How could I create an archive of discontinued products?

We sell collectible items that generally sell out quickly but we like to keep those items in an area of the store for both archival and SEO purposes.

Ideally these items would not appear is search results.

Any ideas on a way to pull this off?

Could you create a category called “Discontinued Items”, move all appropriate products to that category and set the visibility for each of those products from “Catalog, Search” to “Catalog”? This way all your discontinued items will be in one place and won’t show up in the search results.

Ah, good call. Thanks for the idea (specifically the Catalog/Search bit).
