    Exclamation Getting Rid of Google Cached Info

    Hello Support:

    I didn't know where else to ask this question. I just did a Google search on my name and my Website name.

    I was shocked to see the content in the cached information there. Even one of my emails to Voda Host showed up as a listing on Google's first page!

    Is there any way to hide or prevent information from being cached?

    I would really like to know.

    Thanks,
    WebMagic

    No email you ever sent to us is on the first page of Google, at least not from us. Anything you write on any public forum, blog, etc... on the internet will be indexed by all the major search engines. If you do not want it to be seen by the world, do not put it on the internet.

    And I think you are confusing the search results with the cached pages - totally different things. But, as Voda said, public messages will be found - and can help you obtain ranking - as well as could be why your site is even being spidered often.

    And no private email would ever show up.

    Thanks to you both - Voda and Bethers!

    I wasn't aware that forum postings were listed in Google. You were right. That is what showed up - a forum posting, not an email.

    I don't understand Google's cached pages. Is there any way to control what shows up there?

    My apologies for taking so long to say "thanks". My website has become a MUCH bigger project than planned. I've been super busy with it!

    Your only control is to have a website with good content - so when they pull up info from it, hopefully, they'll pull that. However, anyone can mention your website anywhere - and that will be found.

    Just remember - it's GOOD to have links to your website.

    Thanks again, Bethers!

    You bet I want links. Lots of them! (relevant ones tho!)

    That's in process with article submissions right now. Will do Press Releases very soon. SEO submissions require more research on my part.

    Cheers!

    All the major se's have already picked up your site - so submitting isn't really necessary. Although taking advantage of the VH submission process could get you into some of the smaller ones or some directories that might not have found you yet.

    Hi Bethers!

    How do you know my site is already picked up the major SE's? How can you tell?

    By the way, can you direct me to info regarding the use of add-on vs sub-domains? I'm thinking of setting up minisites without the full "powerlife-solutions" handle attached. Would add-ons be best for that? (I can't find the Manual where I first saw explanations about these options.)

    Feel so dumb!

    You can find out the pages that the se's have indexed by putting this in the search box: site:www.powerlife-solutions.com
    As you can see by the below, Google has already indexed 33 of your pages:
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...om&btnG=Search

    An add-on domain has it's own domain name which you must purchase. A sub-domain is simply part of the same domain name.

    It really depends on what you want to do with the mini-sites. I really think you'd probably be better off working with making ONE site the best it can be and add pages to it to help it get better - unless the mini sites have reasons to be separate. And if they do, then they probably would be better off as add-on domains.

    That was Fast!

    Thank you, Bethers! I didn't realize add-ons had a price tag. I'll just keep prepping my unfinished pages, like Links and Media Room.

    Still need to figure out the best way to handle archiving of articles and newsletters. Separate page for each archived item?

    Sorry, didn't mean to keep pestering!

    Your help is much appreciated!
