๐Ÿ’ก This week's SEO Tip

There has been a lot of conversation going on about the CNET decision to prune old articles to improve their organic search performance. Google has even warned about deleting old content just because of being old.

So, is it really good or dad? As it happens with most decisions in SEO, it depends on the site context: if the information of this old content is still relevant to the site business, searched by users, and if it's already being targeted or not by newer content, among other factors.

I created a flowchart some time ago with the criteria to be used to decide if it's better to optimize or eliminate content from our sites and the best way to do it (just showing a 404 or 410 on your old site pages might not be the best approach even if you decide to not keep the old content), to avoid issues when going through this process.

โ€‹Click here or on the flowchart image to see it bigger.โ€‹
