There used to be a guide that showed all the ways you are being tracked and all the core websites that own other sites like peoplefinder, Whitepages etc and methods to remove yourself. That guide is now about 6 years old or in internet time that's basically 1523.

So does anyone knows of any updated guide on how to become less googable regarding your past addresses, etc

Once on the internet, always on the internet. aside from archives, even original webpages do not respect privacy rights, I removed all content from reddit and they restored it.
If you want to abandon a webpage, instead of removing info, change it to something else like John Smiss living at Baker Street 222, London, so google will index it instead.
I have separated my real name from the username so they can not be linked, easily, still 2-3 searches remain. I keep the real name only for social media, official business.
