Remove a page hosted on your site from Google
For quick removals, use the Removals tool to remove a page hosted on your site from Google's search results within a day.
Protect or remove all variations of the URL for the content that you want to
remove. In many cases, different URLs can point to the same page. For example:
example.com/petchooser?pet=puppies. Learn how to find the right URL to block.
Make your removal permanent
Requests made in the Removals tool last for about 6 months. To permanently block a page from Google Search results, take one of the following actions:
- Remove or update the content on your page. This is the most secure way to prevent
your information from appearing in other search engines that might not respect the
noindextag. It also ensures that other people can't access your page.
- Password-protect your page. Limiting access to your page enables the right users to view your page, while preventing Googlebot and other web crawlers from accessing it.
- Add a
noindextag to your page. A
noindextag only blocks your page from showing up in Google search results. Users and other search engines that don't support
noindexcan still access your page.
