Hide & Remove from Google / Search

Can I hide my site from Google/Search? Can I remove it after it has been indexed? How do I remove an image that shows up in search?

You can hide your page from Google and other search engines by enabling the "Hide from Search Engine" feature. Go to Settings -> Advanced -> Privacy & Legal and tick "Hide from Search Engine". Click "Update" to make sure you save the changes. If your page has already been indexed by a search engine, it may take about 2 days for it to disappear.


Remove from Google after being Indexed

If you already show up in Google search and don't want to, you can remove a page from Google by following this link -- this involves the use of Webmaster's Tool. Once you get your site removed from the index, it will take another 2-3 days to add it back.

You should also try the hiding methods we have for unpublishing. Email support@strikingly.com if you're having trouble!
