SPI 200: How Deleting a Third of Your Content Can Triple Your Traffic—How to Do a Content Audit with Todd Tresidder

By Pat Flynn on

Welcome to Episode 200! Can you believe we’re already here?

For my 200th episode, I knew I had to do something special. That’s why I’ve brought on my friend Todd Tresidder to tell you all about the awesome power of content auditing.

Todd ran a content audit on his own site,, and the results floored him. By deleting, combining, and updating the hundreds of blog posts on his website, he tripled his site traffic. Todd’s here today to give you a step-by-step walkthrough of how he did it, and how you can do it, too.

This all might sound scary or counterintuitive. How could less content bring in more traffic? Why would you want to delete all those hours of hard work? Todd covers all that and more, including success stories from major businesses that will leave you eager to get started on a content audit of your own.

As someone in the midst of a major content audit himself (which you’ll see very soon in the redesign of, I’m so excited to share Todd’s game-changing approach to improving your website.
