Dan01: You should delete/noindex pages, which are getting traffic, but are not performing well: high bounce rate etc. because those are pages, which are hurting you, not those, who are not ranking at all, because from Google algo POV - such pages do not exist.
Thanks for your comment onebuyone.
We already deleted the pages with no traffic. Now we are deleting the articles with very little traffic. We don't want to delete pages that get 3+ visits every month.
We'll look at bounce rate down the line.
NoIndex vs Deleting:
SGT was asking if noindex was a good strategy. Personally, I agree with the person who said in some future Panda iteration these pages could bring us down too.
