I just googled one of my email addresses, and it had a link that led directly to an email in my Inbox!

That can't be right!

...anyone ever heard of this?

was it gmail?

Nope...just a regular email address, and upon further search results, there is over a thousand.

I've emailed Google and asked them to remove this search result immediately.

Well, I just got off a live chat with the provider of the email.

It appears only when I'm logged into the email. When I wasn't logged into the email, it then showed the login screen.

However, the chat tech said he couldn't see the links in his Google search- the ones that led directly to my Inbox.

He could see all the other links that were associated with the email address, but for some reason- he couldn't see the link that when clicked on- would go to my Inbox when I was signed in.

That's weird...

1. What made you search for it in the first place.

I did an article view on my website. It tells me from what source peeps view my webpages from: for instance, Chiefsplanet.com is one. I noticed a few peeps Googled one of my email addresses to find the website. So, I checked it out myself.

2. What's the big deal. Someone would have to know your email address anyway to search for it.

The big deal? I suppose you'd be all right with the rest of the world having access to your Inbox? Tons of peeps know my email address or can at least find them- particularly when I'm on a widely popular BB such as this.

you want to be afraid? very afraid? do a quick search on googles code search and look at all the site code that you can see. All the comments and hidden stuff you were not suppose to see is out there.
