Google Search Console New Removal Tools

Google can bring you back 100,000 answers. A librarian can bring you back the right one.

Hello and welcome to JioTorrent Blog Google Search Console New Removal Tools.

On January 28 2020 Google has launched a new removals tool within Google Search Console.

This tool does three things

1. lets you temporarily hide URLs from showing in Google search,

A temporary removal request is a way to remove specific content on your site from Google Search results. For example, if you have a URL that you need to take off Google Search quickly, you should use this tool. A successful request lasts about six months, which should be enough for you to find a permanent solution.

You have two types of requests available:

Temporary remove URL will hide the URL from Google Search results for about six months and clear the cached copy of the page.

Clear cache URL clears the cached page and wipes out the page description snippet in Search results until the page is crawled again.

2. show you which content is not in Google because it is “outdated content”

The outdated content section provides information on removal requests made through the public Remove Outdated Content tool, which can be used by anyone (not just site owners) to update search results showing information that is no longer present on a page.

3. shows you which of your URLs were filtered by Google’s SafeSearch adult filter.

The SafeSearch filtering section in Search Console shows a history of pages on your site that were reported by Google users as adult content using the SafeSearch Suggestion tool.

URLs submitted using this tool are reviewed, and if Google feels that this content should be filtered from SafeSearch results, these URLs are tagged as adult content.
