In its essence, thin content is defined as content that offers little to no value to the user. This could be anything from pages with very small amounts of text, computer-generated content, duplicate pages, copied pages, low-quality affiliate pages or doorway pages.

The most common strategies when dealing with thin content are:

  • remove it
  • set the value of the robots meta tag to noindex
  • update it with meaningful relevant content
  • redirect it using a 301 HTTP status code
