Archiving forum content

Hi everyone,

Do you archive your community content regularly, and if so, what criteria do you use?

We’re looking at archiving some older support content to keep the forums up-to-date and reduce overwhelm with so many search results but don’t want to archive any old content that is still useful (and hit our SEO). I’m thinking of basing archiving on anything > 3 years old with zero recent comments or even views.

Keen to hear what everyone else does.

Archiving is hard if you don’t want this to have an impact on SEO.

Sounds like the biggest problem is with the search functionality? If I were you I would see if it were possible to increase the ranking of ‘good’ or ‘recent’ answers/results and leave the other content there for long tail searches.
