Here is a quick tip for WordPress users that takes seconds and has significant impact.
Use the “Recent Comments” widget in your sidebar. It doesn’t matter where you put it- I usually bury mine under everything else.
Why use it? Every time you approve a new comment it is added to your sidebar and the content on your webpages changes.
This will be seen as “fresh” content by Google et al. ( Another latin insertion… I know… I use latin ad nauseum.)
You can get fancy plugins that do this but I don’t like sidebar clutter and prefer default.
