Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this. I recently changed the niche of my blog (well a few times actually) from a magazine to a money making blog. The problem is, while my blog was a magazine, I had a high bounce rate and still do because I haven't exactly deleted these old posts. Of course, my new posts (the actual useful ones) do not have a high bounce rate... but because of the high bounce rate on the large # of previous magazine posts (that are now archived and only accessible through search engines), the bounce rate for the main domain is still high (from Google Analytics). The main question is: will the bounce rate on these old posts influence my blog negatively in any way (even though they are archived)? I figure it will because it raises the overall bounce rate on my main domain...? But then deleting all the old, unrelated posts will also cause a bunch of broken links. What do you suggest?
