Came across a question to which my answer was not convincing. Can you help. Here is the question:
A content website is reviewing its old articles and relevant terms are getting hyperlinked to articles most of them got published much after the old one.
Will this harm seo. Primarily the objective is giving links to more recent articles from old ones, trying to benefit the user, but also assuming that this can play a role in seo.
The question is, will this benefit in seo or harm.

No, I think it would not harm it for seo.
