deleting/hiding google search results?
it's an unusual silly email address (not based on my name) and i could see someone googling it to see if it leads to anything.
well, it turns out there are some forums that for some reason show up in a google search of that email address. for example, i've commented on hundreds of IMDB movies, but two of my movie reviews come up when you search my spam email address. i don't know why IMDB would return a search on an email address rather than a user name, but it is what it is.
in another case, it returns my email address and a common user name i use from another site.
by definition an email address is a unique string, so it's hard to hide. ironically when i google my personal email address, there are no results tied to me.
fortunately nothing humiliating is out there, but i don't necessarily want people to be able to get this information about me just from my email address. that's why i use a spam address and a fake user name - i don't want my movie reviews connected to me. i have an almost non-existent personal internet presence.
is there any way to de-link google results from my email address, or is this all part of the "right to be forgotten" debate?
