#8. “rel=prev/next” is dead. What does that mean for SEO?
“rel=prev/next” was a way to tell the search engines if a particular page or article was part of a series or not. Google hasn’t support it for years now, but it forgot to mention it. You shouldn’t remove it from websites because Bing still supports it, and it doesn’t have any negative side effects.

Migrating to a new site is essential in rebranding and signaling a shift in your business. One of the hard questions you’ll face is which pages do I need to migrate to the new website and which pages don’t provide any values. Here are a few metrics that’ll help you decide:
- Page 1 Keywords
- Inbound Links (how many links point to this content)
- Conversions (how many sales occur as a result of people landing on this page)
