Hi there, Outdated pages cannot be manually removed from Google's search results. The spidering process is fully automated. You need only wait for the Googlebot to visit again for the search results to reflect the update: " When you update information on your site it does not automatically update instantly in Google's index. Rather, Google's index is updated approximately once a month after our robots have crawled more than 3 billion web pages. This process is totally automated, so updated or outdated link submissions are not necessary. Changes to your site's content will be noted by the next crawl. Due to the volume of sites in our index, we cannot manually update pages on an individual basis." Google Information for Webmasters I need my site information changed. - My information is outdated. ://www.google.com/webmasters/3.html#A1 Hope that helps! --Missy Search terms: none.
