    I am not a company. Someone wrote something about me on Twitter last year and has not updated the site since then. (of course Google and Twitter will not help) I have built my own social pages with a Twitter account with more than a thousand followers. I have an active LinkedIn account, and Facebook.I have built blogs which seem to now rank on page 1 when you search my name. I had this offending comment on Page 2 of Google but now it keeps coming back and is now actually ranking as the top search result. Can anyone tell me what is going on? Any tips? I am now using Google sites and these have gone straight to Page 1. I just need this awful Twitter post to go to Page 2

    I worry because when you do a Google search of my name it comes up. WHen I put in for a job the first thing the prospective employer sees is the Twitter rant. It has cost me a stack of good jobs.

    What you write/post on the internet is read by 1000s of people. Show your twitter page.

    It's NOT my Twitter page. It is someone else's Twitter page. I am trying to push their post about me to Page 2. No matter what I do it keeps coming back to the top of Page 1

    It shows first because it has the highest CTR when someone searches your name.
    Regretfully, people look for the negative first. So when someone searched your name (or something related), and saw that post, it was the thing they always clicked.... Hence Google evaluated it as the most relevant result (based on users' behavior), and it eventually outranked everything else about you.

    so is there nothing I can do about this? Can I pay for clicks that will do more clicks? Or can I do something else

    Depending on the exact nature of the criticism, maybe you have grounds to threaten to sue them for damages through misrepresentation - or twitter/google if account is inactive and they don't have it removed.

    best to ask them with a cash incentive to take it down only way.

    or go the hard road and push it down but will take much SEO work and many websites.

    Many charge 5k minimum for this work like I say it not easy or cheap.

    your be so surprised how many keywords are used and how many websites are needed and SEO social and backlinks to get this despair far down the chain.

    if you got the cash can try @MisterF as he no of the person to help .

    good luck.

    Have you created your own websites? yourname.com/yourname.co/yourname.xyz etc? Claimed all your know em profiles and built links to those? YouTube channel? Press releases? Twitter should be no problem to push down.

    That's how one my ex company buries all the bad reviews by their ex developers and clients (lol don't ask me why.. I left them for the same reason). They are quite good at it, and I must say; it works pretty well.

    Yep, I do quite a bit of reactive ORM and these are the first things I do.

    Maybe i am being impatient. This is what I have done. I have built 2 x twitter accounts. 1 has 1500 followers now, the other 250. I tweet each day. I built a facebook. I built 6 Google Sites. I have started to pay to get back links done for all the sites just below the offending Tweet. At one stage I had pushed it to page 2 but now it is back at the top. WTF

    I am NOT a business. The problem is when I put in for a job they Google search me and this crap comes up.

    More twitter accounts and more followers isn't going to help for Google. Building 6 Google sites and building out a Facebook isn't going to help much either. You need to diversify. Do the things I mentioned.

    sorry for the noob question. What is an em profile? And buying the domains is the next step I planned to do. I have built YouTube channel. I am off work next week so I guess I will be building websites. So do you claim all the extensions? .com .net .org .info is that what you mean?
