    How can I get my site completely removed from the index of search engines?

    does the NOINDEX work in a robots txt file or tag?

    I want it to be removed asap

    any ideas?

    You can file a urgent URL removal request in webmaster tools. I am not sure if you can use it to deindex your whole site.

    NOINDEX in a robots tag will only remove the page from the index next time it is crawled, which could be months.

    where can I find the removal request? I've just been into the webmaster tools and can not find it.

    Any ideas?
