in our store (clothing) thousands of 404 error pages/blank URLs have accumulated over the years. These are - as expected - mainly filter pages and URLs of no longer existing products.
My question is: how do I get these URLs out of the search results? Probably, the best way to solve the filter page problem is to use robots-meta-tag.
But what about the old product URLs respectively pages with the products removed from the range - setting 10 000 such pages to "noindex" or redirect them to the home page manually / by hand?
Since it would be a task of weeks or months - perhaps there are other alternatives/ways...
Thx and kind regards.
Thanks for your response.
The thing is: I want to remove the sites with the old products permanently, not only for some months ("block URL for about six moths").
Another solution could be: 301-redirects to homepage, what do mean?
