I want to 410 a few thousand (around 8, 000) old articles from our Wordpress blog. The articles have no visits the last 2 years, no backlinks and no internal links.
I discovered a plugin called ‘410 for Wordpress’ which I was thinking to install. Has any of you used that before? Would it harm SEO?
Also, what would be the best way to remove those 8, 000 articles? I haven’t done this before so I’m a bit sceptical if I need to start removing a few of them first or all of them at once.
Any ideas would be much appreciated, thank you all in advance!
