    Best practices for rewritten WP posts for Googlebot?

    Let's suppose I make a post on a WP site, and a day or so later I see that Google has indexed the page.

    About a week later I decide to substantially rewrite the post. Let's say I had to improve the readability with shorter sentences, eliminate passive voice, and tweak the kw's a bit. Stuff like that.



    What's the best practices as to what to do with regard to Google? (because the previous version is already indexed)

    Should I just simply update the existing post with the new text and leave it at that?
    (and Googlebot will recraw the new version)

    Or should I delete the old post and make a whole new post with the updated content and a new WP postnumber?
    (if so, should I make the title of the new post slightly different?)

    Sorry, but this forum is dedicated to content for people, not for bots. We don't discuss SEO here.
