How To: Find Yourself On Google. So You Can Remove Yourself. -SUPER Noob Edition-

RR 4.0

Here are some quick tips to aid you “SUPER Noobz” out there. In how to find yourself on Google. So you can remove yourself.

1) Put your name in quotation marks. So if your name is John Doe search for “John Doe”

2) Try variations of your name and middle name. So if you had a middle name of Andrew as well as searching for “John Doe” search for “John Andrew Doe” “John Doe” “Jhon Doe” “Johnathan A Doe” etc

3) If you have a common name (or even uncommon name). You can reduce the number of results by searching for your name link one or more related terms to it.

First of a search for your Facebook profile:

“John Doe” FaceBook

If on the other hand you want to see whether a forum or message board profile can be linked back to you. Simply by searching “John Doe” had a profile name of “IGN PS3 Forum” you would search for

John Doe “IGN PS3 Forum”

This should tell you if your profile can be easily linked back to your real name.

This could be a problem if you had a profile on a message board. You would rather not have anyone know about (Such as adult content or drug related or even illness related)

4) Remember that on some occasions information could be linked back to you already. Such as a linked Digg.com profile/Twitter Account/Flicker Account/Facebook Account. (Often it can be hard to un-link these accounts. But some are easier then others.)

5) Remember if you use a nick name or callsign such as “ACE666”  know the more sites you use it on and a links to your blog (you post). The easier it will be to link it back to you and your site.

Finally a quick tip to reduce your risk

If you have an option to keep information private or limit who can see it. Often such information needs a box un-checked or in some cases actually physically removing the information from your profile by hand -Often after registration- (THIS IS ALSO CALLED STRIPPING YOUR PROFILE)

DISCLAIMER: Results will dramatically vary based on your Internet footstep / tech footstep. Meaning all you SUPER SOCIAL NETWORK JUNKIES out there. Will have a much harder time at this. But regardless good luck.

      Dear Amelie,

      I’m always happy to hear you enjoy our site.

      Q: Did we design this website ourselves ?

      A: Not really we only customized our banner. The rest of the layout is a stock free theme called contempt from WordPress theme database.
