    I have a website for 3 years now and until recently, I had all sort of pages indexed by a google, such as tags and even links that will open a image when you click on it.

    Of course none of these were ranking, and I don't want them to rank cause they don't provide any value.

    However, about a month ago or so I used yoast plugin to no index everything except posts,pages and categories.

    I put no index on archives, tags, media etc..

    My question is:

    Should I remove these urls manually from the google index via search console, or will Google remove them from index after few months?

    I don't really care about those pages being indexed or not, I just feel like having them no indexed will be better overall as they don't provide any value to the visitors.

    Thanks in advance for all the replies!

    Google will remove these pages from index slowly as you have put no-index tag.

    Removing them manually will speed up the process. Still, it’s not necessary, as Google will eventually remove them from the index.

    As others said, you can wait. Or else you can manually deindex all pages to make it quicker.

    Maybe I have used wrong word, I know you disawow bad links that you don't want google to count as part of you backlinks, for example, when somebody is doing negative SEO on your website.

    English is not my first language but Disawow means, according to google, "deny any responsibility or support for". So maybe it is not used in search console when we are talking about links of our own website, but I think people here are smart enough to know what I mean when I say disawow unnecessary pages of my website from google.

    It's funny how people only try to find mistakes of OP, but don't really answer their questions. I guess boosting that post count is a must-do, isn't? It's ok to say why the OP (in this case me) made a "grammar" mistake, but couldn't you take 10 seconds extra of your time, to answer my questions and provide value to this forum?


    For everybody else, thanks for your answers.

    as you alter your website eventually google only keep what website links are current.

    when google index your website with your sitemap info the old links will be dropped .

    for backlinks disavow them ok.

    backlinks are stuck to the domain not the website it self ok.

    Are you qualified to judge sites.... is anyone???

    Disavow should be deleted... Its just a way of snitching on webmasters and you will always disavow quality links ALWAYS. There is no negative score for bad links so what you worried about?

    Its more funny that you mistakenly used some other word which is totally used it for different reason and I made it cautious. But instead accepting your own mistake , you are trying to preach me. But atleast now you are clear that why disavow used for. try to spend your time valuable not to preach lesson who are trying to help you by giving a hint.

    @AntiHacker - for bad links, do NOT use disavow tool. it does more damage than good. only use disavow tool when google gives you a penalty mesg in search console

    Really?? How did you try to help me??
    I respect your decision to correct me about one word, english is not my first language, but you should also answer my question if you criticized me for it, not just criticize me. Truth is, you didn't bring any value to this thread.

    Streact369 said the same thing as you, but he provided value by answering my question as well. And I thanked him, and he liked my comment.

    It is fine if you criticize somebody and then try to help him, but criticizing alone, is not helpful at all.

    Please stop commenting on my thread without providing value to the same thread. Thanks!
    It is not hacked pages, I explained that. I also explained they are not removed, and that I put no index on those pages via yoast SEO plugin. Thanks anyway for trying to help.

    Mods, can you please lock this thread? I got my answer, thanks!

    Stop spamming.

    I am not active on this forum because of people like you. I don't have to explain myself to you. I am over here making real money, and I am not wasting my time on forum going on other people threads and spamming. Grow up.
