Welp, I never seen such a thing. Sounds links you trying to remove a link as part of the “right to be forgotten” and not in the Google Webmaster Tools. Perhaps they changed things. I’ve attached a screenshot of the page where you should add it. Is this the page where you have input the URL to be removed?
You can also use the robot.txt file to remove a URL. To learn more about them see this page:
This page explains how to block a specific URL:
This should do it…
User-agent: * Disallow: /name/montaro-ellis
You can test the robots.txt file on this page:
All this said … I just added code that runs very early while WordPress is loading. It check for an entry slug (‘/name/entry-slug/’) if it is not found, then it’ll trigger a 404. So, after that update is released and installed on your site, when Google crawls the page next (if you do not use robots.txt) they’ll get a 404 response and eventually remove it from their index.
