Remove a page hosted on your site from Google

For quick removals, use the Remove URLs tool to remove a page hosted on your site from Google's search results within a day.

Make your removal permanent

Requests made in the Remove URLs 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 noindex tag. 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 noindex tag to your page. A noindex tag only blocks your page from showing up in Google search results. Users and other search engines that don't support noindex can still access your page.
