Deleting a webpage – 404s and that

Had to do this today, would have helped to have a bit of a process written down…

  • Check if page ranks for anything
  • if it does, then consider redirecting (301ing) to most relevant/related page (in regards to what it ranks for)
  • 410 is better than 404 according to Yoast – for a deleted page
  • Remove internal links from page copy etc and menus (crawl site if poss)
