  •  in short: you can't (0+ / 0-)

    the internet never forgets. unless you have control over page where something is posted, and even then, there are many kinds of caches, some that don't expire.

    •  so you mean (0+ / 0-)

      so there is no way to have my address blocked at all? ever? Isn't there a way to block google from posting all my posts? THANK YOU!!

      •  no (0+ / 0-)

        google simply aggregates what is posted elsewhere

        •  thank you (0+ / 0-)

          thank you, I hate the answer but really appreciate your help. again thankyou

          •  you can tell Google not to list your "phone book" (0+ / 0-)


            If you google a person's firstname lastname, city, st
            you will often get that person's "phonebook" listing; i.e., address and phone number and a link to a map for that address location.

            You can ask Google to exclude you from those listings and they will do so.  So do most of the other big search engines.  I can't remember exactly where I found Google's "don't list me" link -- it was a long time ago when I delisted myself -- but it wasn't very hard to do.

            But re: other posts that you have written on other websites (or this one, for that matter) -- no, not much you can do about them, unless you control the websites themselves.  Google just finds them and returns them in response to search queries.
