PRLog - July 29, 2010 - Ripoff Removal is a growing trend in the online reputation management field. There are very few things a company can do in order to protect themselves against a Ripoff Report. In fact, anyone can file a Ripoff Report against anyone and ruin their online reputation for good. A lot of companies will file false Ripoff Reports about their competitors. A good percentage of Ripoff Reports are simply untrue claims about a company from an unruly customer. Most companies that have Ripoff Reports filed against them do not even realize that they are losing business until they get a phone call from a customer telling them that they found the company's Ripoff Report on the first page of Google. This is an unfair system and unless you have the right company handling your online reputation management, you lose a lot of money.
Why is a Ripoff Report so Damaging?
Google considers ripoffreport.com an 'authority website' and gives them a priority listing above almost any other competing website. This means that if a Ripoff Report is filed against your company name, most of the time the ripoffreport.com page will be right under your company's website in the search engine results when someone types in your company's name. Most business owners don't realize that over 75% of customers looking to purchase big ticket items (over $100) will search for a company's or business owner's name in Google first. Most people will search the name after they are presented with a quote from the company they're researching. This means that you can exhaust your resources consulting a client and spend the time customizing a quote for them with no shot at actually making a sale. Lets face it, when someone sees the word 'Rip Off' right next to your company's name in Google there is an extremely low chance that person will actually give you money.
So, how do you Remove Ripoff Reports?
You can't. That's right, there is no way to actually remove a Ripoff Report once it is listed. Ripoffreport.com has an unbending policy to not ever delete ripoff reports from their server once they are filed.
But don't worry, Grow Clicks have a solution. What if that Ripoff Report was hidden all the way back to page 5 of Google? Do you think anyone would even know it was there? The truth is, most people don't even go to page two of the search engines to look for information about a company. In fact, even the most skeptical consumers won't get anywhere near page five of Google. That means that a hidden ripoff report in Google is basically a removed ripoff report for all intensive purposes.
