    How can I remove old content from Google’s index?

    >>CUTTS: Here is a fun question from Sebastian in Germany. Sebastian asks, “We still have old content in the index. We block them via robots.txt use 404 and delete them via Webmaster Tools, but Google still keeps it. What can we do to quickly delete content from the index?” This is a great question. It looks like you’re doing all the right things, so I’d be interested to find out more details. But let me tell you what most people do because there is often, you know, some sort of accident in place. If you want to remove a single page, you need to make sure that your web server…

    Google’s new Mobile Search Index

    Hi everybody, I’m Sandeep with this week’s Digital Marketing Moment. Today I’d like to talk to you about big changes happening at Google with regards to how they’re indexing websites.

This is a search index that catalogs all the websites online, and thru Google’s proprietary algorithm, with hundreds of different ways to calculate, determines how websites are ranked on web search results. When people execute searches on mobile devices, this same index is what they’ve been using so far, up until now. Going forward, Google is now beginning to…

    Submit to index via Google Webmaster Tools

    Hi everybody, Matt Cutts here. I wanted to tell you about a neat feature of Google Webmaster Tools that you might not have heard about yet.

So you want to find out whether you’ve really gotten rid of the hack because the hackers have gotten smart. They’ll do things like only show Googlebot the content, and regular people don’t see the hacks. So when you trigger Fetch as Googlebot, it will actually send the real Googlebot from Google to fetch a page on…
