Sometimes, you may wish to kill or get rid of your website. Maybe you are no longer in the business or got some passion and no time to manage your site.
Whatever the reason is, getting rid of your website is easy. Although never updating or posting is a way, the website may be indexed by search engines, and you might get clients’ queries. So you will like to bury the website in the deep, so there are no traces of the existence of your old website.
People who are weak in the heart might never accomplish such a thing, which is why they end up in the seamless gutter. They don’t comprehend the situation well enough. No, it’s more than probable that they lack the necessary courage.
Here are some of the things that you can do to kill a website:
1. Subscribe to Link Farms and banned websites.
A decent SEO analyst knows that linking to bad sites like link farms, web rings, and free for all websites is very bad and could mean death for your website. So there you have it, one straightforward way to kill a website.
2. Give away one-way outward links.
You feel generous; with a PageRank of 8, why wouldn’t you be? So you shout to the whole online world that you are giving free for all one-way outward links with no “nofollow”. As the news leaks out, hundreds and maybe thousands will go to you asking for links; go on, give them links, and show them how generous you are—death by haemorrhage, sure, death.
Before you know it, you will need a transfusion with all the PageRank haemorrhaging you’re doing. Will you go with a transfusion? Nope, give it all away, and before you know it, another website is dead.
3. Do not update, do not submit, do nothing.
Let your website be, let it be a sitting duck, just another website. It is a slow process; the first thing you’ll lose is your visitors, next your ranking, and before you know it, you will be no one, a non-entity. It might not be death, but it’s a fate worst than death itself.
There you go, folks, three proven methods of eliminating your site. It does not matter if you have spent countless sleepless nights thinking of what to compose or invested hundreds and even thousands of dollars in hosting and marketing; it is your cash to burn.
If you want to go on a killing spree, make more sites, optimize them, invest some money, and then eliminate them. For those who enjoy their sites, take care of them and never do the above.
