Lots of clients come to us after being unfairly and unjustly maligned online, and their reputations are being severely damaged regardless of whether the negative press is true or not. How can you fight an invisible adversary who posts damaging info about you or your business? The author of the negative article or video is almost always anonymous, leaving their victims no recourse to handle the situation like adults.

Just to be clear, while we believe in freedom of speech and the right of free expression, we abhor disingenuous content and will not entertain requests to post negative info online.

Nevertheless, the problem of bad press is often further complicated by the fact that the sites hosting the articles are not moderated, and so trying to send an email request for removal hits an inbox that nobody ever sees. Yet, day after day people post harmful things about others online, whether on social media, blogs, video sites, or review sites in order to ‘get back’ at someone. If you find yourself in a situation like this, here’s a quick guide to help you rectify the problem and fix negative search results.

You want the world to see you as you really are, and developing a positive presence online is key to making that goal a reality.
