    How long will it take to see results in the case of pages that have been indexed, will they eventually be removed from search? Or should I remove and rename them to be sure they’re gone? Thanks!

    @chipster12345 Just noticed your message. This plugin doesn’t actually remove items from Google search, just from the WordPress search results.

    Many popular plugins, such as Yoast SEO for example, will handle the functionality of removing a page from the Google index or blocking it from being crawled in the first place. My plugin is intended to simply hide certain pages from WordPress search, not all of which you would necessarily want hidden from Google search.

    Take a landing page for example. You may want Google to index it, but you may not want those searching on your site to find it. Or maybe you want to hide a ‘Thank You for filling out our form, here’s a free download’ page so people can’t just search for it on your site and get the free download.

    so lets say my client wants to have a survey page but its only supposed to be accessed by the 50 or so people she emails the link to.

    will it work in this case.
