Is it real linoleum or vinyl?
usually the rugs leave a yellow stain which cannot be removed. Maybe this time its blue for some reason.
try armstrong's once n done found at any flooring store. Lighter fluid can be used as well, test behind the tiolet first, but thats what the manufacturers use.
do not use these products if it is true linoleum though.

linoleum stains

I've had stains on my linoleum floor and on my countertops, due to making jelly, and we know how nasty that can be...I used a product called Simple Green. It worked. Also works excellent on cigarette burns on such surfaces.

Just to add to Stacy's advice-

Simple green will toast real linoleum, and simple green will tear up wear layers on vinyl, but if it's your last resort, its better than having stains if it works.
Manufacturers of vinyl use lighter fluid.
