Tens of duplicate homepages indexed and blocked later: How to remove from Google cache?

Hi community,

Due to some WP plugin issue, many homepages indexed in Google with anonymous URLs. We blocked them later. Still they are in SERP. I wonder whether these are causing some trouble to our website, especially as our exact homepages indexed. How to remove these pages from Google cache? Is that the right approach?

Thanks

  • If those pages are deleted they will be removed from the cache very soon.

    create a sitemap and submit it in the google search console.

    for the future make sure that every page has a canonical metatag and that this metatag is calculated based on what it really should be and not one of those hacks that simply output the requested url. canonical is your friend for exactly such problems.

    i personally would check what pattern those duplicate urls follow and add 301 redirects where possible instead of returning a 404 error. but would like to hear other opinions on that.
