    I have a competitor who went to a popular forum in the retail niche I'm in, this client posted a fake review in a thread, now every few weeks he posts another fake (negative) review in the same thread.

    Looks like he also has done some backlink work as this thread no appears at the top of google when searching for terms such as mycompany reviews mycompany complaits, etc...

    I'm out of ideas for getting rid of this, anyone feel like brainstorming and tossing me some ideas to get rid of this,...

    The simple solution would be to simply post positive reviews to counter the negatives. Do what you need to do to get the positive results to rank better than his negatives.

    I have been tossing that around, problem is this thread is pretty firmly planted in the number 2 slot, would have to SEO and work on 9 sites with the chance of moving this off the front age,... which I will still do, just was wondering if maybe there was something I just haven't thought of yet =)
