SEO tactics

De-index

De-indexing is removing a URL from Google. If a website owner doesn't want a specific page, or it's entire website, to appear in Google, she can no-index that page. This can be done using no-index meta tags or HTTP headers.

Deindexing can be useful for website on test or staging environment.

Additionally, you can use Google search Console's Remove URL tool to request a URL to be removed.
