Google adds remove option to Google Autocomplete

February 10, 2011 One Comment

Not because I'm an ego maniac - I was trying to find something, honest - I Googled my name. And Google Autocomplete offered me the option to remove suggestions from the list. Here's a screenshot.

As you can see, next to the first two suggestions is a "remove" link. When you click it, you get a message saying it's removed.

Next time I type my name, it's gone and a different option is there.

Now it's gone

Now it's gone

I think this is new. But who knows ... And it seems to be offering it only on things I've searched for - as opposed to the "malcolm coles twitter" suggestion which I can't remove.
