Today at the Search Engine Marketing New England conference Google employee Dan Crow confirmed his crawl systems team is working on a new tag that will allow webmasters to remove a page from Google’s search results at a predetermined time.

The tag will appear as Unavailable_after and is a perfect addition for those who wish to expire web pages that may have time-limited sales or pages that have content that is free for a limited time.

Thanks to Jill Whalen for posting this valuable SEO news from the event.

We will let you all know when this new tag becomes available for use.
