    Posting links to other social network sites- without them linking back to Minimins?

    Hello all,

    I'm looking for some tips on keeping my profile/stats/diary private when linking to external sites I'm associated with.

    I want to share links to my photography website, my IG, FB, blog etc, but I'm dead scared that by doing so when people do a google search for my website or facebook page it'll come up with the minis post/profile in the search because of the link!

    I really REALLY want to keep my minis stuff private from my work, my friends, etc- it's so personal! But I'd love to share links to my photography website, my travel writing blog (when I make one) in my sig so that people I interact with on here can see my stuff- is there a way I can mask the link so that it doesn't show up in a google search? I wondered if TinyURL would mask it, but I think it might contain the original URL enough to be searchable?

    I thought about putting my Minis diary into a private/bronze diary bit, but really I'm petrified that people searching for my work will still come across my specs etc on my profile here... But I don't want to remove them altogether! And I'd rather not have a bronze diary as I like interacting with and helping new people to the site/weight loss.

    Sorry if this doesn't quite make sense... I just know that if I search my old email address or myspace URL it comes up with all these threads on other sites that I'd posted it onto, I'd hate if someone interested in hiring me wanted to do some background search and came across my minimins profile/diary in the process... Or even just old friends having a snoop!

    Any tips would be great! Can I set my whole profile/user or even just stats to only viewable by members somehow?
    Will TinyURL or some other site make the links not be searchable on google?

    Thanks in advance! x

    You can only hide from joe public if you put you diary in the members only, silver or gold sections

    You need to PM Pierce or Mini to get permission to put links to any off minimins blogs on here.
    If you want it enough you won't keep finding excuses to not do it.

    What fits your schedule better -- Exercising 1 hour a day or being f** 24 hours a day?”

    Paleo since Apr 2012 9st 9lbs got to 8st 7lbs October 2012 and with focus,exercise and motivation have stayed below 9st since.
    Hard work and dedication pays off.No time for excuses if you really want to loss the weight.
    I can now enjoy special occasions without having to worry about what the scales will say after.
