When you need to change URLs or SEF URLs on your page or remove your content, most people remove the old URL to handle the job. The problem is that at some point, Google and other search engines have already indexed that URL. When search engines realize that your indexed URL leads to a 404 error, it penalizes your organic rankings, which can severely hinder your rankings. To help solve this problem, it is crucial that you implement 301 redirects on your website.
