Deindexing - SEO Glossary

De-indexing is an SEO practice that consists of indicating to search engines the content that should not be considered. This can be low-quality content or content that you want to keep private so it doesn’t show up in search engine results. We distinguish for example:

  • Pages with duplicate content;
  • The pages resulting from the import of a demo theme;
  • Pages offering spinned content;
  • Internal engine results pages;


De-indexing, therefore, makes it possible to sort and offer Internet users the most qualitative content. To perform de-indexing, you have several options including:

The use of the “noindex” meta robots tag;

The robots.txt file;

The URL removal form in Search Console;
