Update or Delete Old Content?

Last Update: April 01, 2019

This is a really important question for us all. Turns out, if we don't update our older content to make sure it is relevant and useful, it can hurt your website. The following article by SEJ is awesome and everyone here should check it out. Free and I get nothing for this, it is just really good information.

As is mine. We always continue to learn more about our niches and can then update our content with that new knowledge.

Always good to update old content it should be part of the maintenance we do for our website.

There may be images not working or links not quite right even changed wording plus any dates within the content that may need replacing as well

I have updated very old content from when I started back in 2014 and 3 got on the first page on Goole shortly after it. So it does work and certainly worthwhile.

Thank you for the reminder Curtis

Yes, I update all my content every three months at least.

Great to hear I went through some Amazon links recently and had to update as the old links were HTTP and not https so felt better to update with a new link, fortunately, the images and the products were still there so just a short link change was needed.

Enjoy the rest of your week ahead
