I changed the publishing platform of a fairly large blog from Movable type to Wordpress.
Movable type paginated by using queries -
however Wordpress does the same by -
Based on this Google crawled thousands of pages using a combination of query strings -
So to get rid of the pages, I created a rule in htaccess which delivers a 404 for all pages with the query "page".
I can see a lot of crawl errors for these queries in my webmaster tools. Now I want to get these pages removed from Google's index.
So what should I do - mark them as fixed so Google crawl them again and eventually deletes them or
just ignore the errors and they will go automatically?
