My WordPress site tracks distracted driving legislation. It does well in the serps (but makes squat).
The format is built around "state" sections, one for each, plus Canada, etc.
These are WP posts dating back 5 years. They are updated frequently.
The "new" news is up top, along with lists of current legislation. With a new year, older years are pushed down.
These "state" posts are quite long now, especially considering the many reader comments. Live URL Removed
I am redesigning and want to break up these posts -- example.com/florida for the most recent two years, and then example.com/florida1 (older) and example.com/florida2 (oldest).
Assuming this is a good idea:
- Should the older ones be posts or pages ... or whatever? (Don't want new comments in the archive.)
- Should I block the search engines from these archive posts? (I worry about a lot of my content becoming invisible to them overnight.)
- Is it worth moving the comments?
