When business and personal web presences have become mixed, what steps can be taken to separate them? Are businesses pages, such as a Google Plus "page", or a Facebook "page," actually separate from an associated personal account? To disassociate business and personal web presences, is it necessary to delete personal pages, and ask Google (and other search engines) to remove links to them from their indexes? In general, what sequence of steps would "shut open doors" between ones personal and business web pages?

You'll probably need to inquire with Google, Facebook etc. I recall several years ago, Facebook made you create a personal account before you could create a business page, but I think they changed that some time ago. Also, If I recall, I think Google forces you into providing your personal information for a Google Plus account also. As far as any standard websites go, it would basically be a manual procedure of removing any hyperlinks, domain names, etc that go back and forth between the two sites. You'll have to weigh out the odds and decide if it's better to try and dis-associate everything or close all accounts and start fresh with new sites and accounts. .
