---- Identifying low quality pages and removing them
mememax - 9:27 am on Dec 16, 2011 (gmt 0)Low quality pages in the eyes of google: you can identify those pages as you said before, divide them into:
The process you've described is a good one, however if I were you I will try to create 2 groups of pages.
- the ones which give you traffic (maybe they're landing pages of a referral link), don't delete these ones, just be sure they're removed from SE with noindex and/or robots exclusion
- the ones which doesn't add value nor receive traffic, you can delete these ones, redirecting the ones which has inbound links
low quality pages in the eyes of your users: have a look at those pages which receive traffic but have an high bounce rate and decide what is the best strategy: url removal or improve their content or merge their content with another page.
