This is contrast to Google who have a vast array of forms and a difficult to locate automated tool.
Both Google and Bing have very similar removal policies and I have already created a separate help page covering the removal of copyright content from the Bing search engine. I have also created dozens of pages explaining how to remove various pieces of content from Google. (see links to the right of this page)
The Bing contact form is very simple to use and those with a non-technical background should find it a breeze.
The Best Advice
The best advice I can give anyone wanting to remove the results from any search engine, is to first contact the original web site and ask the owner or webmaster to take it down. This makes the whole removal process a lot easier.
Once the webmaster/site owner has removed it then it is usually just a case of sitting back and waiting for the search engines to visit the page and update the search results.
Google has an automated tool that anyone can use, it will check to see if the web page has been taken from the web and will then remove the links from the Google pages. This is the fasted way to remove a result/page from Google.
Bing doesn’t have an automated tool but they do have a contact form. You will need to select from the various options in the drop down menu and then fill in all the details.
Types of Content Bing Will Consider Removing
Bing’s contact form can be used to request the removal of the following types of material:
- Copyright infringements
- Child exploitation
- Court ordered
- Illegal material
- Malware, viruses and web spam
- Adult content that appears when Safesearch is switched on
Site owners and webmasters can also request the removal of their own pages, after they have made the required changes at site level.
