How to Remove My Quiz From Showing Up on Google


If you marked your quiz "private," it would not show on Google. Private quizzes are only visible to those you share the quiz URL with.


If the quiz was first public and then marked as private, it's possible that Google indexed it earlier. We add the noindex and nofollow directive for Google (and other search engines) on private quizzes, so next time it refreshes, it should remove the quiz from search (a process that can take a few days or be instant - it just depends on Google). If you need it removed immediately, you can :


  1. Password-protect the quiz - So even if someone finds it, they can not access it without knowing the password. Keep the password simple and common across all quiz takers.
  2. Copy the quiz, mark the copy private, and delete the old one. However, you would lose the quiz taker's data of attempts, reports & stats in this case.
