Showing my ignorance as a new Webmaster back in January of 2005 I removed the link to my forum area as it was performing terribly and I decided I would completely redo them the next month. One thing lead to another and a year plus later I found myself getting ready to redesign and install a new forum only to run across my old forum complete with new posts including over 160 posts outbound links to porn sites. I quickly did a query on the wording of the link descriptions and my site name and found Google has these links indexed.
For the last year I've chased my tail trying to figure out where my traffic has gone, could this be the reason? How would you handle the removal of this information? Thanks in advance.
