Googlebot Errors in CPanel and Site Maintenance Posted April 5, 2007 · Edited April 5, 2007 by Deverill If I am understanding right, these pages are no longer there and have returned to their original place in public_html? As Google scans your site, it will find the pages where they are and it will see the ones that are no longer there and drop them after a few crawls so if your only concern is to make the links in Google to the Web Pages folder disappear it will happen by itself and probably can't be "hurried up" since Google works at Google-speed. If you have a good placement in Google for the pages in the Web Pages folder then you would want to do the permanent redirect from Cpanel or .htaccess so that placement will carry over to the public_html pages. If the public_html pages are ranking well on their own, especially if it's a young site, then the benefit of the redirect will be minimal. Edit (added): By the way, don't create "fake" pages -- either redirect or let Google sort it out and drop them. While I'm at it, insert standard disclaimer here that Google's not the only game in town. Don't neglect the other popular search engines people use because they are using portals such as AOL, MSN, etc.
