    So I bought a domain that has about 100 pages indexed in Google. Is there a way I can redirect all of these pages to the main domain other than going through by hand and adding them to .htaccess?

    If the pages were under a subfolder you could set a 301 redirect for the whole folder so that the spiders will get a 301 redirect for any pages under that folder.

    If the pages aren't there anymore just add this to your .htaccess file:

    ErrorDocument 404 /

    Hope this helps!
