Challenging and Removing Content in Google

Negative online content can rank highly in search results and damage your online reputation.

For businesses and brands, negative, defamatory or libellous content can have a devastating effect on consumer trust in your business and on your sales. The longer negative content stays online, the greater the damage, and if the site it is posted on is high authority – such as a UK media site – it further increases the number of people who will potentially see it.

For individuals, unwanted content can badly affect your personal and professional reputation, and challenging and removing this content can be a complex area.

The last thing businesses and individuals want is to be associated with anything negative, and we can help.
