"Why don't you keep those but by adding some new information on several best traffic posts. Some like information that these are expired already and for the new one the readers can read on this ... ( put a new link ) or sore of that? :)"

Shannon Bruneck replied to Keri Houchin's discussion Bloggers, do you delete old posts?
"I would not delete the old posts and like Kendra said, maybe re-post them hoping to get more traffic this time round. I wouldn't know what sense it makes to leave the time-sensitive ones or the ones with deals and coupons behind."

Nancy Welker replied to Keri Houchin's discussion Bloggers, do you delete old posts?
"No.  But sometimes I recycle old posts and articles, polish them up and send out links to them on FB, Twitter, etc.   You need to keep all your content because larger sites get found by search engines more quickly.  Also if…"

"I delete posts when a company goes out of business or a product has been discontinued. I also delete coupons and deals after a year or two passes, because affiliate managers encourage affiliates to do so. :)"

"No, don't delete anything it will leave you with a TON of broken links and that is very bad for seo and google and for people clicking on your links "

Angela Chen Shui replied to Keri Houchin's discussion Bloggers, do you delete old posts?
"No, never. Your old posts add a sense of history to your new readers and still get google juice and visitors.  Site visitors are smart enough to see that the link that pulled them in is old and will click on your home or other post links to…"

Elizabeth Atwood replied to Keri Houchin's discussion Bloggers, do you delete old posts?
"I would leave them if it was me.  You never know what old posts could still bring traffic in.  Plus if you linked back to those pots anywhere (or others did) you're going to create dead links, and that's not good."

I need a little advice from my fellow bloggers.I've been blogging for three and a half years, so I've built up a long line of posts on my blog. Many of them were time-sensitive things, like deals and coupons. More of my posts now are more durable - like craft projects and recipes.Should I go back and delete my old, useless posts? Although they aren't really adding anything to my blog, I would hate for deleting them to adversely affect my Google PR because of pageviews and comments. Does that…See More
