Old dated content
What to do with the old dated content

 1:06 pm on Jul 30, 2006 (gmt 0)


i have a sports picks website with free soccer tips.

As you know soccer fixture change every week so i write new tips every week.

my question is about the old tips i wrote. Do i have to remove them from my website or store as archive?

which is better for SEO?

If the tips are "evergreen"--useful information for someone six months from now, or six years from now, I would definitely archive them.

If you set up your archive properly, and publicize it, you will get links to it, and traffic to it.

Also ensure you have user-friendly site navigation, so someone finding an old page will easily be able to move to a more relevant up-to-date one.

There's always some-one, somehwere looking for 'old news' - and it shows you have been putting in the work for a while.

The only alrm bell would be if the pages are very small and have been having duplicate content issues.

In that case, it might be worth finding a way of archiving that merges several small pages.

EG for soccer, if you've been having a page per match, it might be worth consolidating to one page per division (about ten matches) - unless that created oodles of xtra work.

From the SEO point of view archiving old information is the best way out
