    Hello BHW-

    So, here is the situation I am working with. I need to remove / drop some bad results from the SERP. I would like to be able to do it myself, but I am almost out of ideas and ready to call in for help!

    I am working for a software company that was attacked with a negative online campaign a while back. The competitor used some classic tricks of the trade, but ironically did not do any link spamming. Although I was able to get most of the results removed / lowered, there are a few that will not move from the top results. The most powerful one is discussions.apple. This is the "holy grail unofficial support forum" that is moderated by the Mac Cult Members and not actual Apple Employees (I also use Mac, but these guys are crazy on a level I will never understand[​IMG])). So, no way they will ever remove anything with just a "please" and when I try to create my own thread in the same way to outrank the negative ones, mine gets trashed / flagged by these guys.

    What the competitor did was create a ton of fake accounts and have pre-loaded SEO rich content on a top level domain name like Apple. They would make a thread with the title "Is <Software Name> a Scam?" and then they would answer with 15-20 well worded pre-written responses and then close out the thread. Genius Right? It is unless you are on the receiving end [​IMG]. I have already used parasites, Wiki and others to knock out the low hanging fruit but I am looking for ideas, methods, or out of the box ways to push down the 3 worst results that will not take 5 years and Grandma's White Hat Club. All options are on or under the table. Please share some ideas in this thread or ping me in a PM if you have some top secret methods or service that can achieve results.

    Thanks!!!
