Why is updating website and content auditing popular right now?

Well, 10 years ago, people didn't need to audit their websites. It wasn't a thing. Generally speaking, websites we're pretty new.

Now that sites are getting to be 10, 15, or 20 years old. There's a lot of upkeep and maintenance. Some are referring to this problem of old "blog content decay".

If I'm looking ahead to the future, I think this will be a much more common topic and problem, and process that people follow in the coming years.

In my latest podcast, I sat down with Tom Drake, the owner of MapleMoney.com, and a partner at GetRichSlowly.org.

To revive old content, Tom is no stranger. He started his blog a decade ago. And Get Rich Slowly (founded by JD Roth) was one of the original personal finance blogs started about 15 years ago!

With over 5000 old blog posts to update and audit, it's no easy task. Tom breaks down precisely the process he uses to update (or delete) content.
