How to remove old listing from Google Search Console ?

To remove an old listing from Google Search Console, you can use the Removals tool. This tool allows you to temporarily block a URL from appearing in Google Search results. To use the Removals tool, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Removals tool in Google Search Console.
  2. Select theandnbsp;Temporary Removalsandnbsp;tab.
  3. Clickandnbsp;New Request.
  4. Enter the URL of the page you want to remove from Google Search results.
  5. Selectandnbsp;Next.
  6. Review your request and clickandnbsp;Submit.
Google will process your request and usually remove the page from Google Search results within a day. However, it is important to note that the Removals tool only provides a temporary removal. If the page is still live on your website, Google will eventually re-index it and it will appear in search results again. To permanently remove a page from Google Search results, you need to take one of the following actions:
  • Remove the page from your website.
  • Block access to the page,andnbsp;for example by requiring a password.
  • Set a 404 (Not Found) or 410 (Gone) HTTP status code for the page.
Once you have taken one of these actions, you can submit a removal request to Google. Google will then remove the page from its index and it will no longer appear in search results. Please note that Google does not remove all pages from its index, even if you request a removal. Google will only remove pages that meet certain criteria, such as pages that contain sensitive personal information or pages that are no longer relevant.
