When people do a google search for my name, stuff turn-up that are not very flattering. I need a good website service that I can use to cleanup my web search history.

unless you have a few million to spare, you cannot remove what happens when you google your name

I have used such a website before, I just can't remember the URL. The website moved search results that I didn't like, way down, in search results.

Our Dev teams are like yours. They’re continually cranking out code for new features/bugs fixes, testing, deploying, testing some more, responding to production monitoring events and more. It’s complex. So, we thought you’d like to see what’s working for us.

bobox00,

I see you've tried to delete this question even though you do have an answer that is valid. There is no mechanism for removing your name from the search results unless and until you have your information removed from EACH individual site that has it. So if you have a LinkedIn profile, until you remove it, that information will also appear in search results.

There are certainly companies out there that will charge you -- perhaps not the "few million" that esskayb2d suggests, but it isn't inexpensive -- for doing all the work involved in managing your online reputation, but frankly, you can do it yourself, and you're a lot more likely to be successful than those companies are. These two pages explain why simply writing Google won't work:

But the bottom line is that esskayb2d has given you an accurate answer.

Regards,
