OfferingTree automatically creates a site map of all valid links and future events on your OfferingTree site and submits that to Google periodically in order to have your pages and events be found.
Once an event has passed we no longer submit that event to Google. However, Google may keep that event link in their index and show it as a search result for your site. If you would like to have Google remove that link from the search results, you can request a remove from the Google Search Console.
This is a tool that Google provides to a site owner to help measure your site's Search traffic and performance and to help fix search issues. If you don't already have access to the search console for your site domain (this is only available for custom domains and not offeringtree.com domains), see this article on how you can set this up and verify your domain.
Request Removal of a link
- Go to the search console's Remove outdated content page.
- Select your domain
- Under "Removals" click "New Request" and enter the link you would like to remove
- Click "Submit"
Google will take a few days to remove the link from search results, and you can monitor the status of the removal from this page.
