An ever increasing amount of clients are looking for ways in which to beat out a negative free wordpress.com blog (or other free platform) from the first page of the results. In many cases the free WP blog is aimed at the brand name. I am looking for inspiration in order to accomplish this. The way I see it there are two principle methods; 1. Create a load of web 2.0 properties with some additional link building to the making use of the brand name to crowd out the site in question to the 2nd page 2. Make use of automated backlinking to the negative site in order to bring it down (I am thinking AMR blasts, SB Xrummer etc). Are there any other methods which you have found worked well to bring down the results a WP sub domain specifically? Cheers.
