One of the more popular requests you see searchers and webmasters ask in the Google help forums is how does one remove content from the Google cache that has been removed by the webmaster.

It happens fairly often, where a webmaster will publish something then take it down but Google still has a cached copy of the old version. So how do you remove that old copy on Google?

Google has a lot of details on various ways of removing content in their article named Remove a page or site from Google's search results Share Comment Print but sometimes it is easier to show someone, instead of telling someone, how to do it.

Squibble, a forum Top Contributor posted a video demo on how to remove old cached results. He posted the video in a Google Web Search Help thread. Here it is:

Pretty useful, don't you think?
