    I have a client that when you search their name, at the bottom of the SERPs under Google's "Searches related to: client's name", there's a related search with some unpleasant keywords following my client's name. In this case, it's not related to my particular client but rather a person with the same name, also if you do the mentioned search, there's not even any related information at all.

    It's not a very popular search, but obviously has/had been searched enough to show up as a related search.

    Is there a way to get rid of that particular related search phrase? Or do I just have to wait for Google to adjust its relevancy?


    Thanks.

    Go to every internet cafe in your area and Google for "clients name is awesome". Then do this routine again but this time search "clients name ey he is the best"

    repeat this as long as only positive things appear on google suggestions. May take a few years, though. ;)

    Cubancohibas,

    As illustrated by monchichi, getting these related searches removed would take some unconventional and persistent work. There really is no practical way to remove these. Another approach would be to push as much positive information about your client out there as possible. That way, searchers who may recognize him would see good information first and might not notice the negative stuff.

    Here are some good tips on negative SEO,

    Hope that helps,
