One of my clients has a particularly vindictive competitor. The competitor created a post in a popular forum related to his industry, talking trash about my client. The thread came to life and a lot of people posted to it, believing the competitor's lies. My question: any ideas for how to bury this forum thread from the SERP's? The thread is ranking #2 for my client's brand name. They are a brand new client so it will take me some time to build authority to their site. I've gotten 8 out of the top 10 positions using web 2.0 profiles but that forum won't budge from #2. I wondered if I could do a 301 redirect from a penalized page to that site to see if I can take it down? If not, any other ideas? Please help! Thanks so much!
