    Been working on online reputation management (ORM) for a few months for a client now. The keyword is his full name. Negative reviews on r1p0ffrep0rt and unh4ppyfranchis33. Which websites helped you rank above the negative articles? Here is my progress so far:

    Above negative article
    linkedin
    myspace
    facebook
    squidoo
    slideshare

    Right Below negative article
    youtube vid
    youtube profile
    dailymotion vid
    edm
    behance
    big g+
    blogspot
    lookuppage

    Tried wordpress, tumblr, pinterest but they don't seem to rank well. I have not used any automated software. All articles I write are 100% unique.

    Which websites helped you rank about the negative comments? Any other ORM tips will be greatly appreciated.

    Try a EMD of the name, and get a shitload of content on it. You will see steady progress, but over time, that site might have like 10+ positions in the first few pages of google.

    One of my ORM clients at the moment is doing pretty well (UK based). Here's some of the profiles that minimised the visibility of his negative review:

    linkedin.com
    prweb.com
    blogpost.com
    192.com
    directory.thesun.co.uk
    thisisbath.co.uk
    facebook.com
    twitter.com
    justgiving.com
    pinterest.com

    UK client as well, in my case this is what helped:

    twitter profile
    tumblr
    freeindex
    yelp
    cylex-uk
    sbwire
    qype
    yell

    Still pushing them only with bookmarks. :)

    edit: forgot about crunchbase and craigslist

    If it is UK based, qype.co.uk can be a good listing to hold, unless the client has angry customers.

    Seems some nice help. Just had a question? Are these country specific, since the discussion shows good result on UK base.

    This is the exact same problem I've been having. Someone with a high PR page got into the top five results of my client's name and has been parked there for months. The client already has a bunch of content in their name spread across several domains, with heavily-used FB and Twitter profiles, etc. so none of that helped. Originally, I was able to push the negative stuff down with a ton of EMD backlinks via RankBuilder, Scrapebox and SE Nuke but the Sept/Oct G updates completely wiped out all my work.

    I'm trying to rebuild with lots of link diversity but using a person's name as a keyword is extremely difficult - spread it around too much and bloggers/webmasters know exactly where to complain. It's also really hard to embed contextual links with a name as opposed to a normal keyword. I've regenerated thousands of backlinks but they don't seem to be working - without the name in the anchor text there's no weight to the search term.

    Other than the sites listed above, does anyone have any experience they would like to share in tackling this problem?

    Are there any sites ranked above the negative article? If so which ones?

    Yes, the money site is always #1, usually followed by Twitter or Facebook.

    When I first created the edm it ranked above the negative article with a few articles on my site. Then after the update by g, i sit on 3rd page and about 15 articles on my site.
    Still looking for more sites that rank high or any other orm link building techniques and etc.
