I'm wondering if anyone out there can help?
I'm a volunteer for a small charity. Our founder was subject to some online defamation (wholly unfounded) and now these sites come up prominently when anyone searches the charity or our founder.
The option to try to get the authors to take down their content involves hefty legal fees with no guarantee of success.
A quicker option seems to be to try to hide or remove the search results from google. 'Online Reputation Management' companies charge a fortune for this service. I am hoping that some kind soul might be willing to do it for cheaper??
I came across one company 'Webcide' that purported to use some sort of software that visits a site so many times a minute that it becomes 'a dead link' and is de-indexed by Google. They seem wholly undependable however. The morals of such an option are arguably borderline but seeing as the sites in question are offensive, and the authors have been asked nicely to take them down, I personally don't have a problem with it.
Anyway, if anyone reading this has any ideas on ways to help I would be very grateful.
We have an animal sanctuary, we feed the homeless, we teach meditation and yoga - it is a good charity doing good things with a good intention and we'd b very grateful for help.
