I heard on the radio just a few minutes ago that there's a website that claims to "combat negative press, rip off reports, social media attacks,forum posts and other negative search results pertaining to your name or business."

How would Newgrounders feel about this, and others using this program?

Wouldn't that be a form of censorship? I'm pretty sure there would be a law against that.

It would greatly make this forum suck, that's for sure.

Soooo... knock out negative, and likely accurate, reviews just so you can look better?

Yeah, this sounds like something a corrupt dictator would do.

I think you're grossly underestimating the numbers here. If they really have "over 1000 satisfied customers" that's saying they've been in business a while. And if they can just change results on search engines, then they got quite a bit of power behind them.

By a look back, they've been around for at least 2010. I think it's just recently they became accredited as a business.

I first heard about it this afternoon and had to write it down so I didn't forget like I usually do. I would think that if they can get an advertisement as long a one as they did, they'd have to have some money to back it up, which would imply some kind of business success.

Ok. First things first. Radio advertisements are cheap. "LIke, you and me could afford them" cheap (unless you're running your entire campaign over the radio and want 30+ rotations everyday, but nobody wants that anymore). In fact, the only type of advertisement that could be considered a big enough investment to denote "we've made it" would be a superbowl ad.

Now. Onto the company itself.

The services being offered by RepuatationChanger are basically a few select services usually provided by a PR agency. But RC aren't marketing themselves as a PR agency because a) they're not a full-service agency and b) they're targeting small business owners who don't know what PR is.

"But how ethical is this" the truth is, not ethical at all. But this isn't anything. This has been going on since PR agencies were founded back in the 1920s.

(I used to work as a PR account executive at Ogilvy & Mather for Coca-Cola and Samsung).


nobody goes there anymore. its too popular.

Figured that much. If I hear it ten more times, I'll make a note in the future.

The pay was great. The pay would have gotten significantly better as I aged (internal policy meant I couldn't be promoted to Senior Account Executive, or Account Manager until I was over 21).

The hours were very, very long though. E.g during Coca-Cola's 125th Anniversary campaign, we would start work at 6:30 AM and usually finish around 1-2 AM. This went on for 2 weeks.

Could they change the reputation of the worse video game of all time?
PC World voted ET how do you think Steven Speilberg feels about that?

I think the thing with these review websites like reputationchanger.com, reputation, profiledefenders.com, and any of the other big ones you hear about they are just like the big 3 automotive makers. they provide jobs piss a lot of people off and satisfy others for providing a need or solution to a problem.
