What is 410 Gone?
410 Gone - a phrase that denotes an HTTP status code indicating that the requested resource is no longer available and will not be available again. This may occur due to a website redesign, content removal, or any other reason.
The use of this status code helps search engines remove the outdated pages from their index and direct users to relevant content. It also informs web developers to update their links and avoid wasting time trying to access unavailable resources.
The 410 Gone status code differs from the 404 Not Found, which indicates that the server could not find the requested resource but does not confirm whether it has permanently gone or temporarily moved.
