URL looks like that,

i want to remove pages from domain.com/stores/1 to domain.com/stores/1600

But how i remove all 1600 pages without removing stores directory?


one other problem with my index pages.

when i search site:collectioncoupons.com google show 20pages. when i search site:collectioncoupons.com/out then google show 300 pages that in "out" directory and same with other directories.

You can tell Google to allow the /store directory, but not /store/???. For example, in your robots.txt file:

User-agent: Googlebot
Allow: /store$
Allow: /store/$
Disallow: /store/

This tells Googlebot that /store and /store/ are allowed. The $ at the end means, "end of url." But if you have /store/1 or /store/ followed by anything else, then disallow it.

I don't know the answers to your other questions. Perhaps there are alternate URLs to your pages, or URLs that have query string parameters. You have the search results, why not look at the URLs that Google is reporting and see how the URLs differ?
