Get Rid of ROT

Redundant, outdated, and trivial content (ROT) is a real problem for many web content creators. Without keeping close track of our pages, our websites can grow out of control with information that is no longer or has never been useful to our readers.

 

One way to get control of a website with multiple pages is by conducting a site audit and using it as a tool to identify pages that should be deleted.

 

For more information on conducting an audit of your site and getting rid of ROT contact our Web Content Team.
