I have a webpage that used to contain the keyword "XYZ".
I have sinced removed the keyword, so that the entire page, including the source code, does not have the keyword "XYZ".
However, when I search on google for "XYZ", my page still appears. (This is after a few months of removing the keyword).
What I have tried:
changing the url "slug" of the page. I am using Wordpress, so even though the url is changed slightly, Wordpress is smart enough to direct it back to the same old page
using Google Webmasters to re-fetch the page
However the above two don't seem to work.
Is there any other solution to make my webpage not appear in search, other than deleting the webpage (which would be the last resort)?
Thanks for any help.
