    Hello Fellow Marketers!

    I have a very quick and simple question.

    What is the fastest way I can De-index a whole 50 page website?

    Cheers!

    Use the URL removal tool in the search console https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/1663419?hl=en and additionally add a noindex tag (noindex, follow) to all pages to ensure they won't be re-indexed after 90 days (or simply delete the site from your host after successful removal). If you don't use a SC account for this website so far, creating one and verifying the site is a matter of 5 minutes.

    Don't try to block Google via robots.txt or .htaccess, this would stop crawling, but doesn't removes already indexed pages. Common misconception.

    Go ino webmaster tools and remove the root url. This will remove all the pages of your site from index.

    Home Page:
    Setup the Google webmaster tools and use the Remove URL's tool in it.
    You can create a new removal request and enter a relative path for de-indexing the pages.

    Block the entire domain via robots.txt and then remove the site from from the index in Webmaster Tools.

    That's completely false.

    Add a line in your robots.txt file:
    Disallow: /

    It'll deindex all the pages next time Google crawls your site.
