How to Deindex Pages from Google

Site Search 360

The purpose of the “dev” site was to act as a live duplicate of the original site so that my team could test different plugins on this cloned site instead of toying with the main website or relying on a local version.As is standard practice, I made sure to check the mystical Search Engine Visibility box in WordPress under Settings > Reading > Discourage search engines from indexing this site. There is a small disclaimer under this box that says, “It is up to search engines to honor this request.” And, that’s where the trouble began.This disclaimer is why I originally needed to learn how to deindex pages from Google.How to Deindex a Site from GoogleI’m not a rookie when it comes to SEO.

In recent weeks, the Google Feed has tested topic bubbles with a redesign that results in a ton of empty space, while some users have begun to see ads. Neither of those updates have widely rolled out, but this evening the Google app is introducing new dedicated topic pages.
