    What happens in practice with 410's?


    Recently i corrected an issue in the dispatcher of my website where 410's were returned for older uri's that i planned to 301 to the new name.

    As an example:

    /italy/nice-house/ would need to 301 to /search/italy/nice-house/

    My question is how google handles these kind of errors; is there a kind of try-again pattern provided? Or is the index updated immediatly (effectively removing these pages obviously....)

    I really can't say how fast Google will act on the 410 status code, but according to this article 410's are handled almost the same as 404' but with one minor little difference.

    a 404 status code causes Google to protect the page from de-indexing for 24 hours.. but a 410 gets no such protection ( how I interpreted the article)

    Bottom line always use the 404 unless you know for a fact, that it is gone, never coming back, no 301 redirect alternative.
