    Hi,
    I have few articles from a newspaper that is indexed in google/yahoo/msn

    What is the best way to put down this links? I have 2 links that i don't want to be in search engine(not in top) if somebody search for specified keyword.

    Any idea?

    Thanks

    Do these articles already have a Lot of backlinks? If Not, you could blast them really Hard with scrapebox. They probably would at least go away for some time ;)

    No, they dont have many backlinks, but i'm afraid if I will blast, not to make them a better position instead of unrank :)

    Don't blast them with Sb. A few changes on the onpage Seo will be enough.

    If you don't want them showing up you can use the meta tag to noindex, nofollow them if you don't want them to be indexed by google.

    Not much you can do about that then. Really the only option is to ask the website owner to take down the article. Claim slander or something.

    Horrible advice.

    Also bad advice.

    What you need to do is build sites/pages that will rank higher than the newspaper articles. For example, take your friends name and register the .com/.org/.net and build sites.

    Then go to a bunch of business directories and web 2.0's and build sites with content related to his name. After a week or two you'll see some of those ranking naturally for the term. Build links to the pages/sites that are ranking to push them ahead of the newspaper.

    Sorry man, you're under a fallacy that building links to your competitor is a bad thing. That has literally NEVER been proven and for some reason people still believe it. There might be scattered cases of sites dropping while using SB, but nothing concrete. I've got hundreds of sites that prove the contrary.

    Ok, Thanks for that. But you must agree, that a site with no backlinks yet will probably jump back and around in Serps. I especially said for "some time" because this won´t last forever, if it happens at all ;)

    I would agree that sites bounce around, but that happens to established sites with thousands of backlinks as well, not just new sites with no links.

    Yes, sites bounce around in the SERPs for big, sudden link building. So will old sites that do not have the existing SEO in place to support a blast of shady links.

    A news paper is not going to budge. You're better off with a proper reputation management campaign like BHopkins said... Sign up for Blogs (WordPress.com, Blogger, etc), web 2.0 profiles (Facebook, LinkedIn) and fill out the profiles as thoroughly as possible. Now build links to it and optimize them for whatever keyword.. "Tom Smith," "Tom Smith Scam/complaints," etc. They'll slowly climb and eventually the first pages will be entirely content that you control.
