Hi all. Got a question:
A client of mine has a site, that has quite good posions in SE's. But now he decided to make a redesign. This will include deleting most of the text content. Will this affect the ranking?

I would be shocked if the site went up in the rankings. In my experience less text almost always moves a site DOWN. The only exception seems to be if the old design was way over-stuffed with keywords.

It sounds like a russian roulette to me.
But, anyway thanks.
