- 20k+ Posts
- All around 200-400 words
- Barely receive traffic
- Mediocre interlinking
- Most of them have no Backlinks, some do
The plan is to launch new content later this year.
I read some case studies on deleting old content and the positive effects it might have. Even more I am afraid of the negative effects 20k+ barely visited pages might have on the new content.
Would you delete old content? If so, what metrics would you use?
I struggle finding a decent way to sort out what to delete and what not. Ahrefs metrics are pretty much useless as their UR metric seems to be completely random and I can't use referring domains as a metric since it doesn't give you any idea of the value of those backlinks.
Right now I am thinking about deleting 80% of the old content, preferably the posts with no strength, and use the rest to link to new money content that will be published eventually.
I could also just keep all the content and hope that Google doesn't care. Please let me know your thoughts.
