I am thinking of hitting the refresh button on my custom asp.net website by moving to WordPress install. Since the website is a couple of years old, there is a lot of content that is already indexed by Google, and a lot more ignored (don't know why Google has done that).
The current portal has a tiresome process to add new content and maintain, along with irregular SEO optimizations. Since WordPress is completely different from my current scheme, I plan to dump everything and just use the domain for the new project.
But, before I do that, I thought it's worth knowing the impact of dumping all the indexed pages on SEO and rankings. I guess I will be using the 301 redirect to the homepage for all those URLs.
Just let me know if everything will settle down or it's far better to go with a new domain altogether (I am mulling this option too).
