Ripoff Report - HELP!

9 replies
I have been moving a ripoff report from page one in June to page 3 of Google today. Today it is back on page one. No one is back linking it nor has anyone added content to it. Why would Google just move it from page 3 to pg 1??? Thoughts out there please?

    I would suggest that some of your pages have been diminished in value in the Google algorithm.

      If you have a client who has a bad review in the RipOff Report website, the easiest way to keep that out of sight and out of mind of potential customers is to make it disappear deep into Google's search results.

      If you contact RipOff report to remove the bad review, that guy charges 5-figure fees to remove a page.

      So most opt to try to push the listing deep into the bowels of Google's search results.

      It is simply SEO, where you create a new page, then make it outrank the bad listing. Then you create another new page, rinse and repeat.

    To be more specific the ROR link was on page one. We created social media properties and super optimized landing pages, which rose in the SERPS and suppressed the ROR to page 3. Today it popped up on page 1. Why woudl Google suddenly do this?

      How long have you been doing SEO? And, SEO for money?

    The problem is the RipOff Report is a big beast in the serps. Tons of pages, tons of domain and page authority.

    Rep, you'll need to keep fighting the good fight. Creating lots of pages of quality content and building links back to those pages.

    As to answer your question about how Google can do this? They can do whatever they want, you are playing in someone else's backyard. They call the rules and you have to play along.

    This is one of the facts of marketing a business online. One day your site could be #1 and then tomorrow gone.

    By the way, this very thing happened to me. Bumped my client's ripoff to page 3 and a bout two weeks ago it came back.

    Are you talking about super-optimized pages on your client's website? Those should be built off-site.

    And only social-media properties? Really? Social media tends to be a short-term benefit in Google, and more valuable for building relationships with existing and future customers.

    Google does that, changes to their algorithm most likely. It is common for websites to dance even if you don't back link to them..

    Be patient. The operator of Rip-Off Report will be in jail soon. FBI is investigating now and the Justice Department is collecting evidence in at least 3 different cases I've read about online.

    Best strategy is not to get on there in the first place!
