I went on my sister's website and sent her a message via Facebook, now on google search there are 4 foreign sites naming her website and showing my name. Could you please explain what has happened? Is her website still secure and am I now in a vulnerable position with hackers? Thank you Linda
Hi Linda. Thank you for the question. Can you explain this a little more? Maybe point me to the web site or the link containing your message so I can try and explain what might have happened? I look forward to your reply. Thanks!

Website is rondaschinacupboard. I used google search engine. You will see at the at the end of the page a Chinese and a couple of other foreign google sites with my name included.
Thanks for the reply. That looks normal to me. Chinese search engines are notorious for being aggressive in how the index and display content on the internet. Anyone who runs and properly monitors a web site will likely be familiar with this behavior. One of the web sites I run gets hit constantly by Chinese search engines and I often have to block them from crawling my site to get them to stop. The web results I'm seeing look like the typical indexing done by these search engines. They typically just scrape whatever data they can find related to a site and index it, sometimes even creating new web pages with the content so that it gets indexed by other search engines. I don't see any reason to be concerned as this looks like typical behavior of the web to me.

Thank you very much for your answer. If I speak to Google will they be able to remove them? Linda
Google has a form you can fill out to have information removed, but it is unlikely that they will remove something like this. Anything you post online gets indexed for search results unless that web site asks search engines to stay away by providing some special configuration on the web site itself. And even then the foreign search engines are notorious for ignoring the rules. If you'd like to try the form, you can click here for it. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks again!
