    Our company?s reputation on Google isn?t the greatest; we have a Ripoff Report dating back to 2010 that is on the top three. My boss wants to have that pushed back as possible and only wants positive stuff on the first page and is giving me 30 days to do it. I?m updating our FB, going to get a twitter, thinking about hiring bloggers, and use PRWeb. Any blackhat suggestions?


    Thanks for your time.

    Tell him, if he wants results in 30 days then results will last only 30 days.

    What are you talking about? 301 redirects work wonders, just might not last very long if not done properly.

    Maybe rather than hiding the bad stuff, tell your boss to fix the problems?

    I love people that have no clue what they are talking about, and set crazy expectations. I mean not that it can't be done, but man. Maybe a little education is in line for him.

    +1 for this. Tell him to go back to business school, he isn't ready for the real world yet.

    Create all the profiles and citations you can(full and valid info, try using logos on all). That will solve your problem.

    You need to explain to him that the only way to drive these results off the first page is to create properties that out rank it.

    This is a long term battle, and will take time and investment.

    If your job depends on doing it in 30 days, pass this project to someone you don't like, or start looking for a new job.

    I would suggest building your social profile - fb, twitter and so on. Get in some local directories, review sites and so on - solve the immediate problems - fill the results with good things.

    also, I read a good idea on bhw recently- build a landing page on the site for customer reviews, and maybe offer some sort of incentive, then have an option for the visitor to click : happy/unhappy.

    if they click happy, have them directed to the review site of your choice, if they click unhappy, have them directed to a form on your site - so you get the details rather than them being published (then of course use that info to improve things).

    very important though - in 30 days, show your boss everything you have done by way of a metric, but advise him that you can't get major results in 30 days - well you can, but a long term quality over quantity approach will do much better.

    A) Boss sounds like an ignorant asshole.

    B) If he wants fast results he better be willing to give you a huge budget to get it done, cause it's gonna cost hundreds to do it that fast.

    I'm kind of going through what your boss wants you to do right now.

    A little bit ago, I really built out my social circle by making my social pages look really good. If you haven't already, build a Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Pinterest, Tumblr and Youtube accounts and promote those.

    Everything takes time and I don't know if you are going to be able to do it in 30 days, I could be wrong, but you will need to be doing some aggressive link building and that might just backfire.
