Goto the post, and click the "edit" icon that looks like a pencil in the top right area.

I did that and it took it off the post that shows here, but it is still visible if you google my name, phone number or email address.

When you google any one of those items, the original post, in its entirety, with all my person contact information still shows on the internet search results

Yes, Google maintains history/cache of nearly everything it scans.

You can reach out to them and ask that it be removed.. but in Google-land, once anything is public it kinda sticks out there with them.

Your only post is this -
https://pilotsnpaws.org/forum/viewtopic ... 51#p133251

Which still has the info on it... in two places... first step is editing that out.

I did edit it out. It no longer shows in my version of the post.

Those phone numbers aren't mine. My information no longer shows here, on this sites, just if you search it from the internet.

Can you share the link to the post(s) you have an issue with?

If you are talking about what Google has, as I mentioned you'd need to contact them. They save copies of everything on the internet, so just removing it from one website doesn't mean they will delete their saved copy in their search results.
