How long does reputation repair take?

The length of time required to fix a search result problem depends on the issue. For example:

  • Removal of negative online content can take as little as 1 week. Most online content cannot be removed, but when it can the timeframe varies. We can usually remove something if Reputation X has worked with a publisher before. If not, it can take months and depends on many factors. If we do not believe something can be removed from Google or another search engine, we will let you know in advance. 
  • Push Down Search Results: Brands usually start to see results within two months. But it takes about 10 months to push negative web content off the first pages of search results. That's an average. Some campaigns are much faster, others take more time. For example, very strong websites (such as major news outlets and high-profile blogs) will need more time. A lesser-known blog will take less time. 
  • Improve online reviews: It takes about two weeks to start to see online reviews improve. The amount of time it takes to make big improvements takes longer - usually months. Another factor that affects how long reviews take to improve is the starting point. If reviews began at one-star, it will take months to get to three or four-stars.

What happens if something can't be removed?

If Reputation X can't get rid of problem web content, we can usually reduce its visibility. This is called search engine suppression - it pushes Google and other search results down. 

When a bad search result is weakened compared to others, better search results can be pushed up. Not only does the damaging result move down, but positive content takes its place. It is both repair and online brand building. 

How much does repair cost?

Prices for a simple removal from a publisher we already have a relationship with start at $3,000 one-time. Prices for Wikipedia page repair begin at $5,000 per month for at least six months. The cost of a full reputation repair campaign starts at $3,000. Complex, global, or multi-language campaigns start at $10,000 per month.

This is due to the nature of the problem and variables. We've been helping brands improve online reputation for over ten years. We've seen it all. We will be honest and let you know if we don't think we can help.

Methods used to repair search results

Removal of negative content at the source

Negative online content can sometimes be removed at the source or from search results. When content is deleted from the website it is hosted on, it's a source removal. This method for getting rid of problem web content often reveals a violation of terms of service.

Direct removal from search engines

Some content can be removed from Google or other search engines. This includes content violating search engine rules, copyrighted content, and other legally protected content. This type of removal is known as de-indexing

Push negative search results down to reduce visibility

If problem search results cannot be removed, they can often be "pushed down." This method of reputation management is known as suppression. Positive content is created and/or promoted above the negative until it is rarely seen.

Improve online brand

Sometimes search result sentiment needs improvement. Brands are often confused with those of competitors. Sometimes they simply have a weak online profile or even none. Reputation X improves an online brand by strengthening the best parts of search results. This can include online profiles, websites, articles and other media related to the brand.

Counterpoint development

When search results only tell one side of the story,  we often create a "counterpoint." A counterpoint narrative is a temporary measure to balance the story. Its a counter-narrative in search results so our clients don't have to keep explaining what actually happened. Prospective customers and stakeholders can see the counterpoint right in search results. When it's time, we take it down.
