    Hey guys,

    I typed my name in google and the first result is my linked in profile, but the 2nd result is from a legal firm (called vlex) that says some nasty things that I did back in college (drugs, doi, and some public property damage)
    This is not good for my online reputation, what can I do to remove or, at least put it in the 3rd or 4th page of results?
    Thanks

    Use it to your advantage and show how you changed your life around? What does it matter. Mel Gibson, Tiger Woods etc etc.

    Why fight mistakes you made in college and was a kid?

    Make profiles on every big site you can and cross link them and link build to them... just push it off the page.

    Hi,

    The answer is it will definitely affect your business and image.
    But there are ways to get rid of them
    one of them is building many web 2.0 profiles like tumblr,pinterest
    post many useful things on your account.
    use Syndwire for multiple site posting.
    wait for the result.
    Iam not sure but try this
    I pray for it will work and bro dont repeat your druxxx stuffs you can be better than this.

    I thought someone was going to offer a free guest post on a high authority website. That would be awesome.

    Pretty sure google has an option where you can request to remove it and claim it has personal info on it. If possible, put some of your info in the comments section if it has one and they will most likely remove it

    If this worked it would be the craziest Negative SEO attack ever. I dug a little deeper and Google wont do removals for NAP info without a court order... but if it was a credit card number or a picture of your signature they would do it. ... but lets be real for a minute... that is a REALLY BAD IDEA and is probably illegal since faking credit card fraud is still probably fraud.

    But since it is plausible I am adding it to my list of negative SEO attacks.

    I remember reading about that method. I believe someone here used it to remove a RipOff Report result about their business.

    The idea is to "post your social security number" on the website, and then go to this Google page and select the following options:
    You then fill out the form and wait to see if Google removes the result.

    But then you'd have to post your SSN on their website. That just sounds like a bad idea in general.

    No, you don't really post your SSN, you post a fake one. That's why I put that part in quotes.
    Anyway, I actually found the thread I was referencing.
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/how-ive-deindexed-eight-out-of-ten-ripoff-reports.802968/
    According to @Sherbert Hoover, it worked at 8/10 times for him.

    Though he advised everyone not to use it on RoR at the end of the thread.
