I've made a product unavailable but the URL is still coming up in Google search. Any ideas how to delete/remove the URL?

you can disavow it ... but google won't remove it until they do a rescan and find that it doesn't exist.

Hi @abibee,

 

Nick here from Shopify. 

 

Great question and @Paul_West hit the nail on the head here. The URL will exist until you re-submit your sitemap to Google again showing it doesn't exist. Shopify created a YouTube tutorial for re-submitting your sitemap which you can see below: 

 

 

Once you re-submit the sitemap, Google should update the removed product URL. 

 

All the best, Nick
