Document the elements of the article that you would like to have changed. For factual errors in the article, provide the correct information from a verifiable source, or at least be prepared to provide verifiable evidence that the existing facts are wrong. For slander or libel, simply highlight the offending passages, and, if applicable, prepare a brief explanation of the injury that the statements might cause to you or your business, or to the relevant people and businesses involved. Copy the article’s web address, or URL, and take a screenshot or a photo of the head of the article to document that it was published online..
Call the newspaper’s offices, explain that you have a correction to make, and ask for the desk of the department that ran the story, such as the city desk, the features desk or the sports desk. Don’t ask for the paper’s Web producers: Go straight to the newsroom and the editors — unless you know that only the online version of the article, and not the print version, contains the offending material. You can find newsroom contact information from most newspapers’ websites, though you may have to dial a general number to begin.
Tell the editor or assistant at the relevant news desk that you wish to have the offending article corrected or removed.
There are two ways to go about this. The sites that Google owns and manages are regularly updated which means that if the content or site functions get obsolete then Google itself will remove it from the search result. However, what we would like to focus on is, when a certain somebody has posted certain maligning content about your site or service online and you’d like to take that particular content off google.
For any site, the webmaster is the one who can make changes when it comes to changing things over there. Which means that you do need professional help to get things done. This is where Brandco.expert steps in thereby helping you with your online reputation management problems.
A negative link on Google or any other social media sites for that matter can have a bad and long-term impact on you and your brand which means that things need to be done fast and before the situation gets out of hand. Easier said than done, very few companies can deliver what they promise when it comes to these things. And, we never break our promises.
Now, it is essential to realize that Google is just a search engine which means that it cannot directly take action on what should be on it or shouldn’t, especially certain content that a certain somebody might find offensive. Here, what you need to do is to let Google know about your situation and wait for them to help you out.
The problem with the waiting period can be that you never know whether they’d really be able to help you or rather when. This is where you need to take matters in your own hand and try to get things done. You can either do this by yourself or hire a professional like us to get it done for you.
Be ready to identify the article’s headline, date, author and URL if asked. When asked about your specific complaint, be direct and courteous -- don't shout, ramble or make imperious demands. Start by explaining the problem, follow up with a brief expectation of what you want to see happen and then supply the supporting documentation you have prepared when the editor requests it.Accept the editor’s decision, whatever it may be.
Newspapers won’t make changes unless they made a clear error. If, after discussing the matter and seeing the editor’s point of view, you still disagree with the decision, tell this to the editor, and ask what you need to do to get the result you want. The editor may give you some actionable advice, such as additional information you can collect. In lieu of this, say that you aren’t pleased with the decision. Either way, advise that you may be in touch again later to follow up. At all times keep a level head. Don’t threaten to sue or harass the newsroom.Ask the editor whether the story was published to the wire service for other outlets to run. Many stories are, and thus the same story might appear in other newspapers and websites across the nation. Ask whether the source newspaper will see that these other outlets make the appropriate changes or whether you have to do it yourself.
It is reasonable for you to insist that they correct their own mistake, but if the editor puts the onus on you, ask him to find out which outlets ran it and provide you with their contact information. If the editor doesn’t know where the story was published, the onus reverts to you to cast as wide a net as you can. You may have to contact each news website individually and repeat the process.
Also, rather than trying to suppress the link, the better way is to remove the link as there are very high chances that after some time the link will reappear on the first page which means that you’d have to go with the entire process once again. You need to get done with it as soon as you can and we can help you in this.
If there is negative content about you on social media sites like Facebook and Instagram then you can contact them and they will actually help you with the same within the specified time limit. However, when it comes to Google, as mentioned earlier

Ask at the end of the phone call for the editor’s direct phone number or the number of someone else you can call to resume the conversation.
Make any extra efforts the newsroom asked for, if applicable, to get the offending story corrected or removed. Once you have what the editor wants, call and try again.
Hire an attorney if you feel that the article must be corrected or removed and you are not successful on your own. A consultation will give you an idea of whether you have grounds to proceed with the threat of litigation.
Calling a newspaper, rather than using email or snail mail, yields the fastest and most dependable results. If you live or work near the newspaper’s offices, you can try visiting in person, but due to security fears you might not be able to get in.
