Evergreen posts are posts that contain information that is fairly timeless. That will be as useful and interesting five years from now as they are today.
Examples are evergreen topics, for a variety of subjects are:
- 50 uses for WD-40
- 35 non traditional uses for Coca-Cola
- Safety reviews of older cars
- Famous mosques of North Africa
- Thankstiving recipes
- Best Christmas tree decorations
- Basic electrical wiring
- Basic plumbing repairs
- A guide to different shark species

Through the use of evergreen posts you create “reference posts” and you will be surprised over time how these reference posts attract links (provided they are well written and useful). I sometimes refer to evergreen posts as “link bait”.

Your web readers do the same.
