Welcome to the Local Search community my fellow Torontonian.

What sites are you trying to get your data off of? What exactly do you mean by "personal information"?

Thanks!

Well for starters, when someone searches for my number on goggle or yahoo, they find search results of this telephone number once belonged to a business like a long time ago maybe 5 or 6 years ago. i have done my part and contacted as many of the web sites, most of them have removed the phone numbers from their directory listings, but there are a few stubborn web sites where the email address to contact them is either goes unanswered, or its full (bounces email) or it doesnt exist any more, which i find to be very unprofessional.

i have even gone as far as doing a whois lookup on the web sight domain and trying to contact the administrator, so far only 50% succes rate, still same problem, emails dont get answered or bounced back to me. any proven ways to finally remove my number from those sites or should I live with it?

p.s. i know how to contact google and have them remove the search results once the web sites update their databases, im succesful in doing this.

I'm thinking about making a post to see if anyone know how to remove/modify their personal info from these offenders below?

Reverse Phone Lookup - Reverse Canada
canada.bizfolders.com
sireh.com
ca.soopage.com
PAGES CANADA - Annuaire local et Recherche Web
yellowpages.rin.ru
Ontario - ontario Classifieds, Free Classifieds ads for Ontario. Post or browse free local community toronto, ontario, Canada classified ads with events, free give away, announcement, rental, services, merchandise buy and sell

I have no problem removing my personal info from other sites, they were very friendly, but these sites i am having a hell of a hard time, anyone got success plz let me know.

For starters, not many people are going to Google your phone # so I would not worry too much.

Check the tips here if you really want to put energy into this:

But forget that one site from .ru. Don't think you'll get anywhere with that one.

Hi thanks so much for answering my post a few years ago. It looks like the worst offenders on the list I posted are not being maintained and have somehow fallen apart or went offline. This works in my favour, but lets hope they do not re-sell their data to someone else, oh no.

It looks like I was able to get rid of 95% of the sites publishing my number/info, so that aint bad
