Need some advice - should I improve the content I already have or keep adding new "posts"?

    Hi all,

    So it has been almost a year since I started my blog - I currently have 254 "posts" and over 11,000 tags. I am wondering, should I invest my time in improving the content I already have for each post, or just continue adding new content (but with more quality)? If you want to see what I have so far, you can visit the blog here (no self-promotion intended):

    Thanks for your time :).

    Sfidirectory,

    It couldn't hurt to better optimize your old posts but it would be wise to not fall off adding new content. Do you see any activity on old posts in an analytical platform (if any) you are using? Do they contain keywords that you are trying to rank for? If so it would be easier to optimize something already there than to add something new.

    Here is an informative post on driving more traffic to old posts,

    Hope that helps,

    Shawn

    Too add on to what thecontent said, improve the articles that are driving traffic, or the articles that are worth it. For example if you have an article that is on page two of a certain keyword, and is driving some traffic then you should focus on that article to help boost the search engine traffic. If its bringing in little to no traffic then its not worth it and you should focus on something else.

    That link provided me with some good advice, thanks for sharing it :). The majority of visitors I get are from search engines, and Google is my most popular source of visitors (obviously). Each one of my posts doesn't have any content per se, but I notice that I get a lot of visitors via my tags - and it has been that way for about 9 months now. I didn't have the time initially to create content for each post, but now I regret not doing so. I think that I am going to improve 10 posts a day and add one new one per day for now...
