Use Google Analytics to jettison the underperforming or completely unused content that’s bogging down your site.
After a site audit, what actions does your team take to revamp a website?
Critical fixes, sure. Security updates, given. Now what? Re-theme and call it a day? Hold your horses.

Identifying pages with poor user experience
Attracting a larger audience by tailoring content that capitalizes on trends
