If your website has a lot of low quality page:
- your SEO score will be lower
- you can even get at worse the thin_content_with_little_or_no_added_value penalty and be deleted from the search engine index.
Thin content with little or no added value
The Thin content with little or no added value is explained in the webmaster documentation
If you are going to the Google Search Console, you would see the following alert.
This site appears to contain a significant percentage of low-quality or shallow pages that do not provide users with much added value (such as thin affiliate pages, cookie-cutter sites, doorway pages, automatically generated content or copied content).
The effect is that:
- Your website is deleted from the Search Engine Index
- Your website will then be no more discoverable
- and your visits will plunge.
We have created a low page demo to show you the protection in action.
This protection is disabled by default. If you want to enable it, you need to check the lowQualityPageProtectionEnable checkbox configuration.
A protection becomes active for a page when it was analyzed.
The possible values are:
|A normal link (default) shows less emphasis (not underlined) and add the LQPP suffix (Low Quality Page Protection) on the default title link tooltip making it visible for the editor.
|A warning link shows a tooltip with a warning making it more visible to the reader
|A login link shows a tooltip requiring the user to login to make the link clickable. If the user is signed in, this is a normal link.
The link does not appear as a low-quality page-protected link
