I'm having problems with a local competitor leaving bad reviews on a (my) g places page, and the finding the bad reviews helpful. I know the competitor, and how shady the guy is. What should I do? It's becoming a pain in the ass, and could be effecting business. I know his domain isn't that old, and I don't want to take that route (doing whatever it takes to get g to de-index the site). I want a good way to get my point across, and scare the shit out of him. I want him to let him know that I know what he's been doing. I haven't negatively commented on his page, ever. I check his rankings once a week, that's it. It wouldn't bother me that much, but it's for my families business. The guy wrote a couple of bad reviews, and it sent us to the bottom of page 4 for all of our keywords. Took 4 weeks to get us back, and now we're at number 2. I play everything by the book with this listing, and work hard creating everything manually. We outrank him, and I offered to do his seo work a long time ago. He said no, and I'm sure he's salty about us outranking him in his business type. I saw it this business type as a revenue stream and went after it. I had no choice, I was going to make money off of that industry no matter what. I want to get my point acrossed in an extremely firm manner. let him know I'm not f'n around. How should I do this? How would you do this? How would bhw handle this situation?
