The 10 Most Common Errors in Content Audits.

Many can fall for cheap #SEO advice and get nothing.

I've audited small and large content websites to develop profitable processes.

This thread is for you 🧵 1. Only using one data source to delete articles.

Guru advice says to delete it, I would never do that.
