  • Lisa Brown: yes that will work, assuming you`ve cleaned up the hack that created these.
  • JL Faverio: yes we have. how long should I leave these URLs in the htaccess file?
  • Lisa Brown: indefinitely or til the URLs aren`t in the index, if you were alerted to the hack in GSC, and you submitted that you`d fixed the problem, it might not take too long.
