  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and bringing your concern to our attention. I’m sorry for any inconvenience this issue may have caused you.

    Yes, you can bulk redirect those URLs using Rank Math to the 410 content deleted option. Here’s a link for more information:

    Also, please note that if those URLs are already showing on the search results, it will take some time for search engines to remove them from the search results page if they are already indexed.

    In case you wanted important/specific links to be removed immediately, you can use the page removal tool in your Google Search Console account

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you.

    Hello, I already did the steps and unfortunately, it is not working
    I’m trying to set any URLs that contain /feed/ to 410 as google indexing them
    Also, I tried this code in .htaccess RewriteRule ^/feed(/.*)?$ – [G,NC] and it didn’t work

    Hello,

    Feed URLs are not created for humans, but for RSS feed crawlers and readers. They are only basic code versions of your actual content pages.

    You do not want these pages to be indexed as Google doesn’t like them and would most not likely not show them to users anyways.

    In this case, please add this rule to your robots.txt to disallow them:

    User-Agent: *
    Disallow: */feed/
    

    And here’s a guide on how to edit your robots.txt using Rank Math:

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you.

    Hello, thank you for your reply
    I already added it then Google listed them under Indexed, though blocked by robots.txt warning
    I can’t find any information on what will happen next, Will google deindexes them?
    I saw a boost in impressions after a month, but will this warning affect SEO negatively?

    Hello,

    Yes, Google will likely deindex these types of pages and if you are still seeing the error report from Google Search Console, you may ignore it.

    These types of warnings will not affect the overall SEO performance of your website.

    Hope this helps you with your concern.

    Thank you.

    Thank you very much
