    Hello Blackhat Experts,

    I need help in getting rid of a negative review for our company. This review was posted a year ago on http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/index.php and now it is coming on Google 1st page when someone type our company name, just below our company's website.

    Now, I'm seeking ways to get the thread deindexed by Google or other ways to get it removed from Google search.

    Request, If you experts can suggest some effective ways to get it removed early as possible.

    Please Help

    Deindexing is usually done through Google or the legal system. In the UK it will be different than in the US and I'm more familiar with deindexing and removals in the US. For a company, it's unlikely that you'll be able to get it totally removed or deindexed. Companies aren't afforded the same protection that individuals are.

    Suppression is entirely different and comes into play when something cannot be removed. Suppression involves pushing positive content onto page 1 so the negative drops to page 2 (or beyond). Most ORM companies focus on suppression, but know people (lawyer or company) who do deindexing and removals.

    In my years of experience this is almost never the case. I would be interested in hearing your experience in asking nicely and how it has worked.

    You can forget about, they will not remove it unless you pay money! You will have to live with it and avoid more coming otherwise start from scratch with a new domain and make sure you not get associated with the other!

    You can't remove your negative feedback But can pushed down on backpages of Google Search.

    Yeah you are right, Suppression is a different aspect and requires more time and effort.

    However, deindexing looks more promising, can you please elaborate a little bit on this? How it can be done? Willing to learn this method :)
