    does google ignore site with no new posts?


    My wordpress blog has a few dozen posts, it used to show a few search queries in google search console. I haven't posted in a while and see no queries. Google doesn't count my older posts? Will they start searching my site again once I make new posts, or do I need to do something different?

    Thank you,
    Ian

    No, but adding content does help.

    Hi Ian,

    Google likes content, especially new and fresh quality content. So if you have not updated your website with new content, it is about time that you do. The often you update, the more your chances are when it comes to Google indexing your website

    No, Google does not ignore the websites with no new content if your content is fine and relevant to the user query. Fresh and unique content always matters.
    It also matters the content in your website is up to date or outdated. One more thing there are some websites that contain old content but rank well for some keywords, so proper optimization is also important.

    Google check for new pages in the website and frequently update/index them. It is recommended to add or update website frequently but I personally don't think that it has any effect on rankings.

    No, but adding content regularly helps for SEO needs. Because the search engines love the website which is updated regularly.

    The above site had all of its content added within about a month and has had nothing new added to it since then. It has had pages slapped by penguin and a few other rollouts but it is still pulling traffic to this day over a year later with no new content being added.

    I think it's more to do with that without new content the frequency Google comes and visits reduces, so if you do make an update it can take longer for Google to re index. In addition it's not the case Google likes you less, more that others have updated their site and you are being left behind...
