How to remove your name from search engines
You must stop creating new content if you want your name to be removed from search engines. No more blog posts, comments, or social media updates. The next step is to remove all existing content from the internet once you have stopped creating new content. You can accomplish this by deleting any social media accounts, removing blog posts and articles that you've written, as well as deleting comments from other websites.
The next step after you've removed all your content online, is to identify third-party content about you. Although some content is malicious, the majority of it is content that was already available in the public realm but was not published on a strict basis.
You might find information about directorship or membership in professional organisations, details about your household, and even where you live.
This information is copied often, without our authorization to online directories. It is either replicated or is being made more complete by including multiple sources on one site. Now, you will need to contact the content creators and the platform hosting the content.
You can request that they remove the content from their websites. You can also contact search engines to ask them to remove any links about you from the web. Contact each search engine to request removal of your name. This process can be complicated and time-consuming. To have your information removed, you might need to prove your identity to the search engine.
Once your name has been removed from all major search engines you can take steps in order to stop your information appearing in search engines in future. We understand that online content can be stubborn or difficult to remove.
