Search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo may show your profile or boards in their search results. If you don't want to appear in search results, you can edit your settings to turn on search privacy. If your profile is private, search privacy will be turned on automatically and you won't be able to edit it. You must be at least 18 years old to edit your search privacy.
