Topic: Google lists profiles

I've just noticed that a search on Google (and possibly other search engines) for a particular Company lists the forum profile page of a user associated with that Company. As this is a link I would not wish to be displayed I would be grateful if anyone could tell me how to avoid this (and other users' profiles) being included in searches.

Thanks in advance.

I've been down so long it's beginning to look like up..

Create a robots.txt file and add the following:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /profile.php

Upload to your sites root folder. Change the path to /forum/profile.php etc if need be.

Re: Google lists profiles

I have done some tracking of people online.  If I can get a common screen name they use, I can usually come up with:

Phone Number
City, State
Real Name
Hobbies, and interests.
