Finding your old "deleted" works on the web

I’m sure I’m not the only one who posted works on the internet years ago that we may not be so proud of now. However, at least in my case, if I search my name I still get pics of those old duds in various places. Some of them aren’t there if I try to go to the site, but I can still see the pic in the the search. Is there any way to get those off of the net and permanently delete them?

Sadly I think this is evidence of the saying, “once on the internet, forever on the internet.”


Yeah, I kinda figured that. I was hoping someone may know a “secret” I don’t. Wishful thinking maybe.

Same here. It’s really frustrating. I’m in competition with my old pieces. They are high up in image searches whilst my newer better stuff is pages back. If you find out how to get rid of them I’d love to know.

I feel your pain. Here are some links that might help. For whatever remains, discerning viewers will be able to see the progress you’ve made.
