We can delete or remove negative content from a number of websites. When we can accomplish this, it means that the negative content will be removed completely and will no longer appear on the website, or in search engines. This process typically takes 2-4 weeks and is backed up by our Service Guarantee.
Combating negative content is often the focus of many of our clients. It can be that a single post is having a large impact on public perceptions of your company, as well as on your sales. While removing the negative content can be beneficial, another way to address the problem is to focus on PR. PR, or Public Relations, is a way to promote your company to the public in a positive light. Quite often negative content has a higher impact when there is no other side to the story. By promoting your company to major publications, and getting the word out to local and online media sources, you can change the way your company is viewed.

In general, a search engine could claim that they are not responsible for material found through their index. Google, for example, has a standard response to anyone who’s complaining, like you, that a search for their name reveals embarrassing information: “The webmaster is responsible”.
However, this is not entirely correct. It is possible – under ceratain consditions and in some extreme cases, to get the search engine to remove the “incriminating” pages. In some limited cases, several groups have managed to issue a cease and desist order against a search engine.
The reasons have been:
* In cases of the Church of Scientology, they thought that they found the perfect way to deal away with they sharpest critics – they complained to Google that those sites were publishing illegal information (that is, protected by copyright). Google had to remove the results; and temporarily also removed the whole site xenu.net This is relevant to you if you would like to claim that the material you’ve published on those forums was your own copyright-protected material. It is a problematic cause, because usually a forum-member signs a standard release form that the material posted is not his or hers. In any case, this could be an avenue.
However, let me get back to Scientology and why I think that their strategy is stupid (JW have also used the same strategy).
* In other cases, Google blocked access to sites or information that was illegal in a certain jurisdiction – neo-Nazi propaganda is illegal in Germany and France (and therefore blocked from the google.de and google.fr sites); most notoriously, Google removes much information from the Chinese site, which is monitored by the Chinese government.
Naturally, if the information regarding you is “only” inconvinient, but not something that is illegal (libel/defamation, etc.) it would be very difficult for you to use this second way – yo don’t have the resources or the power of those governments.
In addition, in my analysis I mentioned only the largest search engine, Google.
However, although Yahoo! received the same cease and desist notices (or was also involved in such legal battles, of groups demanding to remove adversary information from the Internet), you will not be able to visit all search engines.
