Title: Error 404 Fixing
Post by: [Not Shown, Login to View] on May 16, 2018
I have deleted some of my post that no longer fit my site. Yet Google bot still crawl them and gives me error 404.

How do I permanently delete them so that Google will stop crawling them and also remove them from their index file?

Please, somebody should guide me. Thanks

How we normally deal with this issue is to install a plugin that redirects any 404 error page to the homepage. That way we stopped getting crawl errors.

The plugin we use is here => https://wordpress.org/plugins/all-404-redirect-to-homepage/
