How to Speed up the Deindexing of Posts or Pages

How to Speed up the Deindexing of Posts or Pages - Clevious
If you tried to deindex a page or a post from search engines and you just applied the tricks I shared in the article “How to Deindex a Post or a Page”, you may also want to search for a way to make the pages disappear as soon as possible rather than waiting for a long time just to see the intended effects.

Rest assured that by properly applying what you have read in the article above, pages will disappear next time when search engines revisit your pages and find that the HTML tags are present.

The method I’m going to share with you here is for either temporary removing posts or pages from Google search engine or a complementary method to what you have read in the article “How to Deindex a Post or a Page” for the purpose of speeding up the permanent deindexing of those posts or pages.

Step 1: Add a Meta tag to the Posts or Pages


Just like explained in the article “How to Deindex a Post or a Page”, you should first add the meta tag that will tell search engines to not index the post or the page that you want to be permanently deindexed from search engines.

For more details, read the article above before continuing to read this guide.

Step 2: Join Google Webmaster Tool


Just like the trick of speeding up the indexing of pages, deindexing pages also requires from you to have an account on Google Webmaster Tools so that you can use a special tool for that purpose.

If you do not have an account yet, sign up for it, and then follow the instructions given by the search console until you have successfully signed up.

In the next step, you will discover how to speed up the deindexing of those posts or pages you want to be deindexed from Google search engine.

Step 3: Use the Remove URLs Tool


While you are searching for all the indexed pages like explained in “How to Check if your Website has been Indexed”; Note all the pages you want to be deindexed by copying their URLs and saving them into a notepad file.

You will next delete your website main URL from the URLs and keep only the path just like in the following example:

Before: https://www.clevious.com/2017/12/
After: 2017/12/

After that, open up the search console and navigate to Google Index then Remove URLs.

Click on temporary Hide, Add the path, and click Continue, then Submit Request.

By doing this to all of the URLs, a few hours later, you will notice that the intended posts or pages have successfully disappeared from Google.
