I have a website that was initially built to get visitors from Facebook. It has since been reworked for search traffic, with higher quality, keyword research posts.
The website has around 100, 300-500 word posts that are pretty rubbish. I want to delete these posts, as I am concerned I am being penalised for them, but many of them have organic Pinterest, blog comments and forum backlinks etc.
Should I simply hit delete, or should I delete and redirect them to the relevent category? Many of these posts are a bit random, so there is not an obvious, similar post to delete and redirect to.
Any advice would be greatly received.
