E-yearbook.com, operated by Digital Data Online, Inc. (DDO), appeared below my name in Google after I opted out of many people search websites. I requested an opt out, and Fall 2016, they resolved my complaint at the BBB. A year later, I accidentally Googled my name as one word, and my yearbook name, year, and page number of my photo was there and my photo in images. On the website page, my name was replaced by special characters : ,... fwea: .- , A 2, rt - 5' :,,. . .V 'V . . ff- ' (some students were listed as one word in OCR text). I contacted e-yearbook again. They sent an email which explained how Google creates an index using keywords...eventually the page would be updated and removed from below my name. To speed up the process, they advised me to use: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/removals?pli=1
This did not work, because the live and cache pages were the same; my name or any text change would have to be in the cache to succeed. They did not offer to remove the page completely. According to canig.com, a live page must be blocked by a NOINDEX meta tag or robots.txt to be removed. I contacted Google about their email, and they emailed contact the website, and provided links for removal options. Jostens stated on their website, the school is the publisher and they have the copyright: https://www.jostens.com/helpmenu/yearbookinfo/past.html My school's current yearbook advisor texted me, they had not given permission to any websites to put yearbook photos below student names. As of 2016, there is legislation governing what is allowed for website advertising, in California, where my school was:
In the same google search, Summer 2018, I noticed other pages from the same yearbook, and another photo of me (candid) in images. They updated the page again and put three yearbook pages on the same website page, and they deleted the special characters and my name from the OCR text below the candid photo. This was worse! It would have been better to have left the old page as cache, but the live and cache pages were the same, so I could not use the webmaster/tools/removals. I submitted a complaint to the BBB again, but the complaint was not resolved. I asked to have both complaints at the BBB removed when they would not post the unresolved one. Google has been using their images and my name as one word as a related search to their website images and other website images in other places on the web, and below my name hyphenated. I feel these images are being used incorrectly. Since I am the only related search below those images, and no other person has ever had my name. Scammy websites use my name without permission to download videos and images; one is of a federal government official who has the same unusual first name, but they use my name below her photo. I emailed David B.Wilson of BINGZAP2 ENTERPRISES (website registrant and organization) and Charles Bryan Michael president and website registrant of DDO but they did not reply. I think DDO should contact Google about the problem. They think removing my name solved it, but it has been more than two years, and they have only added more photos.
