Delete or NOT to delete.?

Last Update: February 26, 2018

I am doing some work for a client, travel agent, and they have over 1,000 pages which have outdated information. This includes old holiday itineraries, discontinued countries and old travel information which are outdated and are no longer used or needed.

Should I delete these pages and posts and stick in a 410?

Is there any point in trying any redirects, rewriting or anything because the content I am redirecting to will also be out of date within 6 months.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Bear in mind that NONE of these pages rank or bring in any organic traffic.

I want to delete them to make the website more manageable and more relevant.

Most of them do have quite a lot of duplicate content.

Archive them so they aren't available through the main menu. They can still have some ranking juice with backlinks.

Thank you for reaching out to me! But this is a little over my head sorry.

Maybe instead of deleting you revise those posts on the title and meta description.
