Hey, guys! Want to ask you maybe a little bit novice question. I'm almost sure what will be the answer, but I still want to have opinions from webmasters who already did the same thing on their websites.
I'm performing a SEO cleaning of old outdated content on my website. I found a lot of articles that are thin, low quality, etc. I updated a lot of them, I also deleted a lot of them and gave 410 error. But I've deleted only those articles which didn't have inbound links to them.
The problem is that I have a bunch of articles that are thin and low quality too, but there is no option to update them. All these articles have a great inbound links and that's the main reason why I can't delete them. The question is will the noindex will be the best solution? How about links that are pointing to these pages? Will I lose the links juice effect in such case? Will be very appreciate for your answers.
