Google’s Penalties Against Still In Force After 18-Months

2020 Update: RipOffReport’s drop in Google ranking still in effect. 

Around November 8th, 2018, there was a massive drop in ranking for RipoffReport and other similar complaint websites. We started noticing when monitoring results for our Online Reputation clients. We saw a significant drop in all client cases with RipOffReports. In some cases, the articles disappeared altogether and for other client cases, RipOffReport dropped off to page 2 or further in Google. There has been no official word from Google about changes, but the traffic drops for these sites are undeniable.

Upon further research, we noticed these changes in ranking and traffic affected not only RipOffReport but also other sites like ComplaintsBoard, PissedConsumer, ConsumerAffairs, and more. These websites are known for refusing any removals requests. Some of them even won’t respect court-ordered removals on their site. When they do honor the court order, they take months to remove the content. And after doing so, the same report may appear again on a new URL, which the court order doesn’t apply to.

This change that is currently still in effect is relieving much stress and pain for many business owners and consumers worldwide. It is possible that the site’s reputations, due to all the complaints, and actions to ignore court orders, have caused Google to make changes in their algorithm, causing them to drop in Google search results.

What this means for people with a RipOffReport

To this date, these changes are still in effect, and a RipOffReport will rarely show on the first page of Google. However, don’t assume these sites are gone from the first page forever. RipOffReport relies on traffic for their ad revenue, so they are likely to make changes to boost their rankings. Take this time to take control of your search results by actively posting content to build a reputation buffer.

But Doesn’t RipOffReport Expose Some Real Scammers?

Yes it does, but is the cost of this benefit too high

It should be said that there is presumably tens of thousands of genuine scammers who are exposed through the website. However, the adage  “you can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs” does not hold water when the cook is Ed Magedson.
Ed Magedson has lost all claims to social heroism because he chooses a “we do not remove complaints” policy, even when unimpeachable evidence is available to vindicate the falsely accused victims of his website. Free speech is not free! It always costs someone. If it costs the bad guys then it is great but if it hurts the innocent then it is bad for people. Yes, bad things do happen to good people.
