Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
and then it will link to a 404 page
So I am wondering if it would hurt anything to redirect those bad page to Google search that will show them the new pages.. This way so it doesnt pass the bad juice to the page but might still send the visitor back to me?

[edit reason] fixed typo at poster request [/edit]
404 is treated the same as 410 and that Google (Was it John Muller?) even confirmed this
This sounds like another case of google's left hand not knowing what google's right hand is doing.
