How do I remove unwanted links from Google Search?

If you have unwanted links appearing in Google search results, there are a few steps you can take to try to remove them:

Try to remove the links manually: If the links are on a website that you own, you can try to remove the links from the website. If the links are on someone else’s website, you can try to contact the website owner and ask them to remove the links.

Use the “Disavow Links” tool: If you are unable to remove the links manually, you can use the “Disavow Links” tool in Google Search Console to tell Google to ignore the links. This can help protect your website from any negative effects of the unwanted links.

To use the “Disavow Links” tool, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Google Search Console dashboard and click on the “Disavow Links” tool under the “Security & Manual Actions” section.
  2. Click on the “Disavow Links” button.
  3. Select your website and click “Continue.”
  4. Upload a file containing the links that you want to disavow. You can either create this file manually or generate it using a backlink analysis tool.
  5. Submit the file and wait for Google to process it. This can take some time, so be patient.
