Slander – “Reputation Management”
Seems like a week doesn’t go by without a PI looking for help in this realm.
Even though I’m a bit-head, I’ve always had the sense that these situations were close to futile. Now I know why thanks to this excellent NY Times article.
If you get to the bottom of the article, there are two tips for real solutions.
- Ask Google to not index such results on the person’s name.
- Populate the net with positive search results.
More on this: There is a joke among SEO experts. “Where do you hide a dead body? On page 2 of a Google search page.” In other words, if you can create positive SEO, and have those search results dominate at least the first page of Google search results, 99% of people will not bother going to page 2.
