Google Enables Site Owners To Temporarily Remove Pages From SERPs

Google makes advances towards cleaner and more relevant search results. Here's how you can remove pages from its index.

What: Google announced on Tuesday that they are launching a new version of the Removals report in Search Console, enabling site owners to temporarily hide a site from Google Search results (SERPs). The new report also includes information about Outdated Content and SafeSearch filtering, though there are other options to quickly remove content from Google.

Why: As well as cutting down manual work for SEOs, making them aware which of their content was removed or should be removed without figuring it out themselves, the new update should help to improve the relevance of search results for users. As well as saving them time as digital marketers, it ensures they are providing quality content for those searching on Google and a better, more defined user experience.

The result: The updated Removals report will allow users to temporarily remove a site from the results page for up to 6 months, whether that be because the URL is no longer relevant, the results shows information that is no longer present on a page, or because they have been reported by Google users as adult content. Though this tool shouldn’t be used sparingly, it will still make for a cleaner results page. Failing that, the second type of removal involves clearing the cashed URL and wiping out the page description snippet until the page is crawled again.

Slash the time it takes to run more profitable paid ad campaigns.
