    Delete 301 redirect pages from unpublished site, by Gone South


    I have switched from http: to https: BEFORE the new site is taken Live. The https: pages are an entire second set, with the legacy http: pages redirected by 301. These old http: pages have no inbound links, so there’s no reason to keep them.

    They also seem to leave double the number of internal links in my internal audit. Some pages have 200+ internal links because the audit reads my menu structure twice, once from http: and once from https: Google might penalize the site for internal link overkill.

    I can’t find any reference on how to delete 301 pages. All the advice is DON’T DO IT! … but that’s good advice for PUBLISHED pages.

    The Trash Duplicates plugin can’t see much at all… none of the 301s.

    I took a look at the htaccess file, but it’s super short and I can’t see any references in there.

    Any help on how to sweep out these old http: pages will be much appreciated.
