John Mueller from Google was asked if "having too many non searched pages on website are bad for SEO?" John didn't say yes or no, he instead said on Twitter - "that's up to you." He said what good is it if no one searches for it?

This is more of a philosophical question; he said "From a philosophical point of view, if nobody searches for them, unless they're providing value (to you / your users) otherwise, why do you need them?"

This goes back to two my older posts; If a Phrase Ranks on Google, But No One Searches for It... and the classic big blue pineapple chair post - but those are super old posts that I am a bit embarrassed to share. :)

Forum discussion at Twitter.
