with your Twitter account
  • Authenticate it with Facebook and LinkedIn
  • Add hashtag
  • Share link, share link + body
  • URL shortener
  • Prefix or Suffix text
  • Exclude categories

One feature which I find very handy is post exclude feature. You can exclude any post from being shared using this plugin, which will be helpful to avoid sharing old posts which have lost its value.

All this settings are easy to understand, and if you can easily configure it. Revive old post also let you exclude specific blog posts from auto tweeting. This is useful, when you selected certain  category but want to exclude specific post. For WordPress blogger, revive old post is a great promotion plugin, and you should start using it now. Do keep a decent time-interval between your shares, else it will annoy your followers. For Facebook, you can try Postplanner or Bufferapp, both are good.

This plugin also have a pro-version which will let you add multiple Twitter account and auto-share featured images with the post. Adding images with your share will enhance the reachablity of your shared content.

Do let me know what other methods you are using to reshare your old content on Social media sites? If you find this plugin useful, do consider sharing it on Facebook and Twitter.

    Was looking for something like this. Finding evergreen posts and tweeting them manually consumes a lot of time. Thanks Harsh. :)

    Is there any option in this plugin to attach Category as hashtag to the tweets?

    Example: Post-Title + #Category + URL

    Mr. Harsh, I am glad that you have shared this. Currently I am using “Evergreen Post Tweeter” for my blog. But it is limited to twitter only. But I think this is the time to switch to the plugin You mentioned.

    This is a sweet find Harsh, this is going to come in handy on both of my business blogs. I HATE how long it takes to schedule tweets manually.

    That’s pretty impressive. The old posts more or less dies if it has no or less value on the SERP. So this trick can be used on such posts ;)
