  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting us and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Those pages are now returning a 404 error which is an indication to Google that they should be de-indexed but that can take a couple of weeks before they started being removed from SERPs.

    Here’s an article about the removal of links from Google and how to do it permanently: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/9689846?hl=en

    ​​​​​​​Regarding the root cause of this, it’s likely that you had those pages set to index and active on your website at some point and Google indexed them back then.

    Hope this helps clarify your doubts.

    Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any other questions.

    Hi Miguel, Thank you for your reply.

    If I decide to follow your guide, and remove the links permanently, does that mean that if I make pages in the future with the same url/page titles, that they will never get indexed? In that case maybe it is better to wait for google to reindex them? Because I dont know if I will make these pages in the future.

    Could you please take a look at this example of how I would like my search results to look like: (example website: gaiafashion.co.uk)

    I do not like the way my webpage (decori.dk) is looking in search results with all these pages listed under the search result. MY webpage (decori.dk) search results:https://imgbb.com/HNf2t3R

    Is there any way I can get the clean looking search result, as the example webpage gaiafashion.co.uk? Without all the pages (deleted pages + existing pages) listed in the search results of decori.dk?

    Hello,

    If you want to restore a deleted page later at some point, you can use a slightly different URL and publish the same page. To avoid unexpected results, this might be the safest option.

    Knowledge panels are usually automatically generated, and information that appears in a knowledge panel comes from various sources across the web. https://support.google.com/knowledgepanel/answer/9163198

    You can influence this however by ensuring your site is eligible for Rich results, by testing your site here: https://search.google.com/test/rich-results. This will show the data added in Rank math > Titles & Meta > Local SEO (your logo, address, contact, business type, and even opening hours).

    Hope that answers your questions.
