    1stly This forum is intense for seo and orm. I've learnt huge amounts, and so I'm hoping for a little guidance in the ways of the AU googling. Short story, about 6 years back I made a huge mistake and spent some time at her majestys pleasure in one of Australia's secure resort facilities. 24/7 security, no pool, no views. Sometimes room service if there was a riot in another part of the prison. Anyway, I've managed to outrank news stories about me on all but the AU version of Google and need some help there.

    The Problem.
    1. My name is unique, I'm the only one with my surname.
    2. It's only AU google that still shows the stories. I've pushed the news way down on Yahoo, Bing etc
    3. Searches for my name are low according to analytics like 10 or less per month. LOL it's probably me and prospective employers.
    4. There's three articles, Australian papers, AU sites from 5 years ago.

    What I've done so far.
    1. Asked the papers really really nicely to take down or deindex the articles. None have agreed.
    2. GSA SERd my web 2.0s/twitter/fb/linkedin and link networks and tiered networks (but the GSA box was in the USA using US/EU proxies)
    3. Got mynameCOM and all the social sites I can think of using my full name and crosslinking them as naturally as I can. Linkedin isn't outranking the top news article on me.
    4. Scraped some aussie blogs/forums and started posting to them with my full name.

    I feel like I'm in a low competition keyword area (my name) but up against big sites (Major Aussie papers) so I reckon I should be able to beat them right? Any suggestions? I'm going to put a lot of effort into making accounts and posting actively on anything that ends in an AU to see if that helps. I'm also posting from AU ISPs and proxies for this.

    Try to publish a Press Release about you. There are some really good PR services on BHW. If it doesn't work change your surname.

    1. Contact google for those news articles and say there's personal info disclosed that you dont want disclosed. Also tell them you tried contacting the newspaper and they didnt help. Try to comment on those websites and leave a SSN equivalent or something if its auto approve, G will remove them from the index (get creative here)

    2. Invent a few more people with the same name so its no longer unique - the Joe Blow pro swimmer, the Joe Blow pro wrestler and Joe Blow the accountant - each with social profiles, press releases and such

    3. Rank all from 2.

    I'm liking all these suggestions! I've tried getting them removed from google but the big G is pretty cluey these days. I even did a short series of removing random other stuff from the web unrelated to me beforehand over a week or so, just so it wasn't the only request. I'm not sure if I can modify the pages themselves with comments but I'll check it out. More creativity is required this time I reckon. Maybe making some more me's and diluting the brand a little is a good idea. Can't hurt at this point.

    I don't have much of a budget, because I don't have much of a job LOL. I am going to change my surname in the future but I'm under 'post release restrictions' so I can't change my name, own a company, leave the country, all that sort of stuff until next year. Screws you up much longer than the original sentence but I didn't go to prison for helping the elderly cross the road or any good deed so I have to suck it up and work inside the rules.
