It’s important to update your blog on a regular basis. SEO experts believe that after time search engines will get used to how often the content in your website is updated and will visit accordingly. So once you have decided how often you are going to blog it’s important to keep to this schedule.
Sometimes however it’s impossible to keep to your blogging schedule, what about when you go on holiday? If you have a meeting? If you simply don’t have time that day? One of my customers asked me if it was possible to schedule posts for the future.
The good news is that yes you can write your blog posts when you have time and schedule them for later:
- Log in to your wordpress account and click ‘New Post’ on the top right hand side of the screen.
- Create you blog post as usual but instead of clicking ‘Publish’, choose ‘Edit’ next to ‘Publish immediately’ on the line above the publish button.
- Add the date and time that you want the post to publish.
- Click ‘OK’
- Click ‘Schedule’
And that’s it, simple!

Thank you so much for this! I knew it was possible… but had not figured out how!
