    Why Old URLs still crawling in google webmaster tools


    Hello,

    I have removed old all the URL and create new URL for website.

    I have given all 404 URLs to 410 response code.

    I have also given all 410 URL's to noindex, nofollow, but when I check in google webmaster tools
    in crawl report the URLs is still coming in crawl report.

    I don't how to remove all 410 URLs from crawl report.

    Let me know if any one knows.

    Thanks

    If you have kept your pages content on another URL why don't you 301 redirect the old URLs? This coupled with a correct canonical tag on the final page (the new URL) should do the trick, but crawling won't stop instantly.

    Question: Have you modified the sitemap you submitted to Google?

    I believe what Pierre is asking is about the OLD Urls... on these old ones (that are still showing in Google), have you moved the content of these pages to new URLs? If so, it's best to setup 301 redirects on the old URLs to point to the new URLs.

    There shouldn't be a need to redirect an old sitemap that has bad information to a new one, simply remove the old sitemap and uploads the new one with the correct URLs.
