How to manage 'unmanageably' high volumes of website content? Ignore most of it.
I bet you want to know what content your website users are most interested in. Right?
Of course, you do. Me too.
If your situation is anything like mine, you likely have very little time to spend on useful things—like making your content easier to find, read and understand. So, when you do get this time, you want to make sure you're prioritising the right content.
