How To Un-Google Yourself
By on December 2nd, 2009

Google is a search engine which does not see any boundaries, unless and until you show it some barriers, by blocking it using robots.txt. Many of us, including webmasters, like to have Google index our content as soon as possible.

However, some of us would prefer that we are not on Google. If you are someone who does not want to show up in Google search results, the Wired wiki has a nice little article which will show you how to Un-Google yourself.

They cover using robots.txt as well as social networking sites like and LinkedIn, so that you are covered all around. However, if you want to stop too, all you have to do is to convert your account to a protected one.

Another interesting point covered in the article includes how to choose smartly between image sharing websites, lest your wedding pictures make it to all of the Internet.

    Today by googling your name , everybody may find information about you that you are not interested that anybody will know . This negative information , can prevent you to live the life you want , because of this info , they will not hire you, although you are suitable for the job, you will get rejected , banks will not give you credit or even open you an account, potential clients will not make business with you , nobody will want to partner with you , in business as well as in life , and so on .

    This information that has been written about you is very difficult to erase or eliminate from the net , because it is placed on websites you are not controlling .

    The only solution is to bury the content you don’t want to be found ,by adding new positive contents and moving new created websites higher up in search results for your name. In this way you are pushing down from page one and two , all the negative information about you and replace them with fresh positive ones .

    Most Internet users don’t continue browsing past the first 10 search results.

    We are experts in this field , we are the most professional operators in the sector and we specialize in burying negative contents on the net .

      I was arrested over five years ago in Mississippi in an internet sting operation. This case is not settled and I would like my name removed from this article. It has affected my work, home and life. I would like to live a normal life and stop being an outcast in my community. I am innocent until proven guilty of this crime. When my name appears on a google search by coworkers, friends and associates I am proven guilty in their eyes. Please help.

        Dear Richard ,

        thanks for your email .

        First of all I would like to tell you that what we do is to push from the first and second page of google all the negative and defamatory information about you , by replacing it with positive ones .

        From the most recent research done , they found out that who is googling somebody’s name will check the first page , maximum go to the second page of google and other search sites , but only 2-3% of surfers get to the third page , so we take control of this two first pages , and part of the third one , with positive data about you .

        So you will remain with a chance that 2-3% , will digg deeper than the second page , and see the dafatory posts .

        Next thing we do is to contact the various websites that posted the negative information , and for doing so we use leading law offices, and ask those websites to remove the negative content .

        We usually charge a flat fee of $ 3000 USD , however we are not asking to be paid a single dollar before you actually see the results , it means that we start to work without any downpayment .

        We work in full confidentiality and in the most discreet way , with regard to respecting privacy or maintaining silence about something of a delicate nature .

        Each and every step we take and make -we advise the client , and show him the results .

        All our work in done by email .

        We remain at your complete disposal .
