    old website taking priority over new site in google, help

    hello
    you wonderful informative folks helped me make a resume site for myself some time ago
    i have since lost the username for ftp access to the site and remade it with paid hosting instead of free hosting, with my own domain name and everything
    the old site was number 2 for searching for patrick allard on google, but the new site is far down the list
    <snip>
    ive tried contacting the free hosting provider, trying to get him to delete the site or relink it, even giving him the password and offering $10
    as i expected the customer service on free hosting isn't top notch
    does anyone have any ideas on how i might fix this?

    Maybe if you contact the free host's abuse/legal mailbox (usually somewhere in their TOS) and try to frame it as a copyright issue they'll be able to take down your old site for you.
