Using Timestamp feature to the fullest (Wordpress)

    Introduction:

    Many of us do get busy at times with new projects and orders and hence get less time to update our blogs regularly which is a very important part of SEO. (regular updates keep the crawlers/bots on their toes).
    SEMrush
    At such times many of us post many entries at a time forgetting that the crawler will still find the many entries as "one" update. You can just modify this habit a little by using this simple trick included in the Wordpress (wordpress.org) script.

    WordPress has a feature which allows you to schedule an article or post to be published at a future date. You can finish writing articles when you have free time and allow them to be posted at a future date when you know you will be busy and won't be able to devote that time to your blog.

    Here is how to go about doing it:

    1. Go to your Write Post as usual (Admin Area --> Write --> Post/Page)
      ---
    2. Fill in the regular details you usually fill in and type the post
      ---
    3. Now comes the trick - In the right sidebar of the same page, look for "Post Timestamp"
      [​IMG]
      Make sure that the "Edit Timestamp" is checked and put in the date and time you want the post to come up on.
      I have made a Merry Christmas post for 25th of this December coz I know I will be holidaying that day and won't be able to post.
      ---
    4. Hit the "Publish" button and NOT the "Save" Button.

      To View your "Scheduled Entries" go to your "Dashboard" and check the right sidebar.
      Example:

    Hope this helps. :)
