Results about you

Concerned about too much of your personal contact information showing up online? Like to regain your anonymity? Google has a relatively new tool in beta called Results about you. This tool allows you to take control of that online information and delete it in most cases. You can find it on this page.

I submitted my request and found a bunch of sites that were publishing my private contact info, over 200 in fact. I requested deletion and was approved. It turns out that one site emanated from my gallery and I undid the deletion as I needed clients to be able to get a hold of me. Another was a magazine article that I wished to remain up.

Useful tool.
