How To Remove RipOffReport.com Entries From The Search Result Pages [PART 1]
If you’re reading this it’s probably because you already know what the effects of a ripoffreport.com thread can do to the online side of your business. If you’re not familiar with ripoffreport.com it’s basically a low-level BBB copycat and yes, that is a mugshot of the owner to the left from 20 years ago.
So, this guy Ed has created a website where consumers can go to post reviews on services or products, alerting other potential clients and customers that the said product or service may not be on the up & up or may be different than advertised. Not so bad, right? I mean, who would object to giving consumers a voice and allowing them to speak out when they’ve been wronged? The problem is this process is totally and completely anonymous. I could signup and post about a company I have never used or even herd of and from that point on, anytime someone searches Google for that company’s name, this ripoffreport.com page will show up containing my false accusations. Now, that is a problem.
How To Remove RipOffReport.com Reports in the Search Results
This is what most people want to know because for most it’s the most important question. Forget about his past crimes, his whereabouts, and so fouth. The most important thing for many business owners is getting rid of this terrible listing in the search results, which probably hoovers right beneath or above your official site.
OPTION 1 – Your first option is to pay the extortion money that Ed and ripoffreport.com are seeking. The problem is that paying this money won’t make the reports go away, it will just add a disclaimer type deal to the page which states the reports are either false or that you(the business owner) have promised to change your bad behavior. The problem with this is obvious, this website named “ripoffreport” will still be sitting there above or under your official website. Obviously no matter what the report says about the claims being false or you promising to change your behavior, potential clients/customers are going to be very worried about a site called RIP OFF REPORT featuring an article about your company.
OPTION 2 – This is the option that most of you are looking for. You can SEO your way out of the eHell that this website has caused you. First, most of you will need to know what SEO is so go here, then come back once you’re done reading that. So, sounds fairly simple, right? Not really. The problem with this is that you have to rank between 9-10 different websites above ripoffreport.com in order to fully push it off the frontpage of Google. Is it impossible? No, but it’s going to take a lot of work.
There are a number of ways to do this but I’m going to talk about the one that will be easiest for you, the average reader/small business owner.
We are going to use domains to get the job done. For this tutorial we will need to use a company as an example. So, I am going to go find a company who is in ripoffreport.com and we will, together, get it un-F’d in the search results. I will continue this tutorial after I find a good target company to give my charity work to :].
Once ready, I will add a part 2 link to this story so you can continue reading on.
