I asked this question once before and I didnt really get an answer, so I thought I would ask here and see what anyone here thinks.
On google webmaster tools there is a section called "URL Removals" . There are some pages of our site that are error pages that are being indexed by google. They were pages that had content on them at one point, but now they have nothing on them.
If I use this "URL Removal" tool to remove these pages, will it hurt the site? Meaning, is it better to just leaving google to index those pages, even though when you click on the link you get a "error 404"? I could go in a remove all these pages but there are quite a few.
Anyone have any thoughts??
