Google Search Remove Outdated Content form

I use Flickr for my pictures. I had uploaded a family picture and forgotten to change its permission to “Family,” and hence, when a parent Googled herself (a wise practice), she saw that this picture was coming up in the Google search and people could access the photo. She alerted me, and I corrected the permissions in Flickr. Within a few days, the public could no longer access either the photo or the Flickr page, yet the image’s thumbnail continued to appear in the Google Search. I used the Google Search Remove Outdated Content form to request that Google remove it.

Getting WordPress to Update Google+ Pages for Businesses

The theme I use on this blog allows me to automatically update my Twitter account and Facebook page with each new blog entry I publish. I’m learning Google’s new product for businesses, Google+ Pages. I successfully updated the Help Us Get Online Page, but the privacy setting for the post was not public. I followed these instructions, and I’m hoping that this blog entry will update the page and be visible to the public.

Changing who can see your Publicized posts on Google+

After you have authorized your Google+ connection, you can change this setting by going to Settings > Manage apps & activities from within Google+.

P.S. It worked! But I had a grammatical error in the blog subject header. I’ve corrected it, but it remains where it was automatically entered into the Google+ Page.
