    Hi Guys

    I need some advice on how to help a client of mine. I'm beginning to get q few clients in the offline world. One was a word-of-mouth recommendation.

    So here's the story.

    My client who we shall call John Doe, has been a businessman for many years. A number of his companies went into liquidation (Chap 11)
    although he does have some success in a particular niche.

    He has a particularly bad relationship with one of his ex-partners who we shall call Jack Brown. Jack decided to make life very difficult for my client.
    He registered JOHNDOE.COM with Godaddy and appears to have hosting with Dotster. The site is scurrilous and could be libellous although it would be difficult because most of the stuff posted is true :(

    We need to take the site down. What would you suggest? Lawyers are expensive.

    A more white/grey hat approach would be to create other websites JOHNDOE.CO.UK, .net, .info and get into some reputation management. Get the guy/outsource to write a book and get it published. Articles, Linkedin, all the usual and get his profile high on the new sites - plenty of backlinks and get his sites to rank higher than the .COM

    But I'm open to blackhat approaches. I just don't know what.

    Any ideas please?

    Cheers

    1. Make a backorder on the domain-name - if he ever forgets to renew it, it's yours!

    2. Beating him in SERPS as you say yourself, is a brilliant idea. Check how many backlinks he has etc., and outrank him. Remember though, that you need to rank 10 websites to the first search page of google to be really successful.

    3. Make a WHOIS lookup, and see where he is hosting his website. Then contact both his webhost and his domain registrar, and act like a lawyer - tell them that the website contains "False statements about my client" and blah blah. Social Engineering is a powerful tool.

    4. Fight fire with fire! Make a website with HIS name in the URL, and write a lot of crap about him - make it rank, and make him notice it. Now he might be open for negotiation ;)

    Whois the domain, find his real address and throw a petrol bomb through his window.

    Reputation management is a good idea, I'm doing it for one of my client and we are fighting with authority domains with PR 6-7 and HUGE Traffic, We are fighting from January and successfully pushed those sites to No 11. though they do make guest appearances to first page, So to be safe you need to acquire top 15 positions atleast.

    But I liked the "Fight fire with fire! Make a website with HIS name in the URL, and write a lot of crap about him - make it rank, and make him notice it. Now he might be open for negotiation" Idea of Alphatwin , In this way you can force him to shut down the website.

    Sounds like you need better clients.

    Seriously though, a C&D might be all you need. Sometimes the threat of legal fees is enough to stop someone, especially if it's unwarranted.

    The problem you have is it sounds like it is warranted, and this ex partner has a legitimate axe to grind. This leads me back to my first conclusion that you need better clients.

    Use the law, man and you need to grow up or you'll end up getting sued or with a boyfriend in prison one day, sorry to say.
