    Hello I am thinking now in 2 posibilities about how to improve the serps of one post:


    1º option

    update the content of the post adding "2016" and doing it more long and better (no just add 2016 everywhere)
    change the meta date of the post creation

    2º option

    create a new post with best content including "2016"
    create a 301 from the old post to the new post


    what do you think is the best option?

    Thanks!

    In my opinion the second opinion is better. Keep the redirect for about 1-2 months for the new page to get indexed properly. After that, you can erase the old page.

    You might consider to re write the post and display both ,

    If you dont duplicate and re wtite the post and leave
    them both it better then kne post.

    2 nd is better if wanted to inly do it as one post.

    Keep the old post and write an entirely new post. If you want you could add a backlink from your 2015 post to the new 2016 post at the bottom. An added line at the bottom saying to check to check out this year's rankings. I hate destroying old content. People still search for 2015 stuff in 2016 and I'd hate losing it. Waste of good content.
