My business partner and I are looking to take some time off this summer. With that in mind, we thought we could lessen our workload by republishing some of our favorite articles (and mixing the whole with one or two new posts a week instead of 5). I am wondering what best practices would be to get this accomplished without upsetting Google or our readers.
In Wordpress, it seems that changing the date of the post will republish it at the scheduled date in the future. The problem with that is that scheduling can’t be done in advance without temporary removing the post until it is set to be (re)published again. Obviously, this process removes the threat of duplicate content (Google friendly), but does not offer the convenience of scheduling in advance – unless I’m ok with the posts set to be republished are temporarily suspended in the publish queue.
Any ideas, recommendations, stories of how you might have handled this?
