Converting to friends-only [Jan. 25th, 2007|01:51 am]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


Is there an easy-to-use (for the layperson) client that converts all posts to private?

I'm trying to convert my account to friends-only, retroactively. Seems pretty impossible.

Also, does anyone know how long it takes Google's cache to expire?

Yeah. That's about the shape of it. I didn't realize google indexed LJ. Go me. Let's hope my prof doesn't google his own name too often.

Actually, that's only one of the methods :)

If you use the single page option, you can request the entries be removed because the page now has the meta tags in them for it.

Although it says "Single Page" you can use it multiple times. Your best bet is to tell it to remove your user page, and any entries you explicitly don't want in the cache or searchable right this minute. They'll be gone in a couple of days, and google will remove the rest next time it crawls your journal.

Thanks for the great advice! It's a relief to have a solution.

Could you please clarify this? What do you mean by "the single page option"?

When you go to google's automatic removal system and log in with a google account (or make one if you don't have one), there are 3 options for removing pages from google's index and/or cache.

One of those is labeled "Remove a single page using meta tags". That is what I was referring to :)
