Google Search Brings Up Scrapbook Layouts
Posted 15 May 2013 - 10:08 PM
I have been putting the copyright symbol and my name in the gallery post as someone mentioned to take credit for it. Maybe I shouldn't do that anymore? Can I remove them from the ones already posted in the gallery?
What are your thoughts on this topic?
thanks for any insight you can offer....Amy

Google search grabs up almost everything on the Internet and displays it as part of the search returns. This just means that people can see the image and then, if they want to see it better, they click on it and it takes them to your gallery. It's just like what happens if you search for a term and then various website pages are shown to you. It doesn't have anything to do with copyright, because showing it in the image search returns doesn't remove your copyright.
Everything on the Internet is copyrighted, pretty much. Having Google show your image doesn't take away your copyright or interfere with it in anyway.
The only way to make sure that any image or page or post or anything at all you post on the Internet won't be displayed as part of a search return is to not post it at all or to post it in a protected place. You can put your images in a protected album you set up here, if you'd like. Then the only people that can see them are people that you give access to see them.
A good rule of thumb is: If our members can see your images, the rest of the world can, too. Google's search engine just makes it easier for people to find what they're looking for.
Hope that helps!
Life is an adventure of many colors. Enjoy the view.

You could try removing your copyright, since that contains both your first and last name and see if that helps, but I cannot guarantee that it will. Contact April Showers and she can tell you how to go about removing the copyright or removing those images all together.
Also, if you do try that, don't expect instant results from Google. It could be days, months or potentially never when they decide to "re-index" those images. There is a whole career field built around trying to guess what Google will like and rules change daily.
