Is It OK To Edit Articles After Later On?

Any reason why I can't edit the articles on my site later on after the articles are already ranking? What If I wanted to reword something later on, or take something out, or add something in? As long as I am aware of which keywords I'm ranking for, and I leave those in my articles, it wouldn't effect my rankings by changing other things in the articles would it?

Hi Kurt,

Yes, you can edit your articles later on, and then ping them to let search engines know that there's something new on your article. Both search engines and users like articles with current information so this would not harm your webpages' ranking.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

This is actually something google likes because they think you should always update the information on a page whether it is changing some information or adding to it. If you have an article listing some events and now it is going to be the next year then if the event is an annual thing you will have to change the date. This is the king of thing google likes, it is fresh information even though it may be just a sentence it is new. Also if you come up with new information it is just fine to ad to the article.

Just make sure you don't change the title or url slug and you should be fine.

So, how do you "Ping" an article once it's changed? My stuff is getting a bit old and I was thinking about how to refresh without having to start over from scratch as some of my product has remained the same for a while....

You can use sites like Pingler.com to ping your webpages. If you have new content, or if you updated the content of your webpages, then you can ping them using similar sites.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Also make sure that you don't just make minor changes to links. If you just add links to other websites from within the article google may think you are just manipulating PR flow. If you make changes to any article make sure that substantial changes are made to the text as well as outbound link profile.
