How to remove your profile from Hotfrog

Are you considering removing your profile from Hotfrog? Before you do, did you know, not only is your profile an effective and measurable advertising tool for your business, but being included in Hotfrog means potential customers can search for - and find - your business online 24 hours a day?

More than 3.5 million* companies are listed on Hotfrog's Australian directory. You don't want to miss the opportunity of being found by searchers searching for products and services your business offers - or losing business to a competitor.

Also, when you're listed on Hotfrog anyone using a major search engine, such as Google, to look for businesses like yours has a good chance of finding you.

If, however, your advertising needs have changed, for example if your business is no longer trading, you can remove your profile from Hotfrog with a simple process.

First, login to your Hotfrog dashboard by clicking on the 'Login' link on the top right hand corner of any Hotfrog page, and then enter your email address and password.

Choose 'My Account' from the dashboard menu and click on the 'Remove free profile' link. If you change your mind, simply click the 'Keep My Profile' link.

Your profile will be removed from Hotfrog instantly and the feedback page will appear next. Your feedback on why you are leaving is valuable, as it will be used to improve Hotfrog's services, so please spend a few moments more to choose the reason from the list provided. Once you have done this click 'Submit Feedback'.

Please note:  Search engines have to re-index Hotfrog to update their search results. So a summary of the older details will stay on the search engine sites until this is done. This happens automatically, usually within a few days but sometimes it can take up to four weeks. If you click on the search engine result you will note it does not take you to a profile on Hotfrog and web users cannot find out any further information other than what can be seen on the search engine results page.
