I have a site thats been up for over 10 years. About 3 years ago I started an article directory on the back end with content form some of the article providers. At the time it added a ton of pages to the site (over 10,000+) adding new content everyday. I have not added to those in at least a year maybe 2 except for a little here and there.
Since Panda I am thinking about getting rid of that content and doing a 301 redirect to the home page from that directory.
I do get "some" traffic from those articles but the bounce rate is pretty high. My original intent was to add new content but due to the nature of articles I am sure it's duplicate content. It made sense at the time now I am not sure if makes sense to lose it. What do you think?
If I do end up doing a redirect what is the best way to go about it so I dont get hit with a penality?
