    If the review is on the ripoff report site owned by another person.
    Options:
    1. h@<k1ng that site and removing it yourself
    2. adding more reviews to bury it down deep, and hopefully onto the next page
    3. contacting the 'ripoff report site' and telling them why the review is a hoax and asking them to remove it.

    Keep in mind its not easy to change what you don't own.

    Ripoff Reports does not remove user published content and can't be sued due to it being posted by a user, they're protected.

    You have to hire a good reputation management company to push it down within the search results for you or be really good at SEO yourself.

    And just an FYI..... Ripoff reports are NOT the easiest to push down. They're also not necessarily the most difficult. I know because we've been doing online reputation management for about 5 years now....

    But it can be done by using blogs, web 2.0 sites and even online news stories & press releases. You have to get keyword related content into the web properties then SEO the heck out of them.

    Hope this helps.

    Who said they cant be sued? They may state that but nobody in the United States is excluded not even them. There are many reports on the net about the owner of that site and how he thinks his untouchable. He has been to court so many times but he doesnt tell you that. Do your research.

    Anybody can be sued over ANYTHING. It just depends on whether the judge will hear the case out, or decide against the owner.

    First thing, never respond to a ROR filing. Bullies always want a reaction. There is no limit to the number of reports they can file. You respond and usually they'll file more.

    Secondly, if the person reporting you is a business, then return the favor. Make fake accounts and blast the shit out of them. ROR never verifies anything so doesn't matter. You'll be doing future businesses a favor. I've seen many businesses run and report another business and when the shit is returned to them they have an "uh oh" moment realizing anyone can blast their ass.

    Thirdly, don't sweat ROR so much; they don't hold NEAR the power they used to. Those top ranking complaints are easy to bury with just a little bit of SEO work. Start a good comment campaign, get fake accounts everywhere and have all of them commenting all over the web what a great business you are. Then get link campaigns to push those to the top.

    Fourth, get all those website analytic sites blasted. They'll scan your site and flood the top pages of weak sites with analytic and domain value links. That will push ROR down the list.

    Fifth go and get a FB fan page created and get some fake fans. 1,000 will do it. Then use some fake profiles to brag up the business. FB fanpage with exact name will rank on that first page in SERPs and again push ROR off the damn thing.

    That's a good start.

    LAST THING you want to do is screw around with online reputation companies. 95% are a scam. You'll be getting emails from businesses affiliated with ROR wanting to "help" you fix the problem for $2,000 to $5,000. Tell them to fuk off. They allow this shit so they can blackmail you into paying them. Just do these 5 steps and in 30-60 days those ROR links will be buried in serps.

    Have your good report links ready when potential customers call and ask them to refer to your abundant good references and not believe the one jackass that tried to blackmail you. Make up some horrendous story about the jackass and how his post is nothing but a blatant lie trying to blackmail you.

    Oh and one more thing: don't do any of that BS bad link blasting to the ROR report that so many recommend. Sure it will drop them for a week or month but when they come back you'll have twice as much work to do because they'll be very strong. Don't blast a single link to ROR pages like so many recommend. You'll regret it in a couple months. ROR doesn't have anything that will keep that complaint at the top with just a little SEO work since the recent Panda updates. Those ROR links fall fast without any support and new links pushing to the top.

    Obviously the first 2 posters had no idea about RoR while the latter posts hit it pretty much on the head accept with the comment that most rep management companies are a shill which is not true there are a few really good ones out there but most of the ones sending emails via an automated script are not the good ones are ranked at the top of the serps with the exception of re%^(a*ion.com who is horrible and can't defend their own name.

    All RoR's are not treated equally ones that have good obl's lots of comments, optimized titles and so forth are harder to move. 99% of people none the less SEO's struggle to figure out how to bury them. There are 3 different approaches that we have taken (all legal sorry rexxfield) to get rid of the undesired result.

    Also you can not sue Ed Magedeson or whatever the fuck his name is. No case has ever ended up in court because it settles outside of it or the communications decency act sets in and explains why you will lose.

    sorry for my pointless rambling.

    A threat of legal action makes 40% of that kind of people shit their pants, especially if they are a company.

    Just make up some complicated law stuff and shove it up their... well, you get it.

    Also, if you are reading this, go above and re-read kvmcable's post because he is saying a lot of true things. The re-read it again, take a nap and make the decision.

    Never act on a hot head.

    Just speaking from personal experience here. I've only had about 3 different reputation management companies contact me about clients I represent and after researching them I found they were connected to ROR. I'm sure there are legitimates ones out there also - they just never contacted me.

    One last point. Most ROR report power comes from the time the report is on the home page of ROR. So again, never respond to a report even if it's months old. You'll push it back to the home page to pick up more juice.

    Once it falls off the home page it SERP value falls tremendously. Even if it has related keywords in the title tag (H1 tag on ROR), it will need off-page SEO support to beat out even a silly analytics link. Figure out the keywords optimized in the ROR title and either post articles, fan pages or website inner pages optimized for those keywords. Most jackasses that report businesses don't know a thing about on-page optimization and while the H1 tag is strong it's nothing when measured up to an optimized inner page on a website. Funnel some good links to that inner page and ROR link doesn't stand a chance of out-ranking it.

    Really a good SEO person should be able to push an ROR complaint off page one in a week if they don't respond and the originator doesn't do follow-ups.

    Best of luck - I learned most of this the hard way :(
