Hi Rahul,

Yes you should remove your tags not categories. The reason is tags increases with posts or categories or posts.

So if you let tags in your sitemap or submit to google console, then your site first page search might show few tags which is not useful to get you rank on page 1 of google for a certain keyword.

So its better remove them. Request reindex in google console. Wait for few days. 

Good Luck.

Hey Rahul, thanks for your answer. I am actually worried about the same you mentioned.  All my tags are shoing in google search.

Yes i know. I have checked your website in incognito google search. Most results are from tags.

Remove them, reindex them and let actual pages indexed on page 1

How do remove tags from search engines without causing any data crash?

To remove tags, you can add rel="nofollow,noindex" to all tags pages and resubmit to google for recrawling. So google will recrawl and slowly start removing these pages/tags from search console.

It takes time but will work.
