Why to remove news stories
Before the internet came along, bad news had a life cycle. Negative or unwanted business stories in the newspaper were here one day and then gone the next.
The World Wide Web, however, is a permanent record. Almost every newspaper now has an online equivalent that never goes away.
So while a bad story about your company published in the LA times might only last a few days or weeks, the same story lives on the internet forever.
And since most online newspapers rank well in google, the negative article has a good chance of appearing on the first page of google when you check your company’s online reputation.
Even small, local community newspapers have an online presence and these stories can show up when you google yourself or your brand.
Measuring the impact of negative press on your business
Some customers will ask you about a negative news article and this is easy to measure.
But what about people who research you online and never call due to uncertainty and doubt triggered by the negative article?
