Link decay means that search engine eliminate content over short time when content is needless. In some of the blog sites, where the post goes to records they eliminate the content or modify the URL of the post to fit in records.

Link decay is a term dedicated to the phenomenon of a link’s fading interest or disappearing of links with time.
With time, a link will start experiencing lesser clicks as users start losing interest in the topic.
As new trends start pouring in, webpages start disappearing from the web as a result of link decay.

Link decay sounds like a new concept to most webmasters, but in fact it's an old one, and has been part of the Page Rank algorithm for a long time now. The easiest way to explain so anyone can understand is that the number of links you have is reducing with passing time, or losing value.
