The Archive Later module, and like it, helps in archiving content items. So the question now is: What are the benefits of archiving content items? and what really happens to items after they archived?

I know my question may look dummy, but I think it's important to consider especially for heavy data apps.

It puts them in a state where they can't be viewed by users, but they can be brought back later if necessary.

Great, so is this helps in search indexing? are archived items out of search and index scope and background maintenance processing?

They should be out of the search index, yes.
