    Dear members,

    my business is the target of many competitors because we are the leader in the industry we operate. As a result I can see people on the Internet posting bad reviews about our company on blogs and I suspect these comments to be created by our competitors with fake accounts.

    Is there a way that if we use black hat seo 'AGAINST' these blogs/forums to get them penalized by Google and have their rank move down?

    Let me know what can be done. Thanks this will be very much appreciated.

    That's online reputation management, you may try to outrank them with web 2.0, parasites, and good reviews sites. Not an easy job but that's the only solution to keep your business clean

    Is any of the 'bad stuff' true? If so, fix the source, and not only does your problem go away but your business improves overall.

    Negative SEO is the other method. Unlike reputation management, its a gamble. You either win, or lose big time.
