What is Deindexing?

Deindexing is the practice of removing content from search engine result pages. The blogger or search engine may initiate the deindexing. 

  • A blogger can deindex content they don’t want on search engine result pages. 
  • Search engines generally deindex content that engages in activities that go against their guidelines. 

When a search engine deindexes a webpage, the page will no longer be available in search results. However, visitors can still find it by heading to the affected website.

When a blogger deindexes a webpage, the webpage will be removed from search engines that obey the noindex meta tag. 

You can set a webpage to index by adding the no index meta tag, as shown below. 

<meta name="robots" content="noindex">
