Some time ago I noticed that updated posts would appear among recent posts just as newly published ones (in particular I noticed that in the category search). I thought it was a good thing, because as soon as new information was available about a certain topic, I could update my original post and provide my readers with further news about it. Which keeps threads more orderly and exhaustive, in my opinion.
I keep an informative blog and usually collect a wide range of news and links about a certain topic, updating my posts as soon as more news are available about how the topic is evolving (e.g. in case of trials or controversial events).
But recently I got the impression updated posts are no longer included among most recent posts. Is that so? did anybody notice any changes?
I'm just curious to know if it is so, which means I'll have to write a brand new post every time I have an update to share, and link it back to previous entries on that topic.
On a side note, do you think updating the original thread is more useful than starting new posts, or do you think writing a new post and link it back to previous posts about that topic is more effective? Thoughts and opinions are welcome.
Thanks in advance.
