    Difference Between (Webmaster) Remove URLs Tools and Disavow Tools


    Hello Dears,

    In my site has some links which is unnatural and not in use. Now I want to remove this URLs from Google.

    There are three way to remove URLs in webmasters.
    1. Webmasters Remove URL
    2. Webmasters disavow
    3. Robots.txt

    Can any one suggest me which is the best way to remove URL from google.

    What is difference between Remove URL and Disavow Tools. Actually before a year I disavow some old links via disavow.txt (https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/disavow-links-main)
    But if I disavow again with some new links then which is the correct way. Either replace old (disavow.txt) file, remove old (disavow.txt)file, update the current (disavow.txt) file or create the file with different file name.

    I really confused that Disavow tools. So I am not using this. Instead of that I want to use Remove URL tools but I didn't more knowledge about that so I didn't use.

    Please Help Me.

    What do you mean with "in my site"?

    Do you mean that the hyperlinks are actually on your own website, pointing to somewhere else?

    In that case: NEVER use "Disavow".
    (you shouldn't really use that anyway, by the way :--)

    Disavow means that you don't trust the link, and since that link is
    on your own page, you don't trust the page either. That's just like
    saying to search engines that your own website is not to be trusted.

    So don't...



    Next question: what exactly is it that you want to remove?
    - links (for example different links that lead to the same page)
    - webpages (from the search results)

    Hello cause of security reasons I can't provide the my site or webpages links.
    But below are some example for your understanding.


    My website links are the below like that.


    example.com/&sa=U&ei=y6SDVOqxJ5TioATf2YC4AQ&ved=0CBoQFjAB&usg= AFQjCNFjvsVgrSbolW7WcUMfJ1YARITWmg
    example.com/?&sa=U&ei=Jkj2VOu1NoHaoATizoKgDw&ved=0CDIQFjAF&usg =AFQjCNEMacGlQqKcuK18njxhbvfD5XfN6w
    example.com/?&sa=U&ei=wEX2VN_EO5KoogSMpICIBg&ved=0CD4QFjAH&usg =AFQjCNEspNOMzGSu_3p-H8ajXMV1TVoLYg


    Above links are different but its redirecting on home pages only.
    So in webmaster HTML Improvement showing error that Duplicate Meta Title and Description.

    Do you want to get rid of ALL the links that look like that,
    or is one of them the "main one" while the rest of them are "duplicates"?

    In that case you should maybe look into how the rel="canonical" attribute works.

    I'm guessing that Google Webmaster Central (Google Webmaster Tools) has already
    hinted that you should use that... (?)
