To elaborate it a bit more, content freshness is more related to content relevancy rather than mindless change of copy of web pages. It can be pretty difficult to digest the fact that you can make your web site fresh without altering its existing content all the time.
Changing your content drastically may misfire
Mind your moves if you are going for a massive content revamp. It is not at all about benefiting your webpages with regard to rankings, but of course, it is strewn with risk. If you wish to undertake content revamp on a large scale -- but in search engine friendly way -- it has to happen over a stable period of time.
