    Hello everyone,

    Thanks everyone for your time.

    Folks! Do you believe that the competitors in your business niche apply cheap tactics to harm your business authority in the industry? Did you find that they wrote fake negative reviews with fake usernames (that never registered with you) about your website/ business / products / services to hurt your reputation on various review websites and forums?

    Please share your experiences if you have ever dealt with such competitors and situations.

    and if you haven't also share what would be your strategy to tackle the situation and restore your reputation?

    Looking forward to your opinions.

    Bliss

    I think there are so many blessed people here that none of their competitors writes negative and fake reviews on different review websites about their services and try to harm their integrity.

    Exactly that's what I strongly believe that no one can hinder the truth.
    But as you know people nowadays used to look for the products / services reviews before they pay for it. Such negative but fake reviews (written by the competitors on reviews websites) take away lots of potential consumers and sales. That is in fact the main purpose of the competitors.

    Actually that is also the basis of the "Google Bomb" method. According to Google, they found a way to stop these kind of cheap tricks to harm rankings and reputation.
