    Old Page STILL indexed
    How do I get old pages out of SE indexes? I have a boat load of old pages indexed for old sites. I am looking to retool the sites but SEs are still driving traffic to my old deleted pages.

    I was thinking making a redirect from my custom 404 to the index.html. Is that ok to do?

    TIA

    in google's case you can hunt around in there for a page where you can tell them a certain page or site is long gone.

    i think it is part of the page: google.com/addurl but not sure

    if you still own the addy's maybe a 301 redirect would work?

    Sure. A 301 won't hurt you.

    301 is the way to do it.

    301 is right. If G concerns you, throw in G sitemaps and you're doubly covered.
