Removing negative content is not a quick and easy task, but it's almost always worth trying (so long as the attempt to remove it doesn't make things worse). Research shows that nearly 45% of people discover things online that change their minds about doing business with a company.
If a potential customer reads even one negative review, they aren't likely to click your link or purchase your product.
It's not just reviews. Things like defamation of character, bad reviews, negative articles, or something else can all damage your reputation and in most cases ought to be removed from search results when possible. What Google’s first page says about you or your business is arguably more important for your online reputation than your website or your business card.
So when disgruntled employees, angry customers, or competitors create negative content about your company, and it starts showing up in search results for branded keywords (ex: Acme Widgets), removing or countering it becomes a priority.
There are a couple of strategies to counter negative search results.
Try to get the negative content completely removed from search results.
Try to get Google to remove the content from search results using a copyright infringement strategy.
Push the negative search results down by creating and ranking positive content about your company
With an eye on the trends in user behavior and an experienced reputation management partner supporting you, you can cultivate ongoing trust and respect for your online identity.
Here are a few things to consider when choosing a reputation management company:
How many years of experience does the company have?
Do they specialize in the specific area of reputation management you need help with?
Do they deliver exceptional customer service? Will they be available to answer any questions you may have or to deal with crises as they unfold?
Have you researched the company and reviewed their references/testimonials?
Getting the negative content about you or your company removed from Google search results is rarely simple.
There are two ways to get content removed directly from a website
Contact the author of the content , editor, or publisher, with a request to remove or alter the content itself. Explain how it is portraying your business in the wrong light and causing damage to your reputation. We provide a script here.
Ask the website owner to add the NO-INDEX tag to the page that has negative content. If this is done, Google will ignore this page and won’t show it in search results.
Ask the website owner to remove any references to your name in the article. This will make it far less relevant for your branded search phrases, and thereby drop out of search results in most cases.
Use copyright infringement as a basis for removal.
Reputation management is more necessary today than it has been in the history of humankind. With the proliferation of review sites, news media and twitter, information can spread in a matter of seconds and can linger for years.
At the risk of sounding like doomsday prophets, every brand and every business today are at risk for reputation damage. Tech-savvy antagonists know how to create and distribute false information. All it takes is a single fake-but-compromising Photoshopped image on 4chan, a fake review on Google, or a spam comment on your Amazon product and you are facing a crisis that could destroy your brand.
Reputation, as this article should have made clear, is largely out of your control.
But there are things that you can do — both proactively and reactively — to manage your reputation
Targeting the editor to remove online content
In case the author refuses to remove the negative post, doesn’t respond or tells you he can't remove it, you’ll have to contact the editor of the online publication. This is like "going up the food chain."
You can usually find the editors' contact information on the contact page. You can also approach them from the publication’s social media profiles. Again, politely explain your point and ask the editor to remove the content.
Target the publication
If the other two methods don’t work, you have the option to take legal action against the publication that has published negative, incorrect and defamatory content about your company.
If you go ahead with this approach, you’ll need to have documented evidence to prove your case and that is hard to do. You might also need to seek professional legal assistance.
Oftentimes the more sensible approach, however, is to engage an online reputation management company that can handle all these things on your behalf.
People pay attention to friends' opinions
There is conflicting information regarding whether consumers are more likely to share positive or negative experiences on Facebook, Twitter, and other social platforms. Research suggests it's about equal.
One thing is certain: people pay close attention to social posts from friends. And with the average consumer mentions brands 90 times a week to their friends, family, and co-workers, you can never underestimate the necessity of providing positive experiences.
Distributing good content is as important as eliminating bad
According to a LinkedIn Technology Marketing Community report, the top three things that make content effective are:
Writing that inspires action
Simply nixing the bad content simply won’t do. You also have to generate quality content to capture customer attention and keep your brand image positive and relevant.
One of the reasons why content marketing is so popular is because it works. The majority of survey respondents in a Content Marketing Institute study affirm that their organization’s content marketing is effective to some degree.
Removal based on copyright infringement
Copyright infringement is different than defamation of character. If the negative search results about your company contain images or text content copied from your website or any other web properties, it can be reported to Google for copyright infringement.
It can be any content from your website, blog or social media profiles. A lawyer's help is strongly encouraged — we use them, too.
Google receives thousands of such complaints, so you need to be patient with this. They review each case separately and may seek further details from you. So make sure you have sufficient paperwork to support your claim.
Wrapping up: Negative search results can badly hurt your reputation and credibility, which is why you need to take immediate steps to get them removed. The steps we've shared in this post should help you get started. At the same time, you also need to create positive content so that you can rank for your branded keywords once the negative results are removed.
