A post on Seroundtable here show how SEOs are being asked to remove the names off the Top 10 listings. This service is call Online Reputation Management, we have worked with clients in the past to solve issues were Google will rank negative content about a person/product/company etc. You have spent years building up your business online and all of this hard work can quickly be undone if someone publishes a negative review about your company. Methods to fix the issue include getting the content removed and out ranking the content (pushing it down the results).
Regarding Ashley Madison many “big names” have already been outed which makes its a massive job.
If you need any help looking into getting content removed OR pushed down the results then let us know.
