I was curious if I was to delete some original photos that I have on a blog that is two years old, will that harm me in the SEO? You see, I wrote out this post when I first started here in Wealthy Affiliate and I am not happy with the quality of the photos on the post. Also, this post is on page one (currently #3), so I do not want anything that will negatively affect the standing. I rely heavily on photos on this website, so I only want to post the best. Thank you!

I changed one of my posts colleen and lost my ranking .
I'm sure the photos drive you crazy but don't do it if they are still working for you.

I agree with the others--if it's on page one, then it isn't broke--as the saying goes: If it aint broke, don't fix it!

If your all ready ranked on first page I'd be a little afraid to mess with it.
Just my thoughts.
there may be additional comments coming from those who may have experienced the same thing and they may be able to let you no from first hand experience.
Wishing you the best

I agree with Triblu. If you are on the first page, I wouldn't mess with it.

Hey Colleen,

Changing the images used on older posts could work in your favour, if they are more relevant.

Though, if this post really is on page 1, 3rd listed, I'm not so sure I would want to touch it... just in case.

Perhaps waiting until it starts to slide down the search results page and THEN change your images, might be a better idea.

Hope you find this helpful.
