Citysearch Reviews can Devastate Your Business
Just as a good citysearch review can help your business, one bad citysearch review can devastate a business. Citysearch reviews are available on itunes, and citysearch reviewsappear on multiple other websites, such as yellowpages, businessfinder, mojopages.com, and judysbook.com. With this type of exposure, one bad review can devastate your business.
How We can Help Remove Citysearch Reviews
Some individuals have tried to contact citysearch to remove citysearch reviews by “reputation defense,” or having the reviews pushed down while posting better reviews on the top. We strongly, and cannot stress enough, the importance of not paying companies to publish false positive reviews. This is not only illegal in New York, but if you are caught, your company can be blacklisted forever. I suggest reading this great article from wikipedia on what is a conflict of interest.
Some companies have even gone as far to change the name of their business to “Business Removed” (see below).
We have had success suing writers of defamatory reviews in order to remove citysearch reviews. Unfortunately, not all bad reviews are defamatory. A defamatory review is a review that is presented as fact and false. If this is the case, we can have the review removed.
