I find it very discouraging and embarrassing when the site is worth peanuts. There are sites like Stuffgate and Alexa that keep crawling sites, dishing out info relating to the site worth and I don't like it one bit when such details get indexed by "G".

Can anyone help with removing and preventing this from happening?

You can't prevent this from happening but in my experience it is. not something you immediately see unless you are looking for it yourself in all my years that I build a website and help people I always give advice do not immediately look at what your website is worth google needs time to index and to examining whether your website contains quality content or whether there is interaction, the age of your domain name is also worth something so yes this is discouraging but not something you should worry about in the beginning but that is my opinion

You can't do that because those are external websites. That would be like somebody deciding to get Google to stop indexing your website, just because they didn't like your content (hopefully you can see why that should not be allowed, lol!).

Nobody really takes those things seriously though, don't worry about it :)

Also - you'll probably discover your site is worth a lot more:

This step does not stop the search engines from indexing my content? 🤔

It says underneath there's no other I know of
It is up to search engines to honor this request.

Yeah, I saw that, and thanks. My question is, by checking that box, will I not stop the search engines from indexing my blog posts and pages instead?

yeah you will...and not a good idea if you want your content found by the search engines...
as Dale says above...don't worry about those sites...
when do you check the worth of a site before you read the article returned on page one for the query you just typed in...
just make sure you create very high quality content, that answers the query you are going for....
and your site will build slowly over time...
have fun
