Removing Pages From Google: A Comprehensive Guide For Content Owners

Vanessa Fox (former Google Employee) has put together a guide for those of you who want pages removed from Google:
Quote:
As a site owner, you generally want Google to index as many pages of your site as possible. But there are certainly times when you find that youíve accidentally let Google index confidential content or other information you donít want published, and you want to get it removed as quickly as possible. Read on for all the details of how to get content you own, published on your own site, successfully removed from Googleís search results.

NOTE: Want to get information about you removed from Google from sites that you do not control? In some limited cases, this is possible. We have a separate guide for that situation: Removing Your Personal Information From Google.

if you don't want any confidential page of your website to be indexed in google, you can block that page url from your robots.txt file (i.e you can add disallow phrase before the url of page you do not want to index in google inside robots.txt file).

One should read this thread: Controlling crawling and indexing now documented on code.google.com .

Just putting instructions in the robots.txt file is no guarantee the page will not be indexed.

Great info on deindexing.

If you have trouble getting something deindexed, the next best bet is to try to get it buried. I've buried in tandem with the steps you list since even someone trying to find dirt on you or your site is not likely to search very deep in the SERPs.

Easier URL Removal for Site Owners

Google made some changes to the site removal process. Read the whole blog post to get the scoop.

Quote:
We recently made a change to the Remove URL tool in Webmaster Tools to eliminate the requirement that the webpage's URL must first be blocked by a site owner before the page can be removed from Google's search results. Because you've already verified ownership of the site, we can eliminate this requirement to make it easier for you, as the site owner, to remove unwanted pages (e.g. pages accidentally made public) from Google's search results

Removals persist for at least 90 days

When a pageís URL is requested for removal, the request is temporary...

I thought it was as easy as deleting the resource file and replacing it with a 410 error page.

Example:

http://heptagrama.com/en/musical-notes.htm

.htaccess declaration

Code:
redirect gone http://heptagrama.com/en/musical-notes.htm
Did I miss anything?

The 410 error also indicates that the Web server has no forwarding address for the URL, so can provide no redirection to the new Web server. This condition should generally be considered permanent. If the Web server does not know, or has no way of knowing, whether or not the condition is permanent, the status code 404 - Not found should be used instead.
HTTP Error 410 Gone

You could (possibly should) include a 301 permanent redirect to it's replacement or related page so you don't loose the PR and visitor.

If you go for the 404 error option, it is advisable to make a custom 404 error page c/w the navigation of the rest of your site. Why? So the visitor (and bots) have the opportunity to visit other pages on your site.

This is really useful, specially if you sell an info product and you want those pages or directory where the product is located not to be index by Google. A lot of webmasters made this mistake, they just upload their product not putting a robots.txt entries to not index that certain pages or directories, where the download is.
