    Hey guys

    I have an offline business and i had a great listing on a citation site. A fellow competitor left me a bad review (or it could have been a mistake by another companies customer)
    I managed to remove my account at the citation website so I no longer have an account or reviews at that site..

    BUT when you search for my business name in google the link to the citation site (and the frigging bad review!!! :() shows second on google search after my listing!

    So my question, how do I remove it? is there a way of getting googles crawler to crawl the citation site so that it see's there;s nothing there?

    Its been a week now and the link still shows in goolge. I'm going to create a new listing on the citation site tomorrow to see if it helps!

    thanks for any help

    just so i make it clear.

    The link to the citation site is in the SERPs, with the bad review in the discription, but when you click it it takes you to a dead 404 page.

    There's really nothing you can do about it. Maybe put the site link into the google keyword tool to have another crawler take a look? I'm not sure if that would even work.

    Is there a way to get the xml site map for the site?

    From my personal experience, there seems nothing google likes less than a site blasted with thousands of fake shitty google +1 votes.

    If competition is pretty low for your brand name, just create a Twitter/Blogspot/Googlesites/Weebly/Tumblr etc. with your brand name in the URL and spit out some content and you should push that stuff back to page 2 as long as it's not optimized too well.

    Is that for my competitor or the citation listing page? :)

    Thats a good idea mate, but on the top 10 serps I also have three other citation sites that have my good reviews! I would like them to stay in the top 10.

    This bastard bad review is 2nd in the G and there's content on the page.

    The citation site in question is freeindex. I asked them kindley to remove the review, and I gave them a ton of reasons and proof why it was a fake review and they said they dont take down reviews! angry face!

    Competitors or anything, if you want to bubble a website, google +1 is the way to go.

    You should post like 5 other fake reviews to bump the old one off. Usually review comments are sorted by date.

    You could ignore it, soon Google will drop it out of the serps, all the problem is, is that it is just the copy stuck in the cache It will drop out and be gone someday. At least it's not there anymore.

    If you redo the page, it may not fall out.

    You could just build properties to push it down, too. Start pages and sites with "business name on tumbler", "business name on flickr", ect. Basic rep management.

    If it is already a 404 page you just have to wait for google to refresh it's cache of it. No sense putting a lot of effort into pushing it down a few pages..

    How long has it been since you removed the review?

    Since I'm assuming there aren't many inbound links to that particular page, google wont crawl it as often. You can set up a temporary blog with a link to the page (or any other property with a link to the page). Then blast the blog with some cheap links to get it crawled, and delete the blog once the page is reindexed.

    You can also try pinging google with the url to get it reindexed sooner. hxxp://blogsearch.google.com/ping There are some other services, not sure if google still even follows pings.

    Cheers!
