Last month I just made unusual decision deleted 9,309 old blog posts from my site onlinescoops.com. I removed 80% of our content. You will ask your self, Why? Do I can about my site SEO? What about my backlinks? This is the old topic, many experts in the fields of SEO got valuable suggestions. But that does not mean one said everyone must follow. I have chosen the opposite side of most people. Which I am ready to deal with its consequences. It’s not nice to see writing great content than disappear from the spammy posts that don’t bring value to your site.
For a long time protecting my old bad behaviour. I do accept I didn’t write these articles my self. Some were duplicate from other blogs, some were only 100 words with video or funny picture. Before Facebook implemented a spam filter on pages, I did make lots of money from Adsense. But if I can tell you now they add no value on my site than drugging it backwards. I had to make a choice, to keep junk or to work rebuild quality content.
Looking at the site performance, there is no change with what so ever. Just With recently Google Panda changes looking to penalise websites for thin-content and other many recently updated on Google algorithmic penalties for content. Are you 100% sure everything on your website presents you in the good standing? In this post, I’m hoping to persuade you to do less content before you make more.
What is the purpose of a blog?
The blog purpose is to offer answers on internet user who are looking for that kind of information. But the modern website content serves so many purposes now; to reform customers, build a brand, establish your expertise, describe your services, address on your industry and more. Now the question remains does 100-word content address all these things. Not to mention content produced to rank for specific keywords as well as content that readjusted SEO best practice in the past but which wouldn’t keep up today.
