      Well it depends on the site. If the site is a popular one and had good links to it. Then it will get the things done pretty quickly.

    You have any link on this page. You have to delete them or making redirect from its, so you will not lose link rate of 404 page

        If that page had any rate before, such as external inlinks, so page will lost it, if become 404. So, better to make 301 redirect to main page or similliar page.

    The most essential SEO feature of all time. Google must index your site in order for your site get any organic traffic from Google. If your site isn't indexed, you are lost. No one will find your content organically, because it's not part of Google's search index.

    HelloYour site is indexed under a www non-www domain
    Technically www is a subdomain. Thus, http://example.com is not the same as http://www.example.com. Make sure you add both sites to your GWT account to ensure they are both indexed. Be sure to set your preferred domain, but verify ownership of both.

    Google hasn't found your site yet
    This is usually a problem with new sites. Give it a few days (at least), but if Google still hasn't indexed your site, make sure your sitemap is uploaded and working properly. If you haven't created or submitted a sitemap, this could be your problem. You should also request Google crawl and fetch your site. Here is Google's instructions on how to do that:

    On the Webmaster Tools Home page, click the site you want.
    On the Dashboard, under Crawl, click Fetch as Google.
    In the text box, type the path to the page you want to check.
    In the dropdown list, select Desktop. (You can select another type of page, but currently we only accept submissions for our Web Search index.)
    Click Fetch. Google will fetch the URL you requested. It may take up to 10 or 15 minutes for Fetch status to be updated.
    Once you see a Fetch status of "Successful", click Submit to Index, and then click one of the following:
    To submit the individual URL to Google's index, select URL and click Submit. You can submit up to 500 URLs a week in this way.
    To submit the URL and all pages linked from it, click URL and all linked pages. You can submit up to 10 of these requests a month

    Deleted pages remain in Google index for some time, that`s normal. What you should do is to make sure you have updated everything accordingly, and the URL is removed from your sitemap and is completely unlinked from any other pages of your website, otherwise you get a broken link. If everything is neat - the page will disappear from index naturally at some point.

    Wait for a month because some time it takes time. When Google bot came to your site and crawl all the pages and update its indexing. So you have to wait maximum 1 month some time to ensure the complete crawling and indexing.

    Hi Maddy5,

    I suggest you setup a Permanent 301 redirect for the old URL and have it point at the most relevant new page, or point to the homepage of your website if there is no more relevant page.

    Generally you should not let previously valid URLs become invalid 404 error pages. That can be very bad for your SEO efforts. Instead setup a Permanent 301 redirect to another page on your website. Google will eventually remove the old URL and in the mean time traffic is not lost, previous backlinks are not lost, they are merely redirected to a new page.

    Do you people really read what you write? Do you know what you are writing? Are any of you actual experts at ANYTHING online dealing with websites and google?!?!?!

    You have so many idiotic and contradictory answers above, it's pathetic.

    (That should be my sig)

    And as far as the OP goes, I can't fathom what the worry is about.

    The page does not exist anymore. So what's the big deal?

    Getting into a snit fit over something so trivial is beyond the norm.

    Two scenarios:

    1) That page is not important. Then who gives a rat's behind?

    2) The page is important. Then why did you obliterate it?

    If you don't have a custom 404, then get one.

    Here's a newsflash: The internet is not perfect.

    Paul

    Just 301 redirect the 404 to another page/URL on the same domain.

    Problem solved.
