What Is Reddit.com?
Reddit.com is one of the most popular social media platforms on the internet today thanks to its ability to connect people across populations, but this doesn’t mean that every post is a winner.
In fact, a negative review of your business could hurt your bottom line substantially.
As a social media platform, Reddit advertises itself as the “front page of the internet.”
Any member may create a community on any topic they wish.
These communities are self-moderated, and there are no rules against sharing links or images from across the web.
Users may also upvote anything they wish, with the most popular discussions getting prime real estate on the site’s homepage.
All of that typically works fine, but one dissatisfied customer can reach a lot of your target audience with a fraudulent review.
This can seriously injure your online reputation.
Impact Of Reddit Threads on Online Reputation
The real impact of Reddit is not so much Reddit itself, but rather, it’s when people go to Google and search for your brand and then they find a negative Reddit link in the first page of Google search results.
For example, the thread above sits on page one of Google for a client of ours.
Not only is the negative thread on page one of search results, but the additional 5 sub-threads that appear below it make it really stand out.
So, if someone Googles you or your products and they see a Reddit link like this, they are likely to click on it before buying from you.
You can’t flag it and adding your own positive comments only serve to make the link stronger and more relevant.
Your best approach is usually to get it taken down professionally, and that is what we can do for you.
Reddit Link Removal FAQ
What is the likelihood that a Reddit thread can be removed?
We’d need to see the specific link, but chance of removal ranges between 50-99%. Most Reddit links can be deleted.
Can you delete or deindex a Reddit thread?
Most threads are deindexed, not deleted.
And it’s important to know that we usually just de-index the main post, which causes the entire thread to lose it’s SEO value, thus dropping it in search results.
De-indexed is actually better as no one on the thread will know that the thread is no longer showing in Google, Bing, or Yahoo search results.
How long will it take to delete the Reddit thread?
1-2 months at the most.
When you delete the main post, do all comments go away, too?
No. We can, however, laser target any comments that hold SEO value. For example, if the main post and 3 of the 10 comments include your name or business name, we will focus on removing just those.
Once those are gone, Google doesn’t know what the thread is about because all mentions of your name or business have been removed.
This is what we mean when we say, “It will lose it’s SEO value.”
When these posts/comments are removed, it will drop in Google and no longer cause you a problem.
Does deleting a Reddit thread remove it from Google?
Yes; however it might take about a week for the cached version of the Reddit link to fall out of Google search results.
Are Reddit removal services guaranteed?
Yes, you only pay if we can successfully and permanently remove the thread.
Is there any risk to deleting a Reddit thread?
There is no risk, other than that other users may create new threads about your business. This is out of our control.
Are you able to find out who is behind a Reddit account? Can you tell their email?
No. Unfortunately not. The best we can do is remove it.
Reddit Thread Content
Reddit.com allows users to post anything they wish, including unsubstantiated negative reviews that can hurt a business.
These reviews are often categorized by terrible grammar and spelling, but readers tend to take them seriously anyway.
They also depict only one side of what happened.
You may be tempted to respond to your accuser directly on Reddit.com, as the site will allow you to.
However, it looks incredibly unprofessional for a business to get in a war on the site. Instead, you should hire an online reputation management firm to control the damage.
Posts May Be Removed From Reddit.com
Reddit.com rarely removes posts directly, although they reserve the right to do so in extreme circumstances.
The self-appointed moderators of each community are empowered to remove content violating the rules, and we will represent your interests in trying to get the offending material removed.
However, each community has its own rules, and some moderators will never remove anything.
In these cases, it is necessary to suppress the content rather than eliminate it outright.
Reddit can be confusing, so I recommend watching the video below and then contacting us for a free consultation, so we can analyze the Reddit thread with you and make a recommendation on the best course of action that will be most affordable.
Please include a link to the negative Reddit thread when you contact us.
How Do You Suppress A Reddit.com Post?
The vast majority of search engine users never leave the first page of results for their query.
Many of them never even leave the first half of the first page.
This means that negative content on Reddit may effectively be eliminated by burying it beneath truthful, positive content about your brand.
We have a broad range of techniques including our alter ego strategy which helps bury negative search results.
Here are some of the strategies we use to suppress negative content:
- Press Releases
- Social Media (see below)
- Exact Match Domain
You can make personal or business profiles on social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). This is a great way to bury Reddit.com content.
Your optimized profiles will contain your company’s exact name and contact information, making search engines trust it more than a random post on Reddit.com.
If your online reputation is suffering due to content on Reddit.com, contact us today to learn how to mitigate the damage.
You will likely need a consultation by phone or email and we’re happy to provide that.
We look forward to helping you.
