Does Google De-Indexing Help with Website SEO?

Google will remove websites from its search results if they believe they are obligated to do so by law. If the site contains illegal content, such as copyright infringed content then the sites links can be removed from Google searches entirely.

In order to remove copyright infringement a DMCA Takedown notice must be filed. Often it is best practice to file for removal from the infringing website first, once the content is removed from the website it will also come down from Google search results. To get started, submit the Takedown from here: Takedown Form
