Hi

You have four icons bottom of each site content doc.

G when google index your post, bucket if you organize your posts in buckets, a publish sign and the trash can.

We do tend to keep ours, after the post is published you may click on the green button, and it takes you directly to where your post is.

They can also be back ups for whatever need or use in the future.

So I would keep them.

For future reference, if you edited a document in site content and published it, future edits has to be done in WordPress. Site content and WordPress work independently.

I'd place my images in a document in site content and publish it to my site. it will be added to my WordPress media library. Then delete the “temporary image” doc in site content so that it does not get indexed as well.

I still use Site content Janice and I don't delete the posts that I write there. In fact, it has been counting my words since I started here and it amuses me to see I'm up to 300,000 words so far.

It won't cause you any problems, so leave them there.

Hi Janice, I don't use Site Content for much but, if I did, I'd certainly keep the copy there because it might be useful for a backup copy at some time.

I probably won't use it in future. Just developed the habit of writing my blogs in site content following the training, although I do like the idea of keeping a back-up copy.

Well Janice,
I know this was not what you are asking about,,, just in case it's useful ...
Because I do some work (research and outlines) on iPhone and editing on PC I use a (free) third party App for all my work, Whatever I do on iPhone shows up on PC and vice versa, When I've edited I copy the final version into my WP dashboard.
That way when I can't get to my PC but have time with iPhone I can still do some work. And after I've copied into WP I've always got a backup copy.
:-)

View Sitecontent as a way to publish your posts in an easy way. Wordpress can look intimidating at first. It's goal is to help you publish posts. So, after you publish, SiteContent can do nothing else.

SiteContent is a launch pad. And I agree with Joe that it doesn't matter to leave there all the posts you have launched.

Thank you for the explanation. I wanted to make sure that I hadn't caused any confusion or problems with seo by keeping them.
