    It's been eons since I've posted here, so hello everyone.

    I've been attempting to remove an old page on TheFullWiki (relating to me) for about 1-2 weeks with no results. Contacting them via email has done nothing.
    Is there someone here knowledgeable on page removal with this website? I'm obviously not going to share the link but it's crucial it gets removed. Consider this the old "Myspace" profile written so long ago, it's just not good for professional image.

    Thanks.
    -Funky

    If you want to move it down just use rep management tactics. I've been having good luck lately with facebook business pages for this

    Yes, the easiest way, especially if its on an established site, is to rank things above it rather than try to lower its rankings. As recommended facebook pages rank well, YouTube vids with a little work do as well. Funny enough BHW actually ranks very well (though a BHW profile/blog post may not help your image either).

    This is about more than burying it, as my brand will grow very large & clients (+competitors) will likely find it easily. Is there no better method than directly pushing them until they respond?

    Is your personal information posted on this site? Is there any copyright infringement issues? Perhaps a DMCA takedown request would work for this situation.

    What you're looking for is obviously social engineering. You're going to have to contact them and make them take it down with a reward/punishment or some combination of the two.

    Generally for reputation management you just try to rank above it, if you push it down even just off page one hardly anyone will notice and any further than that nobody is going to see it unless they're doing in depth research on you. Some people may also try negative SEO, but again, if its on an established site/domain you're pretty much wasting your time with that.

    Pushing it down should be no problem with 1-2 months of reputable article building. But removing it completely is my goal.
    Is having my name and date/place of birth enough to demand removal? I don't recall ever posting it there but this is 7+ year old information. It still cannot exist with my brand image being important. What method is proven most effective in removal, I'd hate the headache of involving a lawyer.

    They're not breaking any laws publishing your name and birthplace. How would a lawyer help?

    Exactly.

    You're just going in circles here bro I already told you. Most people do rep management by burying it, if you need it completely gone there is not some SEO/tech method for that. You're going to need to contact them and get them to do it, I would imagine a very small amount of money or even asking nicely would get the job done.

    TheFullWiki.org:

    Phone: +61.282219721
    Fax: 8221 9721 Sydney

    You'll find people get a little flustered when you call them and they will usually help you if not time consuming and you're polite because they don't want you calling anymore.

    Appreciated. The method of removal is the same thing I've been doing, good to know.

    Just check their terms. If they make submitter fully responsible for content submitted (like most websites) the only owner of the data is YOU. They just keep it on behalf of you. If you request them removal of it and there is no paragraph in TOS saying otherwise - they are required to take it down by their own rules.
    Give them a call - that's the fastest way to solve this.
