If you have a popular post(s), leave them alone.
About ten days ago, I wrote a post on my other blog. Amazingly, within hours, I was getting hits/views.
After reviewing the post, “one more time”, I decided to make a small change to it.
That was a mistake!
The next day, I had no hits/views of the post. I checked the search terms others has used the day before, and finally found a link to my blog, but not directly to the post (permalink).
I immediately changed the post to the original content, and began to watch it.
Within a few days, I began to start getting hits/views again.
I don’t know how many visitors I lost, due to me changing the post, but I’m sure it was a few hundred.
It’s one thing to update old post that are buried in your archives, however, if you have a post that is popular, or is getting regular hits/views, leave it alone
Has this ever happened to you?
How did you correct the problem?
