I have some older posts that are getting looked at.  These date back a couple of years, should I repost them?  Should I modify them a little and pass them off as "new" posts?  Or is it a bad idea that will cause the google gods to frown?

Thanks I had read conflicting suggestions online.  I think I will give it a re-work.

Interesting...I posted a whole response to you and it's gone. Don't change the date on an old post that is getting traffic. Google will look at it as a new post and you'll lose all the Google love that post is bringing in now. BTDT.

If it's bringing in readers, maybe add some pertinent new info to it. Maybe a new pic or new dates or something. But, you've already got the traffic, that's what you want.

Go ahead and repost it, just don't copy it and post it as a new post. (unless you reword it a bit and add diff pix).
