In this post, we are going to talk about how to remove content from Google.
We make posts on the website so that it reaches as many people as possible. And to reach more and more people, it is very important to rank on Google.
Google is currently the largest search engine in the world. Therefore, the rank of any post on Google helps in increasing traffic.
But do you know that there are some reasons due to which a website owner does not want his post to be ranked on Google?
This means that he does not even want to delete that post from his website nor does he want to allow that post to rank. It sounds strange to read, doesn’t it?
After all, we write the post so that it can rank on Google, so why would we want that it should not rank?
In this post, we will know that how we can delete our content from Google or prevent it from being ranked, but before that let us know the reasons why no one will allow their content to be ranked on Google?
By the way, did you read about the Google Algorithm? Please do read.
Reasons to remove content from Google
1. Leaked Information –
Many times it happens that you create a post for your new product or service and it starts ranking on Google before time.
That is if that information is leaked ahead of time, then in such a situation, it becomes very important to remove it from Google search.
2. Deleted Page –
When you write a post and later it has to be deleted for some reason (some information is posted by mistake), sometimes even after it is deleted, it continues to rank on Google.
Therefore, it is wise to remove it from Google search as soon as possible.
3. Updated Information –
Do you know that we should keep updating our website posts from time to time? But sometimes it happens that we update our post but only the old content is ranking on google.
Therefore, even in such a situation, that ranked post should be removed from Google.
So, these were some of the main reasons due to which the post has to be deleted from google search.
Now next we will know how we can delete our post from Google.
How to Remove Content from Google
Now we will know how we can remove our content or post from Google. If you are thinking that we will use any paid tool for this then you are wrong. Let me tell you that this tool by which we will remove our content from Google is absolutely free.
This tool belongs to Google itself and the name of this tool is Google Search Console. Yes, you must have heard the name of Google Search Console before, but do you know that with the help of this you can remove your post from Google?
So without any delay let’s know how we can remove our post from google search results using the Google Search Console.
If you want to remove the indexed URL of your website from Google, then first go to the Google Search Console (GSC).
Here you will see the “Removals” option inside the “Index” section, click on it.
Now you will see a red button on which “NEW REQUEST” will be written, click on it.
Now enter the URL of the page of your website which you want to remove from the Google Search Result Page (SERP) and click on “Next“.
After this, after clicking on “Next“, click on “SUBMIT REQUEST” and this page of yours will be temporarily deleted (for about 6 months).
So as you have seen how easily we removed our indexed page from being ranked on Google. Hope you got to learn something new from this.
