How to Find and Remove Bad URLs from Google to Increase Rankings :-
In my previous post I talked about how you can Search Engine Optimize your Robots.txt file to make Search Engine bots crawl and index your site as you want.Today I will show you guys How to Find and Remove Bad URLs from Google to Increase Rankings of your site on Search Engines.In my previous post I showed you how to stop Google from indexing wp-admin and all those personal areas but as earlier you guys might have not Search Engine Optimize your Robots.txt file and which might have resulted in indexing of wp-admin files and other unwanted files which are considered as bad links.So in this post I will show you guys how to find and remove such bad links from Google using Google Webmaster Tools.So let get started…
Note :- First Read this Post and Search Engine Optimize your Robots.txt file before removing Bad Links as such links will keep on creating again and again unless and until your Robots.txt is optimized and stopping such URL’s from being created.
1)First of all go to Google.com and in search box just type this :- site:yoursitename.com (Don’t put www) and then hit enter what this does is Google will show things of your site which are being indexed by Google on Google Search Engine.So as you can see in the Image below I have searched for site:crazytechsolutions.org and Google shows all the Indexed URL’s of my site.
2)Now just scroll to the bottom of the page and there go to the last page of your site as you can see in the Image below when I went to the last page it shows a option of Repeat the search with omitted results included so just click on it and now all the indexed parts of your site will be shown including the omitted bad links.
Note :- If you will go to the last page of your site some people wont be able to see the option of Repeat the search with omitted results so no need to worry that means you are not having many bad links and the number of bad links which you are having are already in the search results.
3)As you can see in the Image above 1 bad link of my site i.e my sites wp-admin area link also indexed so when you will click on Repeat the search with omitted results included you will see many such links.As you can see in the Image below when I clicked on Repeat the search with omitted results there are so many such wp-admin bad links Indexed on Google.
Note :- You may not get such wp-admin file so don’t think you don’t have Bad Links as there are other types of Bad Links too so just make sure that the files which must be indexed are just your Blog Posts, Blog Categories, Blog Pages, Sitemap, Robots.txt File that’s it, so all other links which you will see Indexed are not Good and are considered Bad for SEO which are stopping you from getting Good rankings !
How to Remove Bad URL’s from Google to Increase Rankings on Search Engine :-
1)You might be thinking that why I’am telling Bad Link right ? So just have a look at the Image below when I opened that link.As you can see in the Image below the look of that wp-admin ajax.php file now you only think who would like to go to such page and why would Google consider your site as High Quality and Good site if you are having such low quality Bad Links Indexed.So just because of such links you might be losing traffic and rankings too Right ? So lets remove them Now just copy the link address from the URL address bar.
2)Now in order to remove them you can do that just via Google Webmaster Tools only.So just login to Google Webmaster Tools and then from the left side Navigation bar just click on Google Index > Remove URL’s and then just click on Create New Removal Request then just paste the copied URL there and then click on Continue.
3)Now you will be taken to a new screen and there just select the Removal Reason as Remove page from Search Results and Cache and then just click on Submit Request.
4)Now as you can see in the Image below your URL Removal Request has been Submitted just do the same for other URL’s also, as you can see in the Image below I have submitted my all such URL’s.
Now you might be thinking when will those URL’s will be Removed right ? According to my experience it gets remove within some Hours but max time it can take is 12 hours not more than that according to me
