Here is the outline:

  • Updating the same type of content each year vs creating new one (00:00) Introduction to the episode (1:07)
  • How much content should I have and to what extent does this help my performance? (1:52)
  • Does having a blog / producing new content help my performance on Google? (03:02)
  • Updating older pieces of content (04:00)
  • Is there any way that Google tells us if there’s ‘too much content’ or maybe that content is underperforming? (04:40)
  • Underperforming content and the overall trustworthiness or authority (05:36)
  • Grouping and consolidation of one’s content (06:19)
  • Is word count a ranking factor? (08:07)
  • Specific keywords and word count (8:39)
  • Auto-generated content & canonicalization (9:32)
  • How does Google determine duplicate content? (11:35)

In short, is more content better? The answer is not necessarily, no.

But watch the video, it is a good one.
