    Hey folks

    I have an article about my business which is very negative. I have a lot of people - real people, no fakes - talking very well about my business. Unfortunately this negative article (which is not exactly a review but rather an "opinion" based on no real experience) ranks on the first page for my brand.

    I already figured out that I need to do so called "reputation management". I assume that I just need to build backlinks to the positive reviews. I thought about backlinks from web2.0 and a few social booksmarks. For the anchortext I planned to use my brand for the strong links and generic text to diversify with the weaker links.

    Will that work? I fear that it will be very slow and this article is really harmful to my reputation.

    How about sending a shitload of spamlinks to the negative articles, will that bring it down?

    Any other suggestion?

    Friendly advice: Don't spam the negative article, it might just strengthen it even more if it's placed on an authority site.

    Shoot me a message with the search term, OP. I may be able to give you a hand. Last week I handled someone else's bad Google result they were about to kill themselves over with five minutes and a three-line email. True story.

    If that doesn't work, a second vouch for Brandon (@BHopkins).
