there are roughly 50-60 old pages which are deleted from my website www.lifeintheuktest.co and are in google index e.g. the following page http://www.lifeintheuktest.co/lifeintheuktest/archive.aspx

These pages when clicked through the search results return 404 error. I want to redirect from these pages to defualt.aspx and also want to remove them from google index. how can I redirect the missing pages to default.aspx

You could just set a custom 404 page for the site that has a meta refresh tag in it ...

In your new 404 page just put a line like...

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://www.lifeintheuktest.co/default.aspx">

Hi,

Try this in web.config

<configuration>
    <system.web>
         <customErrors defaultRedirect="error.aspx" mode="On" />
    </system.web>
</configuration>

Please see my web.config but for some reason its still not redirecting as you can see from the pages e.g.

http://www.lifeintheuktest.co/lifeintheuktest/?tag=/ESOL
http://www.lifeintheuktest.co/lifeintheuktest/2011/12/default.aspx

This happens because the user is not authenticated and u have

<system.web>
      <authorization>
            <allow users="user" />
            <deny users="*" />
      </authorization>
</system.web>
<authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms path="/" loginUrl="~/Login.aspx" protection="All" timeout="5" />
</authentication>

which is required for user authentication....
