Hello All,

I haven't used yet the Purge Expired post function but I can see currently (expired) job ads posted by an employer if I check their profile page. I would like to know what is this 'purge expired posts' exactly does. It erase the posts completely from the database? They will not be accessible at all (or users can still find them as they are indexed by Google)? Or if they can be found is it stated that they are expired? They will disappear from the search if I expire them? Does it give any relief to the database (and speed) if I purge the expired posts?

Thanks for your help in advance.  Wink

Purge expired posts means deleting all expired posts completely from DB and they will no longer be available in your db and  search engines ,
i personally dont recommend purging expired posts as they still drive traffic to your website from search engines UNLESS you have limited storage and you need free space

Thank you Amjad, that is clear now. It is indeed very bad for SEO to purge them. In this case my question is why do I still see the expired jobs listed under the employers profile? And is it stated somewhere on the ads that they are expired?

Yes. if you view one of the posts you will see that it states the post is expired. I went in and changed the color of the font to red so it was more evident that the posts are expired.

Probably I don't get them expired because of my broken Hourly cron job. Somehow they do not expire on my site.

I don't know if anyone noticed the terrible bug (or it's just in 3.5.7) that you lose all your stats when you purge expired jobs. These are real business killer bugs.
