    The page will first need to be unindexed. You can either wait it out or request that it be removed.

    I had to do this when I got spam to one of my pages. I removed the page and shortly after those bad links disappeared from GWT. So the links are gone.

    Sounds like you have your answer then bud ;)

    If it's not indexed the backlinks are gone.

    If you have too many 404 reports, that will give Google the wrong picture.

    hello mate, need a simple clarification about the op's question?

    can we use canonical tag to convert or transform those links value to some other new post.

    like if one page shows 404. can we use canonical tag by adding or creating that same post with dummy or duplicate content of some newly created and indexed post?

    like after the next crawl google will thought that old post is new?

    Hey, Thanks to all answeres!
    I already removed the page, and seems like ahrefs is saying that i have broken backlinks, because that inbound backlinks are going to a 404 page, which is not indexed anymore, what should i do? I'm safe or this is a big problem? I dont want that spammy links juice.
