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?

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"><!-- Hide Script
window.location.href="http://www.gohere.com"
