To “post” something means to announce or publish something, ultimately letting other people know of it – and that’s what “I will keep you posted” mean; to let you know or update you about something.
If someone asked you about an ongoing project, you could say, “I’ll keep you posted about the developments on the project.” And that would mean you’ll contact and update them for any progress and changes in the project.
Note that it is slightly informal, so use it appropriately.
Here are some more formal phrases you can use:
I will inform you of any significant developments
I will be sure to keep you informed.
I will keep you up to date.
I will let you know of any further related developments.
I will advise you when I learn more.
