    This gym scammed me out of money and I want to SEO the search term :"gym name location" like "gold's gym LA" so that a scam report shows up. What's the best way to go about this? I was thinking about submitting a review onto one of those scam reporting websites and SEOing it. Also, what's the best way to SEO the article considering this is a place with less than 10 reviews on yelp/google/yahoo? I'm a complete newbie at SEOing btw

    The best way is to move on, and the time you should've spent ruining that guy could've been used to do something more productive.

    Oh, and welcome to BHW with your new account whoever you are :)

    Yup, got to agree, not really worth spending a lot of time just to get a bit of 'revenge'. Although theoretically it sounds like it would be easy to dominate the serps with a few keyword articles, spin and submit everywhere.

    No point though as you could be doing this to actually make more money :)

    If he scammed you, take him to court. No need to ruin his reputation.

    There is an ancient Chinese saying:

    "Before you embark on your journey of revenge, be sure to dig TWO graves."

    Besides, we do not allow "revenge threads" on BHW.

    Thank you in advance for your future compliance.

    Thanks. I would probably go back to playing COD instead lol. The only thing that gets me working is if I have to get food on the table or to get revenge.

    Where would I submit the articles to? What I planned so far: I'm going to write the article on ripoffreport, although there's already one for that gym on there. Then I'll backlink the report on every site on the first and second page of google (most of them are review sites).

    Alright I'll just phrase it another way then. How would I help SEO a local business to attract more customers :eek:?

    There's also an ancient Treeofl1 saying:

    Have you asked them for your money back or disputed it in person or anything yet?
