Remove outdated content

Important: If you've already made a change to a live page, you don't need to fill out the form.

If content was deleted from a site but still shows up in Google search results, the page description or cache might be outdated. To request a removal of outdated content:

  1. Go to the Remove outdated content page.
  2. Enter the URL (web address) of the page that has the outdated content you want to remove.
  3. Select Request removal.
    • If you see the message "We think the image or web page you're trying to remove hasn't been removed by the site owner," follow the onscreen steps to give us more information.
    • If you see the message "This content is no longer live on the website," select Request Removal.

You can check the status of your request on the Remove outdated content page.
