How to remove a zombie Xanga from Google?? TheXenomancer 12/2/13 6:42 PM
I've read the FAQs and searched the help center, but still no avail. I want to speak to someone from Google about a "Special case removal," but there is no way to get through.

Xanga is shut down, and I have no way of logging in because the email it was linked to is defunct/password forgotten. The defunct email has no linked backup emails, so it exists as a virtual island.

The instructions on the FAQ say to contact the webmaster, but the webmaster has a legal wall thrown up by privacyprotect.org. When I tried to send a webmaster contact form through them, they stated that no domain exists with Xanga under their sphere of influence. But the Whois explicitly says that they are legal custodians of it!

I want to be able to search for a job without the risk of snoopy busybodies judging me for a rather explicit HTML page header from the past.

Superficial heartfelt reassurances need not be put in response to this, because reassuring me "no one will look" does NOT solve the issue, thank you.

Google doesn't control the contents of the web, so before you submit a URL removal request, the content on the page has to be removed. There are some exceptions that pertain to personal information that could cause harm. You can find more information about those exceptions here: https://support.google.com/websearch/answer/2744324.

You might have better luck contacting Xanga by going through their Contact Help page: http://help.xanga.com/about/contact/.

The content is removed, though. I managed to get through to the webmaster, and she said that there is no longer a post nor content. Mr. Kuan, please contact me so that we can discuss this in depth, and I can forward the email correspondence for proof.

If the content isn't on the web anymore, use the standard removal form:


Job done.
