New bloggers have the advantage over old bloggers

Believe it or not, new bloggers have the advantage over old long time bloggers. Why? Because SEO changes over time.

I have a decade old blog. Articles I posted in 2008, 2009, 2010... do not align with current SEO standards. As a result I am having to spend hundreds of hours bring old articles up to current standards.

A decade ago a 200 - 250 word article with a link to the source may have been fine. In 2018 that is considered link spam.

Then there is the issue with internal links. I am having to spend hours upon hours internal linking to decade old content.

Then there are the changes with content management systems over the years. Wordpress of today is not the same wordpress of a decade ago.

For example, wordpress from 2008 did not offer preview images. Then there is standardization.

If someone were to start a website in 2018 they can start with new content, address modern SEO and not have to deal with thousands of articles that are out of date.

YES, it may be but not in all cases. New blogger doesn't have adequate traffic as old as well as same credibility.

If old blogger do some changes according to new SEO guidelines then definitely they will win the race.

I only have 1,000 more articles to go through.

To help my site I bought Yoast SEO premium, and use it to check my articles.

I started out with around 1,500 articles, and over the past few moths have gotten it down to 1,000 articles.

Even if I go through 10 articles a day, it is going to take 100 days to finish. Plus, I have to keep adding new content.
