How can I remove an SSRN Paper/Page from Google Search Results?

Solution

Google Crawler

Search engines, such as Google, regularly crawl the web to rebuild their indexes. Unfortunately, we have no control over when this will occur since any number of factors can affect the crawl frequency of individual sites.

When an SSRN submission is made private (and not included on the author page) or removed, it should automatically fall out of Google's search results. However, if you urgently need to remove content from Google sear results, you can request removal of the URL by using Google's Webmaster Tools.

 

To request removal of the page:

 

  1. Go to the Google public URL removal tool at https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/removalsYou will need to log into your Google account or create an account if you do not already have one.
  2. Follow the directions to remove the url from Google Search Results

 

NOTE: The URL is case-sensitive; use exactly the same characters and capitalization that the site uses.
