    I've got a problem with a competitor who has posted a malicious page about my site on another site that shows up below me on several searches. I can't go through legal routes to have it removed, and am currently looking at boosting other pages for these searches to lower it in the rankings, but I've been wondering if there are any ways to get google to remove it completely.

    Would I be able to do something like buy some paid links to the offending page and then report it to google? Would that get it removed or at least lowered in the serps significantly?

    I'd welcome any suggestions, thanks

    all you can do is boost the other pages.

    There's no way of lowering the credibility of another page at all? Given the complexity of google's algorythm and how much it relies on inbound links that seems a little difficult to believe...

    If you had thought before hand about your username,
    and instead used

    then you would have had no problems :)

    Why can't you go through legal routes? If he is defaming you or saying malicious things that aren't true you have a right to protect yourself.

    If it's true, well...
