As content fluctuates on our site, we will obviously add the titles to the new pages to our sitemap, and link list for search engine indexing.
Through time, certain links will become less relevant, and would like to know how to avoid them being crawled. The links themselves may not be removed - but we don't want to dilute the link list with less relevant links as time passes.
I'm guessing the status code of the page would change - to what? Should they also removed from the sitemap?
