The Life and Times of Evergreen Content
Evergreen content: What is it? Why is it important? You may think there are several kinds of content: videos, audio, images, or writing.

What Is Evergreen Content?
Evergreen content is relevant into the future, but what does this mean? Think about a book written in the 1920s.

Why Is Evergreen Content Important?

Of course getting that initial bump of traffic because people are interested in Hurricane Harvey is nice, but most of the time we are more interested in long-term traffic.
