In the past I haven't worried about pages not being picked up well by search if they had value for visitors but I'm revisiting that noting since they are not being seen anyway. 99% of search traffic is landing on just 20% of pages.
- Is there a glass ceiling in which only a set % of a site's pages can be top ranked?
- Remove the ignored pages completely (ignored being 1 visitor per day or less).
- Special internal link setup ensuring non-trafficked pages get buried deep in the archives.
- Stop creating newer content in favor of re-working older content to get it more traffic.
- non-trafficked pages that have solid incoming links
- use removed pages to create a new site? (just a thought)
- Using Google analytics you can select a period of time(e.g. this month) and compare it with another set of data(e.g. the previous two or three months) and then switch to search traffic view and look for pages that now get no traffic that previously did(perhaps a Panda downgrade) or worse spot pages that got no traffic at all by comparing the urls to those in your sitemap.
While not a perfect way to judge a pages volume it's not horribly inaccurate either. Just how much attention is warranted by pages that receive NO search traffic in a post Panda internet? What's your gameplan or take on this?
