What Do You Think? - Will This Hurt Your Website?
So, a member PM'ed me and asked me this.
"Would it hurt my site (meaning Google) if I took a break from writing content for 7 to 10 days?"
Now this is an older site, many years old in fact, with over 450 posts and this member adds fresh content every 3 days with the posts averaging 2500 to 3000 words, sometimes more.
Ok, you're up to speed.
So, my answer.
No not at all.
Firstly Google is not alive - it's an algorithm. People first - search engines second on the list and lower.
Don't let Google control what you do. You have a lot of content ranking and not ranking - moving up and down. Don't worry about it. Take your break.
Ok, that's what I said - I also told this member I would reach out to the community and see what they say.
So, do you agree or disagree with what I said?
Looking forward to your thoughts.
