    I have a friend who's first and last name are the same as her father's middle and last name. However, it turns out her father absued her as a child and went to prison for it... but NOW when potential employeers google her name a bunch of old headlines and stuff about her abuse pop up in the results. It makes for an embarrassing situation for her when friends and employers look her up.

    So I was thinking that since it's a bad idea to use negative SEO to bury her father's sins (he deserves to be found because he did a very horrible thing) that I might get a few helpful people here to volunteer their time to help to rank her things like her myspace page and other relevant stuff when people google just her exact name in "First Last" method they find stuff about her in the 1st page instead of about her father.

    So if any of you would like to help PM me and I'll give you the name term to rank and you can help by ranking non-embarrassing things about her.

    Thank you.

    That is a difficult project. I would suggest you add every possible type of account possible to rank. Create a Youtube account + video (maybe of a testimonial for her work). Then Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace account will be useful. Then maybe have her write a blog that can be ranked.

    That should at least push any bad results to the bottom alone. Good luck. I'm not a fan of Google ruining reputations in general (just because it is a first impression that can't be defended), but this is worse as it isn't even her.

    EDIT: Worst case scenario she can change her name legally.

    Yeah it is rough, but its a odd case as it isn't even her reputation that is hurting her... it's just hard for her to be known by EVERYBODY as a victim. Sad case.

    Has she considered changing her name? I would not want to keep the name of a bastard that abused me.

    Edit: Did not see that brainstorm had mentioned it already. But yeah she could change her last name to her mothers maiden name and solve the problem.
