Will emptying smart search table affect seo?

Post by Bzz » Thu Jun 18, 2020 8:32 am

Hi guys,

i have a website with huge database in which the smart search index tables take around 3gb and the site is not using smart search at all (the search module is 3rd party one). My question is, if i empty the smart search db tables, will it effect my seo score for the site??

thanks!

If you aren't using Smart Search on the site then it's best to disable Smart Search in the back-end so your tables don't repopulate and grow large again.
