How can I prevent my Facebook profile from showing up in Google searches?

Does anyone know if there is a way to prevent a Facebook profile showing up in the search results when someone does a name search on Google?

This tip in the Facebook help page might be of use:


If you go into your privacy settings on Facebook, you will see “applications and websites” at the bottom left. Select that and you should see a choice for “”Public search” with an “edit settings” option. After you click “edit settings” uncheck the box for “enable public search” and that should stop your profile from showing up on search engines like Bing and Google.
