When your name appears on a website, it is usually because you have placed it on the page, or the page is reporting something accurate about you or your business. However, there is an increasing problem of inaccurate information being displayed with one’s name on it, leading many people to ask “how do I remove my name from a website.”
This problem becomes even more difficult when your name is a website that may cause embarrassment or damage to one’s reputation. Two examples of these types of websites are nationalblacklist.com and badboyreport.com.
