    How do you remove old website tags from google search? I had a website that had a /about, /donate, /work and I made it all to a one pager now. But when I search the name of the side on google, it still shows the old ones but when clicked it says that the page is no longer up.

    When you say re-do this process, do you mean re-submit your site map, or do a crawl and render?

    fetch and render gave me a blocked error. robot.txt is still blocking the crawl?

    GREAT video. I recommend everyone watch this. That said (and I believe it's a Google thing) when I was in Google> Search Console> Crawl> Sitemaps … and entered my sitemap_index.xml after my … the Google test said, Test complete! However, under that it reads, "No sitemaps found for this site." Why? WHY? W H Y ?! You made everything SO easy to follow up until then!!!! Any suggestions because I'm quite sure that's going to happen to others.
