    Default Is There A Way To Get Google To Unindex Pages?

    I had a site which I had my programmer no follow no index pages while it was in index.php mode and he forgot to do so so pages were indexed as site.com/product.index.php and site.com/product. So I have all kinds of dup content and need to get rid of it. After the pages are already indexed I don't think the no follow/no index matters.

    Do I have to manually 301 redirect each page I don't want indexed and eventually google will unindex it?

    You can do that by adding the site to Google Webmaster Tools... and submitting a de-index request.

    But this will work for specific pages and not the whole domain?

    the canonical tag should help with that issue.

    I think there's an option to choose from whole domain and a specific URL.... I could be wrong though as I haven't used GWT in a while.

    De-indexing through Google's Webmaster Tools might take a while. Making the pages return HTTP 404 could be faster.

    You could either do a permanent redirect to the website as you said or make the site you want to remove return a 404 error.

    Greetings
