For Individuals: How to Deal With Newspaper Articles Ruining Your Online Reputation
This is perhaps one of the most essential problems in ORM in certain respects: how to deal with mistakes of the past that wind up in newspaper articles. With newspapers, they are extraordinarily protective of everything they ever publish, even if it’s very harmful to those they write about, or, the incident in question was very minor, such as a disturbance of the peace, or if it's something that happened many, many, years ago, but now since a newspaper wrote about it it’s showing up on a Google search for a specific individual.
In general, newspapers treat their own writings as if they were a sacred tome, the only real way to get them to directly change it is legally, but you can only do this if you can prove there was a misstatement of fact somewhere in their article, otherwise they are fully protected by the first amendment. Those who believe this is the case for their specific situation however, should look at our article on Libel. Another method is also to just ask them to change it, and this can be tried, but it in fact rarely works.
There is however, an effective way to deal with this problem that does work, for everyone – a targeted, affordable ORM Campaign; that represses the article on internet search results, driving it far down in search rankings, so it can no longer cause the person in question any further damage. This process is not just available for businesses, but absolutely for individuals as well. Call HopLite now, we have affordable plans for everyone and have a great deal of experience on how to deal with this very problem. Don’t wait, find out how we can help improve your Online Reputation.
