Can you delete Google search results for me?

We cannot delete Google search results themselves without first removing the source information that the search result is pulling the information from, the data broker websites. Google is not the source of the search results its showing you; it’s merely displaying your information from the most relevant sources, based on your Google search query letting your information be found more easily. Google does not have the file containing your personal information, nor can it delete the file.

To remove something from Google’s search results, you have to remove it from the original source first. Once you take down a piece of content, Google and other search engines will naturally filter it out of search results. If you’d like to try and speed up the process you can try using Google’s URL Removal Tool. Note that you’ll need a Google account. Just hit the “New removal request” button, paste the link to the site that needs updating, and under “Reason,” select “The page has changed and Google’s cached version is out of date” from the drop-down menu. Then follow the directions on the page and “enter a word that has been entirely removed from the live page but is still present in the cached version.” Finally, submit your request. Google will approve or deny it within about 48 hours.

We also provide a free online guide for removing or pushing down in search results, as well as a free DIY guide for every data broker website online.
