What is removals in Google Search Console?

In Google Search Console, the “Removals” tool allows you to request the removal of specific URLs from Google’s search results. This can be useful if you have pages on your website that you no longer want to be indexed by Google, or if you have pages that contain sensitive or confidential information that you do not want to be publicly accessible.

To use the “Removals” tool, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Google Search Console dashboard and click on the “Removals” tool under the “Security & Manual Actions” section.
  2. Click on the “Temporary Removals” tab.
  3. Click on the “New Request” button.
  4. Enter the URL of the page that you want to remove. You can also specify the duration for which you want the page to be removed (e.g., 1 day, 7 days, or 30 days).
  5. Click “Submit.”

Keep in mind that requesting the removal of a URL from Google’s search results does not guarantee that the URL will be removed. Google will review the request and determine whether to remove the URL based on a number of factors, such as the relevance and quality of the content on the page.
