A New Way To Remove Content in Google.com via Google Webmaster Central

Vanessa Fox of the Google Webmaster Central team announced that Google Webmaster Central now supports the easy removal of content from their index.

In short, if you login to your Google Webmaster Central account, you can easily remove content (individual pages, directories, entire site or cache copies) from Google.com, if you have verified the site. The blog post also explains new ways of requesting the removal of content that you do not have access to.

Google Releases Improved Content Removal Tools from Danny Sullivan at Search Engine Land has a very detailed write up on how it works. If you are interested in understanding it in detail, read Danny's post. If you just want a quick glance at how you can use it, check out the Google Webmaster Central Blog because they have tons of screen captures.

I am not going to get into how it works or how you make it work.

This was announced later last night, so we currently only have a thread at DigitalPoint Forums.

Overall, this is a nice step for the tool. We know Yahoo added the remove URL feature to Site Explorer earlier this year. But Google's approach is a bit more detailed. But still, nice to see these features and ways to interact with your content via Google.
