What do you do with a directory that has incoming links, when you do not need the directory anymore?
I have submitted to webmaster tools, and told google to de-index. I have redirected the directory, and sub pages to another website. I have tried to get the incoming changed, but as yet most of websites in question are not interested - there is 130 links according to google webmaster tools (but probably a lot more).
Is Google going to penalise my website for having links coming in to pages that I do not want anymore?
Any advice would be great.
