    I'm not sure who to talk to about this so hopefully someone hear can point me in the right direction! When I search for my just published website, I come up with three "hits". Two of them has my personal email address. One of the hits says http://www.-------.com/author/mypersonal email address. The other one has my email address in the description. So, how do I edit or delete these urls?? I don't want my personal email address out there for everyone to see!!! HELP!!!! Sorry to not give the site address, but I don't want everyone on the forum to see the email!!

  2. If this is happening then your email address is being used as your username. If you go to edit your profile at Users --> Your Profile you can change that.

    You can information about removing URLS's from Google here: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/1663416 .

    Many SEO plugins have an option to disable author archives from being indexed. I know that with Yoasts WordPress SEO plugin you can do so at SEO --> Titles & Metas --> Other --> Disable Author Archives / no-index.

    Thanks for responding, Patrick. I will try your recommendations and see if they work.

  4. Great. Please keep in mind that it may take some time for the URL to be removed from the Google Search Results. If your site is really popular it will be removed faster.
