In April Google released a way to remove URLs in Google from within Google Webmaster Tools.
There has been very little chatter about reincluding content that you have removed in the past.
With Google it is very easy to reinclude content that you have manually removed. As described:
- Sign into Google webmaster tools with your Google Account.
- On the Diagnostic tab, select URL removal request from the list of tools.
- Select the Removed Content tab, and then select the Reinclude button next to the content you want to reinclude in the Google index.
Then wait about three to five days and your content should be back in the index.
Does it work? A WebmasterWorld thread seems to suggest so. One person said it did:
I did this with dozens of pages, and am now reinstating them.
So far, everything has worked fine. No problems.
