The fastest way to change search results is to remove the content upon which the result is based completely from the website in which it exists. That usually means the author must delete it. Google cannot delete information from a website, but once it's been removed, Google will remove the listing from its search results within a few days (usually).
If deleting content from a publisher (a blog, news site, video channel, etc.) doesn’t seem feasible, or doesn’t work, the second choice may be to ask Google and Bing to remove something from their indexes. But that doesn’t remove the content from the site itself, it just makes it far more difficult to find. And if it's more difficult to find, less people will see it.
Removing pictures and personal info from third-party websites and Google image results is much harder than deleting photos you posted yourself. Sites and site administrators are often unresponsive when it comes to answering removal requests—and those that do answer are unlikely to process your request regardless of the reason.
But that certainly doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. While getting negative images removed from Google or another site can be tricky, there’s always a (slight) possibility your efforts could pay off.
For instance, if the person who posted the image is a friend, relative or coworker, a simple phone call or email may be all that’s needed to get it off the web.
And a polite, persuasive removal request to the right site owner is sometimes all it takes to remove an embarrassing image and repair your Google search results.
Unfortunately, if you’re trying to delete images on Google and elsewhere, you’ll likely hit a snag somewhere in the process. And when a site has stolen or used your images without permission, that snag can turn into a major obstacle, requiring a more forceful approach.

There are certain times Google itself is your best bet for removing images from search results. While this isn’t the same thing as deleting a picture from a particular site or wiping it off the internet, it will help to reduce its exposure and minimize its impact on your online reputation.
Google’s Removal Policies provides a set of guidelines for what it considers removable content—images, blogs, articles or other content types that constitute a “significant risk” to the individual and may the Google’s removal of personal information from search results.
According to Google, images that may be eligible for search result removal will likely:
Contain sensitive medical, financial or national ID info
Involve involuntary fake pornography
Exist on sites with exploitative removal practices (mugshot sites)
Include personal contact info intended to harm the individual
Contain nude and/or sexual imagery and was posted without your consent (i.e. revenge porn)
Google will also delete pictures and images from search for “specific legal reasons,” such as those containing imagery of child sexual abuse or violating DMCA copyright law under the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act). Note that the latter will only help remove images from Google if you’re both photographer and holder of the photo copyright.
Each day your negative image gets front-page coverage on Google is yet another missed opportunity to impress your followers, strengthen personal relationships, attract more customers and advance your career. But with the right level of support and expertise, you too can remove bad images from Google search, repair the damage and take the wheel of your personal brand online.

If you aren’t quite ready to make a decision, there are several essential steps you can take right away to improve your reputation marketing strategy. These tactics are only a small component of the complete strategy we can help you execute at enterprise scale.
Expand your digital footprint
Assess your search landscape from an objective standpoint: Take a look at the content populating your current search results. Be sure to first sign out of your Google account so that doesn’t influence your search, then plug in your own name or the name of your company to take a peek at what people see when they look you up online. Focus primarily on page one of your Google results, since 93 percent of people don’t leave the first page of an internet search. Learn more about how to Google yourself here.
Claim all of your online properties and web pages: Whether or not you plan to manage accounts on Foursquare, Pinterest, Tumblr, or other social networks, you should at least claim the accounts before someone else does. Not sure where to start?
Try using KnowEm to discover unclaimed accounts. Many brands have discovered counterfeit profiles publishing harmful content under their names. Furthermore, you may end up having to buy the rights to an otherwise free profile in order to silence the rogue account.
Use your social media accounts: While you don’t have to regularly post to all of your accounts, expanding your social media presence by setting up profiles with images, logos, and business information is a good start. You should also actively use any networks that make sense for your brand.
Showcase your expertise
Write and promote your own online content: If you don’t have a blog, consider starting one. WordPress is a free and easy place to share blog posts that tell your story. Google prefers active and relevant content, so keep your blog updated regularly and encourage comments on your posts as well as on all your other social media to signal to search engines that this content should be clearly visible.
On the other hand, avoid “keyword stuffing” — cramming in as many keywords as possible — as this can have an adverse effect and actually push your content further down. Another good way to get your site in trouble is “cloaking,” or attempting to boost your rankings by presenting different content to search engines than to users.
Become an authority by writing guest posts: One way to expand your digital footprint and display your knowledge is to write guest posts for other websites. These articles shouldn’t be about you, but they should be credited to you so searchers can find them.
Improve your visibility
Consider paid and earned media: Traditional marketing tactics can also help boost your visibility and reputation. Good old paid media like commercials and pay-per-click advertising can draw positive attention to your brand. Earned media coverage, which consists of organic word-of-mouth, articles and unpaid reviews, is a bit more difficult to obtain. However, it can have a powerful impact on your online reputation.
Link to your most positive online results: Promote articles about your brand’s corporate social responsibility and other positive initiatives by linking to it from highly trusted and authoritative sites. This will send a clear signal to search engines like Google and Bing that this content is relevant and popular, and it should rank higher as a result.
Monitor for trouble
Sign up for Google Alerts: Monitor brand mentions (good and bad) by setting up Google Alerts. You’ll be notified whenever someone mentions your name or brand so you can react quickly. Alternatively or additionally, you can also sign up for the aptly-named Mention, another tool used to monitor everything said about you on the internet in real-time and in 42 languages.
No matter how you dice it, managing your online reputation is a necessity whether you’re hoping to advance your career or run a successful, profitable business. Ignoring your search landscape is no longer a luxury many can afford without disastrous consequences.
