Hi @Gegè ,

Regarding whether or not those pages will be automatically removed from Google's index. 

 

Then the answer is yes, Google will eventually remove pages that consistently return a 404 error from its index. However, this process can take some time, and it's generally recommended that you manually remove any pages you want to take down as soon as possible using Google Search Console's removal tool. This can help speed up the process and ensure that the pages are removed from search results more quickly.

 

It's also worth noting that simply returning a 404 error doesn't necessarily mean that Google will remove a page from its index. If the page has valuable content or relevant links, Google may still keep it in its index even if it returns a 404 error. In general, it's best to only remove pages from Google's index if you're sure they're no longer needed or if they're causing issues for your site.

 

Hope the answer is helpful for you. Let me know if you have any questions!
