Using the URL removal system? superscript msg:199193 11:49 pm on Dec 23, 2003 (gmt 0) Is it possible for me to use this automated URL removal system to remove the
search.google.com/**long string of characters**/www.
my in bold text, because these are my pages someone is re-directing too.)
It's really getting my goat!
or alternatively 'getting
on my goat' - as the Australians apparently say, based on a sample of 1 antipodean ;) [ edited by: Brett_Tabke at 5:17 am (utc) on Dec. 26, 2003]

It's my understanding that the URL removal system requires you to either block GoogleBot in the robots.txt (they've only blocked one file, not the whole structure...) or include NOARCHIVE metatags (which they haven't). It says so on [ ...] in bold. :) google.com
Plus they'd need to submit all the millions of pages, which would take quite a while... :)

Yeah, these are medium-long term removal strategies. It seems the automated removal system is quicker, but would remove the page altogether. It's the blo*dy unauthorised re-directs I want booted. abates msg:199196 5:40 am on Dec 24, 2003 (gmt 0)
superscript: yeah, adding the tags/changing the robots.txt is an essential step in using the automated removal system, otherwise just anyone would be able to unlist a competator's site from Google.
Unfortuantely that doesn't help with your redirection problem. :(
