My NBO post has been the source of some attention lately, not the least by one woman who is unhappy to be mentioned there. We’ve spoken on the phone and as far as I can gather all the information is accurate – the only problem that exists is that her ex-employer still uses her details on some documents. I don’t think any of it is actually wrong.
She’s asked for some of the comments about her to be withdrawn and I’ve done that but now her lawyer is getting vocal because Google has not yet de-indexed the page. Given the 404s I find daily online I have no expectation that Google will de-index anytime soon so I’m expecting legal action over this one.
I have, however, used Google’s new promote-delete feature to remove the listing from their search results. Their documentation say that comments will be shared with other users, so presumably the deletion will be fed back into their algorithm. By doing so it is no longer simple when I want to check the SERPs as I have to log out of Google and then back in again. I will need to do this, though, to ascertain whether the legal demands have been met.
This will be interesting!
Thank you for your message received yesterday.
With regard to the itamer.com site we are instructed by our client that she did not give her consent. Please treat this email as confirmation that if any consent was given (which our client says it was not) then that consent is now withdraw. As such our clients image on that page needs to be removed as does any reference to her.
With regard to the Google entries we are presently having this checked by IT consultant. However we enclose a photocopy of page 1 of our Google search today which again shows a link between “NZ Scams to Avoid” and “NZLook”. This is now intolerable and unless this is dealt with by 5.00pm today proceedings will be issued.
