    Hey guys,

    One of my clients has two bad results come up when you G00gle his name.
    Something to do with a Felony... and his clients sometimes see that and it ruins his reputation... -.-

    Anyway, all of the results about him have no backlinks. So i took the top 30 urls (not including the 2 negative ones, which are in position 1 and 4 btw) and blasted them with scrapebox.

    It's been about a week, no change. What would u suggest for me to do to rank at least 10 above them so the bad results move to page 10. I don't really wanna do real manual SEO backlinking on each result, but i will if i have to.

    Thanks.

    Apart from the obvious, research those URLs and see what it would take to rank them, the only other thing I can think os is to create new pages/sites and rank them. If you include some review pages (comapnies like Cylex UK in the UK, but I am sure there are equivalents anywhere) are easy to rank. A couple of small mini sites with minimum work might be less work than investing SEO into other peoples URLs.

    I did this for a client, and it's a gradual process. Pick 2 -3 URL's (ranked worse than the negative pages) and build some decent links to them. Either blog comments or high PR links from elsewhere.

    Once those move above the negative links, pick an additional 2-3 URLS and repeat the process. Be sure to keep building links on all the pages that you've moved up, so they don't slide back. You can lighten it up on those, but keep a constant pressure on.

    Build Web 2.0 Properties with the exact businessname of your client.

    like
    businessname.blogspot.com
    businessname.weebly.com

    etc..

    Post 1-2 page articles with proper keyword density.

    Get them indexed and blast some links either using xrumer or scrapebox.

    Top 10 results on google should be yours in 1-2 weeks time.

    I got 40 Web 2.0 Properties built for $30 on DP.

    Each one came with a unique article , Relevant links and Images and even a video on each Property.

    I highly recommend you outsource the work , Digital Point is great for bargains.

    Good luck

    Interesting thread. It would be nice if you could update it with your results, once you get some, and with what you did.

    Ive done this for about 7 clients. It's just the same type of link building. I buy domains whenever possible and rank them.

    Be smart when you are dealing with a client.

    1) Don't aim for all top30 rankings in one day and make the problem disappear that easy!

    2) Pick 2-3 url that you would like to be above the bad reputation. Either it's a web 2.0 you create, your own website, your clients blog etc.

    3) Use your regular backlinkstrategy to rank these 2-3 url's (SB, Xrumer, SEnuke, BMD - whatever your usual strategy is).

    4) Within a week you should manage to get these results above the bad ranking.

    5) Now give your client a call and show him that you have managed to push down his bad reputation in G. with 2-3 position.

    6) Assure your client that you are able to push the 2 negative results down to page 4. But it's a slow process and it's will take a few month (2-3 positions every week).

    7) Rinse and repeat. Pick 2-3 new url's that you want to rank. At the end of the week, send a report to your client, to show that you have managed to push the 2 negative further down.

    Yes - is a slow process and yes you could do it quicker. But trust me - you will have a very happy client, who see results every week and his trust towards you will increase.

    Clients want to see quick results and they want to be updated every week, because then they know that you are working for them, and not just sitting at the beach. Always give your client small updates (unless he specific have stated anything else).

    Another problem, by overdeliver to fast is, that if you work hard and make the 2 bad posts drop to page 4 within a week. Then will your client get the wrong impression about your SEO work, and think it's easy to rank anything with little work! How do you think he will react, when he ask you to rank a highly competitive kw and you tell him that it might take 4-6 month before any major results will show? When you have just manage to de-rank a bad reputation within a week.

    Good luck bro.
