How do I delete urls from search engines? I have pages I want to delete completely  from my web site and from the various search engines  that they have been registered with.  I can delete the pages but I don't want visitors to get "file not found" messages.  Is the answer to use the robots/noindex meta tag and wait (how long?) for it to take effect?

you can always place a redirection tag in the page that you want to change and tell everyone that you ar moving.. Please update your bookmarks...


<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"><!-- Hide Script
window.location.href="http://www.gohere.com"
// Done hiding -->
</SCRIPT>
We are moving.  Please update your browser bookmarks...  Click <A HREf="http://www.gohere.com">here</A> to go to our new page if you are not automatically moved there.
