As a candidate or a highly visible public figure, sometimes you may see inappropriate, untrue, or damaging content about you appearing in a Google Search. Some of these search result examples include outdated information, personally identifiable information (i.e. your personal phone number, home address or email address.), non-consensual explicit photos, and several other types of categories. 

Google has recently made it easier to remove information from Google search results.

This short Google article goes over some of the reasons you may want information removed, and provides recourse on how to go about requesting its removal: Removing Your Information from a Google Search

We also highly suggest reading this Google blog article, which elaborates on the process of removing your personal information, and why Google made this important expansion to allow removal requests: Help Control Your Online Presence
