I have a wordpress site I built as an experiment that I would deem as poor quality. it was an experiment, and didn't work.
I have a theory that not only has google moved away from doing things on a page level, up to the domain level, but that it also looks at the entire portfolio associated with a webmaster, so I've decided to kill off the site.
The question is, what's the best way to do it. For quicker results, should a somehow redirect the entire domain so that all pages return a 410 gone result? Or simply remove the content so it shows 403's?
Or is there some other way?
It garners virtually no traffic, but i would like to keep the data base and site design intact, but inaccessible to everyone.
