    Hi there,

    I'm trying to push some negative reviews for my site down, that show up on ranks #3 and #4 for the brand as searchterm (think "mycompany"). The sites are somewhat authorative (#3 has 16TF/24CF 139 backlinks, #4 has 47/49 and 1000 backlinks). The subsites that are ranking have no links at all pointing to them.

    There aren't a whole lot of results for my brand (~1000 in total), #1 and #2 is my own site, #5 my facebook site, then some random posts about companies in my niche (the sites are authorative but my keyword or company name does not appear onsite).

    What are some good tactics? I'm thinking about trying to push up the other sites with GSA blasts and/or PBN posts (anchor text would be my brand name).

    I'm also making accounts on twitter, instagram etc. and link those back from my website.

    What else can I do to get the negative reviews down?

    Thanks!

    What your trying to do is something called Online Reputation Management or ORM. This topic is massive and there are many things that you can do for this. Rather than post a huge list here that is already available online I would suggest you Google everything you can about ORM and educate yourself.

    The things you're currently trying to do will work, keep creating social profiles for your brand and push them with some quality backlinks. You can also try to get guest posts on authority website, those will rank quickly.

    For anchors, not just use only one brand keyword but use variety of brand anchors.
