Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I have more then 90 videos placed so in the regular Search which are now shown on 3rd place on any regular Search with those terms i optimized for.
Now, i wanna know how can i delete them again or make them disappear again?
I have blocked the Bot to spider them with the robots.txt but this seams not to work, and i don't want them delete because there are very useful for my users.
i need some help on this.. the traffic is still the same, because they're not on all Data Center ... someone has any idea?

[edit reason] fix formatting [/edit]
for example: example.com/city.html <-- high traffic page
and on this page is the *.swf file which is exclude by robots.txt and
on subdomain.example.com/city.flv is the video which is also excluded by robots.txt.
all excluded but always shown in regular serp's and on google video.
i have no idea how i can tell google not to show my videos...
The language during the removal process is a bit fuzzy about "page" and "url", and I've never removed a video url so I cannot assure you how it will go, but it's worth a try.
I don't want my video to appear in Google Video search results. What do I do?
...Other third-party site. If you uploaded your video to any other site, please have that site's webmaster follow the instructions in our removal information for webmasters page.
Once the webmaster has removed the video from the Web or blocked it from being included in our index, our search results will automatically reflect this change after we crawl the site again.
is there noone who has seen this results with this 2 videos on 3rd serp position?
i need a technique to get rid of it also from the google video search ...
Are you sure that the tool reported removal already? That would be extremely fast. Usually I see those requests stay in "pending" for a few days. At any rate, I've heard that processing video files takes Google a bit longer that regular html urls, so I'd give it a few more days before assuming it didn't work.
1. Change the filename and the embed/object tag that references it. At the very same time, start out with the new file name in your robots.txt file.
2. Use an X-Robots-Tag in the server's http header for your video files. If you're on Apache, you could add this to your .htaccess file:
<Files ~ "\.(swf¦flv)$">
Header append x-robots-tag "noindex"
See Google Blog [googleblog.blogspot.com] for more.
the last action will be to change the embed tag and the reference file in the swf file, but before i will try the .htaccess file
thanks so much tedster

You've seen the beginnings of your request taking effect - even though it involves video files which have been reported to be a slower thing. Things sound like they are moving ahead to me.
This is the first example we've seen here of the slowness of Google Video search to change - although I've read about it elsewhere around the web. I'll certainly remember it for the future.
and a newer one, and Google think that are 2 diffrent videos - and eachtime i submitted a video-sitemap to change the Title, Description and so on Google thought it would another video - i think they have problems to identify exactly the videos. By one Keyword there are shown 2 videos on Google Search which are the same. Also, there i changed 6 month or so the embed tag
from yes to no - and the changes still do not reflect in Google Video Search and more then 6 month passed, that's horrible. I blocked all with robots.txt and i renamed also the files so Google gets an 404 error - there is nothing i can do more. I hope it will work - but how long will it take? Only Google knows.
Thanks so much
