Since the recent media hosting upgrade, all members now have an external webpage, as well as their ProductionBase profile.
By default, these external profile pages are set to appear in internet searches, such as Google, Yahoo and Bing etc. This is great for people who want to show their profiles to people who are not members of PB, as you can give the link to anyone, or add it to your email signature for example.
However, if for any reason you would like your external profile NOT to appear in searches conducted via search engines, then please follow these simple steps to remove it from public domain.
- Log into your PB account and click “Edit My Profile” from the profile menu in the top right corner.
- Click the “Edit” button next to “Privacy & Webpage Settings”
- Under “My Webpage Settings” you can change various options, including whether or not your webpage is visible to search engines.
- Click “Submit”
This will remove you from any search engines, where people may have been able to find you.
Please note – the time it takes for you to be removed from the searches is dependant on the search engines itself. Search engines use differing technology to crawl the web, and each has different time-scales in finding your URL and removing it.
We hope this helps but please get in touch on 0845 496 1418 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any further information or assistance.
