    I have a small niche site that I started which I now want to get outta Google... how do I do this?

    Yes, it is my site (not a competitors site), I have complete access to it all.

    I want to leave the site up & running, but I would like it not to be in Google.

    How do I do this?

    Please don't say point a million links at it, that may actually backfire. :p

    ask google? its called a directory removal request.

    change your robots.txt file to stop spidering.. itll fall out eventually

    You can also login to google, add the site to webmaster tools, verify ownership, then submit a url removal request. Your site will be dropped (and there is a something like a 6 month waiting period before you can even begin to think about adding it back into the index)

    He's probably just bringing in traffic from something like Twitter.

    You can also meta tag all the pages with a robots tag of no index/no follow, as below, although this is all se bots. The second if specifically Google, but in my experience Google generally ignores robots.txt, robots meta and google bot meta.

    Code:
    <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow" />
    
    Googlebot

    Code:
    <meta name="googlebot" content="noindex,nofollow" />
    
    You could add a mod to your htaccess regarding user agents, which I guess would be better, as it's the server that's doing the work not the ignorant Googlebots, but as i've not tried this i don't know whether it would work. Incidently, i'm not even sure if this code is right! :D

    Code:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Googlebot
    RewriteRule ^.* - [F,L]
