---- Remove Unwanted Index Entries (with 301 re-direct)

Google loves to keep 404 and forwarded pages for ages. I know I'm losing money because the deleted page shows on the indent, and sometimes people pick that one...only to be surprised by the 404.html page. Average Joe is not going to know what "supplemental" means.
I ended up recreating the 404 pages and redirecting them to similar pages to avoid this. A pain if you have lots of pages, but at least users get something when they click on the link.
