Removing Images from Bing Image Results:
Pictures that appear on Bing image results are actually hosted by a different service (i.e. not Bing). In order to remove pictures that appear in Bing image results:
1. Determine where the picture is displayed:
- Click the picture in the Bing search results to view the full image
- Click “•••”.
- Select “View source image”.
This will provide the website address for the picture. Information about the website where the picture is displayed can be found within the website address for the picture. For example, if the website address for the picture is http://www.websitedomain.us/imageinformation.jpeg, the site where the picture is displayed would be http://www.websitedomain.us.
- Access this website and look for information about how to contact the provider to request the removal of your picture/video.
2. Contact the provider:
- Include your age: It is important to tell them if you are a child/youth. Include your age at the time the picture/video was taken as well as your current age.
- Say that you are the person in the picture/video: If you are recognizable in the picture/video, include this as well – this may give your report a higher priority.
- Say that you did not post the picture/video, did not agree to it being posted and want it removed: They need to know that you object to the continued posting of the picture/video.
- Let them know if you sent the picture/video to someone else: Include those names as most providers set out rules for the type of content that can be posted and those who break the rules may be prevented from posting content in the future.
Cached content on Bing:
If the content has already been removed by the host (404) but is still displaying on the Bing Image Results, you may submit a Page Removal Request.
Steps to Submit a Page Removal Request
- Access http://www.bing.com/webmaster/tools/content-removal and sign in with your Microsoft account (formerly known as Windows Live ID)
- In the Content URL input box, enter the exact URL you found in the Bing web results (for example, by using Copy Shortcut/Copy Link Address functionality in your browser)
- In the Removal Type drop-down menu select Page Removal
- Click Submit
When you click submit, Microsoft will run a check whether the page is actually no longer available on the web. If that is the case, Microsoft will submit the request and add it the Submission History table. However, if Microsoft detects that the page is still live on the web they will prompt that you can only submit an outdated cache removal.
