After Deletion of URL - Which is bettar 301 redirect or Error 404 Message.
I mostly things know about 301 Redirection but there is still confusion in my mind. I will be very thankful to you if clear this doubt.
I saw two URLs in my site having same content. I checked in Google analytics and remove one URL which having almost negligible traffic near to 20-30 in 2 years and others in Thousands so I decided to remove less traffic URL.
So, Please tell what is the best SEO Technique after DELETION of Duplicate URL should I remain this Url as ERROR 404 Message for Google that Google should know that this Page doesn't exist or setup a Permanent 301 redirection on right WEB PAGE.
If I show the ERROR 404 Message to Google . Is it perfectly Fine or Redirection on main page is bettar.
Please Folks, give the reply with your practical knowledge.
