Title: What will be the best option?
Post by: aarti on 10-22-2015, 04:38:02
Hi Guys,

I have a query and need your help!!!

I am doing SEO for a client and the project is very large, millions of pages, a kind of local directory. Prior the client was giving information of 40 cities but now has restricted to 9 indian cities.

I am little confused that what should I do?

Should I place the inactive cities in robots.txt and let the google index it? Or should I delete it from server and request for url removal through search console??

Please suggest. Thanks in advance :)

I would like to suggest you that just redirect that 12 cities to nearly city of user search
You can redirect using 301 redirection.

Hope this help you  !-!

Redirect is best option if you want that all pages drive any important page then to do redirection on that pages.
