Extend Block

All Deep Link blocks expire 90 days from when they are created. However, users may opt to extend a block for an additional 90 days at any time. To do this, simply select the blocked URL and click Extend Block. (Expired blocks may also be extended in this way)

Delete

Any Deep Link block may be removed at any time using the Delete button. Please note that these changes may not be reflected immediately in search results.

Export

Using Export will allow you to download and save a local CSV detailing all recorded deep link blocks for your site.
