    Hello there. Another thread from me, this morning. Just cant stop love BHW :)

    Anyway, Im having a site that ranks very goood and it has a lot of great information to the visitors. But I cant sell so much on my site. I reveal to much information. Now Im curious about to know what will happen if I delete a bit of the information on my site, and past new information, about the CB product I promote?

    Will Google down-grade me just because I changed so much great info? I can sell more products if I do this way..

    Let me hear what you guys think!

    Very hard to say about this, as I have never done this before. But whenever you change the content, google ranks your site accordingly. Just keep a track of the changes. If you go up in the ranks then keep the same content, but if you drop in rankings, try to revert back and look for alternative testing. Something like split testing or A/B testing.

    If you are ranking well with your current content and you remove it, chances are pretty good that you will lose rank. If you need to remove certain parts of it because it reveals too much; rewrite it or add new content using the important keywords. For example: instead of teaching them how to train a dog, list the benefits of dog training.

    It all depends what you replace it with...it may drop a bit then increase in ranking again. All you can do ix experiment. Try changing a bit at a time.

    Yeah I understand your point mate. I know that this is some kind of split testing but I will try.

    Yeah, I get your point to mate. I will do like you said, list the benefits of dog training instead of teaching them how to train a dog..

    Yeah ofcourse. I wont replace dog training to table information. Yeah. I will let you guys know how it did go so others can take benefits from this and learn from my test.

    I have changed my main money site homepage quite a few times but I have always kept my page and post titles exactly the same and so far, I haven't lost a bit of ranking. Having said that, I always crap myself straight after thinking I am doomed and about to kicked out by G but as yet I am ok...

    As others have said, you might see an effect, but try and be careful. If I were you I'd replace any content taken off with new content and similar keywords.

    Either way try to balance any changes you make and Google likely won't hurt you.

    This is exactly what I have done. On my main page I havent done so much change, but on my inner page I Have made a huge change and that page was not ranking so well at all though but its just the backlink building. I got to start with that.

    Well, there's a better way to make your blog sell more without deleting the content. I won't reveal much of the method here, but you can get an idea of what it is http://www.dagondesign.com/articles/expanding-text-plugin-for-wordpress/.
