I’m trying out a new policy here, to remove one article (at least) before adding a new one. This should, over time, improve the site’s authority, if I use the 301 redirects to avoid causing new 404 errors.
The only challenge is finding what articles to remove. I’ve added a page counter plugin, so I can make sure not to delete any popular posts. Finding totally dead posts, however, is harder.
I can’t just look at the site stats. They show only the pages that got view.
I’ll figure this out.
