    I have been running a side project for a number of years, writing content of varying quality and changing permalinks multiple times over.

    I have approximately 150 articles.

    It has gotten to the point where I have been completely de-ranked after holding top spots for a number of keywords for a number of years.

    How my search traffic has reduced:

    The lack of experience in my earlier days has left me with nothing but 600+ links on Google that link through to 404s, and backlinks that also 404.

    I have no actions manual actions take against me.

    What should I do?
    Should I migrate my content and start afresh, forgetting my few backlinks?
    Should I set up 301 redirects for all my links?
    Should I revamp every post, and hope I can regain my previous ranks?

    If going in and putting up 301 redirects for all your posts is too time consuming, install a Wordpress plugin that places 301 redirects to your homepage for all your 404 pages and put up the content with the correct permalinks once and for all.
