If it aint broke – don’t fix it!

If it aint broke – don’t fix it! Don’t do it!

Don’t change your blog or web site UNLESS it is an absolute mess and is totally utterly WORTHLESS!

OK – I just had to get these words of wisdom out there because I get many questions that ask me about FIXING sites based on what I cover in my training.

Hey! If you already have a site and it’s doing OK or maybe even just starting out – there is no reason to consider making any drastic changes based on my suggestions – such as site structure and my revolutionary “Pages NOT Posts” strategy.

I know Pages Not Posts is very compelling and it makes sense to structure a new site that way – but there is no need to run out and rebuild your OLD existing sites!

Be careful about “starting over” or “changing” your blog too much… Be careful deleting posts or pages or adding nofollow to archives, tag pages, categories etc. There is no need to do “no index” for parts of your site if you have a good functional web site that is getting indexed by Google!

The best way to make more money is by following the path of least resistance and focusing efforts on the things that bring the greatest amount of return.
Generally – fixing things or tweaking them is going to be less monumental than creating something new that is truly awesome!

So – consider that a lot of the things we do is “busy work”. It’s noodling. It’s working for works sake. It’s not always a great way to make more money.

I need to convey what my philosophy is and hopefully stop you from doing unnecessary work!

NEVER do work OVER again that you have already done UNLESS it is absolutely necessary.

You need to focus on doing things that will make you more money! Not do busy work to fix old stuff. I’m not saying NEVER fix old stuff – but that generally that is not the best way to make money!

OK – so let’s put this in perspective.

I know that the new “Pages NOT Posts” site strategy is connecting with a lot of people and a lot of you are excited about what it can do for you – BUT – I would be careful NOT to look backwards and want to apply it to your older sites 100%

It’s mainly for your new sites. Build sites from the ground up the best way you can!

Let me explain…

New sites – go for it! Do it! Pages not Posts makes sense!

Make your home page a static page – and put your best articles on PAGES (not posts) and then go announce your new pages in POSTS!

“Pages NOT Posts” works as a site structure and linking strategy and will get your new blog many more top rankings faster and easier than ever and you’ll be glad you did it!

Old sites – don’t do it!

Well – you CAN start using PAGES more on your old sites – add your best stuff to pages using your best content and then announcing them with POSTS in your blog. 

Pages and posts work together – both are better – even on an old blog! But hey there is no need to change the site structure or blog structure on an older site – especially if it is working!

You have already done that work – do not do it again!

Don’t throw a monkey wrench in and change things if you already have many pages indexed. Just build on what you have and then improve future traffic by adding good pages to the existing site and announcing the pages with posts.

OK! I just wanted to make sure you understand PAGES not POSTS is not the ONLY way that works!

Putting your best content on pages and announcing them in posts are great ways to get more top rakings and traffic from your blog and smart to do with NEW sites – but there is no reason to do busy work and fix things by tearing apart old sites – time is better spent creating new stuff!

  2. Use Google Analytics to assess where pitfalls may exist on your site and fix those problems before you do a complete overhaul. After you’ve made changes, continue to monitor with Analytics to make sure visitor behavior is how you want it. If it isn’t, make more tweaks.

  10. Absolutely correct. Fixing only applies to broken sites. Probably there are those who think that they have started out their websites on the wrong foot and thought that they should change or ‘fix’ it. ‘Fixing’ may be applied on a case by case basis. If the website is relatively still new, this may be okay.
