    Several years ago we switched over our company web site from an ISP to a domain hosted elsewhere. Unbeknownst to us, our old ISP did not delete our old company web site from their server. Of course we don't have ftp access to that server anymore, so the site lived on. I've asked them several times to delete the old web site and replace it with a forward to our domain. I think they are finally going to do this. However, the old web site is still going to be the top hit for a Google search for our company and will still be cached on their servers even if the ISP deletes it from theirs. Can requests be made to Google to remove links and cached web pages? If so, how?

    Thanks!

    Thanks. I tried to find this at Google. But I guess I made the mistake of not Googling it! (Welcome to the Hall of Mirrors!)

    They sure don't make it easy, do they?
