Fill Your Archive By WP Back-Dating Posts
The ability to back-date (antedate) posts in WordPress is useful for a number of reasons.
Back-dating allows us to write a post today, but have WordPress display it in the archive as though it was published on a prior date.
Back dating content is very similar to scheduling a post and is most useful for filling out an archive for your direct and referral readers.
Back dating can be useful to allow you to expand out the content of a site without flooding the stream… but be careful not to post them too deep (too far back and not linked to other things) or Google may not find an index them.
I don’t do a lot of back dating routinely but when I have needed I was glad it was there and worked so easily!
