Ripoff Report Removal Overview
There are several methods for removing unwanted posts about you or your business on Ripoff Report.
Here is one way that can be used in the event a link is posted about you anonymously. Assuming the poster was fake and you cannot identify who it is, it can be permanently removed from Google’s index using the following steps:
- A lawsuit* is filed against the poster on published the listing on Ripoff Report
- Legal notices* are published in the newspaper for several weeks, notifying the poster of lawsuit*
- When no one replies to the newspaper ads, this is taken to the judge in the case and a default judgement is requested
- After the judgement is awarded, a list of all pages in which the negative post appears are given to Google for removal from its index
- When Google removes the content from its search index, it no longer appears in search results

Ripoff Report De-Indexing Case Study
Here’s a case study interview we conducted with a business owner who used this method to successfully get an anonymous review of his business de-indexed.
Please note – the success rate of this method varies and is not always used.* This is simply a description of one possible method we may use.
What You Can Do About A Complaint On RipoffReport.com
If you’re the victim of a complaint about you or your business on Ripoff Report, you have several choices, which we’ll outline below.
1. Do not reply to it! I can’t stress this enough. I know your natural reaction is going to be to set the record straight, but when you comment on an article, you just make that article stronger. Longer content usually ranks better than shorter content and by adding your input, you increase the length of the page. Also, comments make the page appear more relevant to Google. So, bite your tongue and refer to the rest of this guide.
Also, commenting on a complaint can show that you know who posted it (even if they used an alias), and this can automatically avoid your chance of getting it removed legally (see #3).
2. Don’t click on it! Each time you Google your company or keyword and click on the ripoffreport link, you are signaling to Google that it is a relevant search result to your query. This can help nudge it up in search results. If you must look at it, use Google Chrome as your browser and open Google with incognito mode, so that Chrome doesn’t save a record of what you do.
3. Get it removed from Google’s index. Removal of negative content is always your best course of action because it nips the problem at the root. By removing the content, you won’t have to worry about it re-surfacing years later, you won’t ever have to explain it, and you won’t have to worry about Google autocomplete picking up on it and publishing unwanted suggestions next to your name.
If the post on ripoffreport.com meets the following two criteria, we may be able to get it removed from Google’s index:
- Fake or alias author
- False or defamatory content
If the posting about you meets these criteria, request a quote for guaranteed removal pricing using the form on this page.
We work with our legal* team to get a judgment on your behalf. We take that judgment to Google and Google removes the link from its index. This means it won’t appear in Google search results – instead when you Google your name, you’ll see the Chillingeffects.org statement.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The judgment does not require the owner of ripoffreport.com to remove the page from its site. Ripoffreport.com is protected by off-shore laws that do not require it to ever remove any content. When Google removes the page from its index, it will not appear in Google. However, it still may appear in other search engines like Bing, Yahoo, and Ask. Also, this method is not always successful, but if you decide to move forward with us, you only pay if we are successful and you are satisfied.
4. Push it down off page 1. Our suppression team are specialists at pushing down negative listings on ripoffreport.com. We’ll create positive content about you and promote it until the unwanted ripoffreport article is on page 2 of search results, where most people will never see it.
5. Create Your Own Reply. If you really can’t help yourself and just have to state your piece, go to WordPress.com and create a free 1 page response. Be sure to choose a URL like yourkeyword.wordpress.com and title it “Your Keyword Reply To RipoffReport”. (Your keyword is whatever keyword is causing the negative listing to appear – most likely your name or company name).
Then you can write your response (remember, the longer the better) which explains your side of the story. Do not hyperlink to the article on ripoffreport, this only helps it get stronger.
The advantages of creating your own reply are:
- Your reply might outrank the original complaint
- You’ll have a professional site you can refer your clients to where they can see your version of the story
We’re not big fans of this method because creating more content that includes your keyword + ripoff, can lead to ripoff appearing as a suggestion in Google Autocomplete – and then you’ve got another problem.
6. Ignore it. If you’re unable to afford removing it or suppressing it, this is your next best solution. I know – this is not why you’re reading this post – but consider these factors: First, the word about ripoffreport is slowly getting out. Consumers are beginning to learn the site is garbage and know a lot of what appears there is just wining, complaining and false statements from people hiding behind their computer. As word gets out, it’s only a matter of time before major news media expose the site for what it is – a fraud.
The other thing is that Google may one day take manual action, like it did on the many different mugshot websites. These sites collect public mugshot photos of arrestees and publish them to their website under the guise of offering a “public service.” Then they extort you to the tune of $400 or more if you want your image removed. With any kind of luck, ripoffreport will meet a similar fate.
RipOff Report Suppression
I think RipoffReport.com is a disgusting website and I know I’m not alone. They’re in the business of collecting as many consumer reviews as they can – whether they be false, fake, or defamatory – they don’t seem to care.
I’ve tried to publish a positive review on Ripoff Report and it was rejected. That tells you something about the kind of operation they’re running.

Ripoff Report Update 2020
Well, it’s been a while since I actually visited ripoffreport.com and I was shocked to see them begging for donations via a message at the top of their website and also this blatant message that appears as soon as you try to leave the site.
Boy, owner Ed Magedson must really be panicking now, begging for donations like he’s Wikipedia.
The truth is that over the last couple of years, a couple of things have happened:
1 – Europe and other countries put in the place Right To Be Forgotten (RTBF) legislation. So, if someone publishes an article about you on Ripoff Report, all you have to do is request that Google remove the page from their search index and Google must comply. This means Ripoff Report can’t make any money extorting you or signing you up to it’s bullshit Corporate Advocacy Program.
2 – The other thing that happened is that Ripoff Report got slapped with a penalty by Google which means the site no longer ranks well. I can tell because the number of calls we get about the site has dropped dramatically.
So now, they’re asking consumers for a handout in the name of free speech. Man, what a racket this guy is running.
