    Profiles cannot be removed, that functionality doesn’t exist in WordPress.org.

    So if you can not delete these profiles so I sure that you can edit them and remove links of my site.
    Is it possible?

    *Looks at links HTML and confirms*

    It’s possible but a lot of work and not necessary. Those pages have rel="nofollow set on those links so search engines won’t well, follow them.

    Just ignore them and pretend their not there. 😉 Spammy links get posted in profiles all the time and on those pages it’s not a problem. Also concerns about SERP is not really a valid reason to generate all that work. Can you imagine if every request to edit or remove links was acted upon? *Jan makes horrific face HERE*

    It’s not practical and not necessary.

    I don’t know Jan, if they were coming up in the OP’s webmaster tools then Google may have followed them. I hear Google can play by their own rules.

    Yes Andrew is write. Google want me to remove them.
    Is there any way to remove site’s link from these profiles.

    What is the reason why you want them removed, I mean, what problem is it causing you?

    These profiles have links of my site and I get manual penalty from google

    I’m sorry but as I wrote above

    The rel=nofollow ought to work. Outside of that there’s nothing to be done here.

    Edit: Just for giggles I searched for your domain in Google. WordPress.ORG was not on the hits I received.

    There were lots of other really unflattering links but not here and I would expect you to be more concerned about those first.

    @jan Dembowski please give me examples of those links and also tell me from where you find them.

    I apologize for my “unflattering links” comment, I merely took your domain name from your support forum profile and searched for it in Google. I suggest you give that a try and I am sure you will see what I am referring to.

    Regarding the editing of those profiles, I really do not know what more I can tell you. If it were an extreme case such as harassment, threat of violence, etc. then a case can be made. But what you are discussing is not that: you don’t want those links there because they apparently show up in your Google Webmaster account. That’s not really a good reason.
