An internationally renowned business consultant contacted ReputationDefender because comments he had made on a news show had been taken out of context and used against him, resulting in negative follow-up coverage.
Despite ongoing media attention, the ReputationDefender Special Projects team successfully cleared the first page of his search results of all negative content.
Financial services firm maligned
A team of entrepreneurial financial experts launched an innovative company that gives consumers more control over their credit. Unfortunately, just as the young company started to achieve its first successes, it was mischaracterised by the press.
The ReputationDefender Special Projects team aggressively targeted the company’s search results, pushing all negative content off page 1 within three months.
Defamed law practice
A law firm specialising in financial law was targeted by an online smear campaign, mounted by another firm facing bankruptcy. Although the targeted firm won legal relief from its attacker, negative third-party commentary continued to rank online, leading to the loss of important clients.
We were able to suppress the firm’s negative content from page 1 of the Google results within six weeks, reversing the firm’s losses and allowing it to rebuild its client base.
Philanthropist faces threats
A prominent financier and philanthropist contacted us following a robbery in which his passport was stolen. The individual was distressed that the thief had been able to track him down and break into his car. He was also worried that his search results painted a one-sided picture.
