    I have a dilemma, I have some "best x of 2016" articles on some of my sites, and since it's not 2016 anymore they're not going to do me any good.

    Simply put, do you guys rewrite the articles and redirect from the 2016 url to the new 2017 one or leave the old article intact and throw a link on that page to the new 2017 one?

    Never put the year in the URL. Rookie mistake ;) Instead, put the year in the title/content
