410 gone for deleted things

  1. marisol3007

    Why is "410 gone" not the standard answer after clients ask for deleted things?
    (applies to sites, blogs, products, ...anything)

    The 410-plugin by Samir Shah is a beginning, but this could be fully automated in WP-core. Search engines get confused, if getting premature 404 "not found" answers, despite new sitemap.

  2. Plugins can do this. Not everyone wants to use a 410. Some people want to redirect, some people want other things. It's difficult to be all things for all people :)
