What to do with random pages after a 301 redirect?
Currently, we are working on modifying the contents of a website of one of our products.
Since we are re-positioning the product, we would like to delete roughly 50% (around 200) of the pages of the website.
My questions, in terms of SEO are:
- Would it have a negative effect if Google suddenly sees the large page drop?
- Is it OK to provide a 301 to the start page of the website for all removed pages?
