Nowadays, over 90% of the world’s population has access to the internet. While it does assist with everyday life, it also presents many issues for businesses and individuals; often leaving them in vulnerable positions.
Generally, most people are unaware of how to handle negative online content, often not knowing that there are in fact solutions for this. And Internet Removals are the experts in this field.
As of this week, Internet Removals (a trusted content removal agency) has successfully removed 1,721,412 URLs of online content and this number is increasing day by day, with over 700,000 URLs removed within the last 2 years.
Importance of Online Reputation Management
Protecting your online reputation is vital, as almost everyone has access and the ability to view information regardless of its authenticity and truthfulness. Considering technology and countless social media platforms are now commonly accessible and used by more than 60% of the world’s total population today, online information has the capability of reaching thousands of people within nanoseconds.
Businesses and individuals can be victims of public smearing across a plethora of online platforms and the risks are not only reputational but financial as well. Right or wrong, public perception shapes images, brands and directly affects reputations.

Usual Concerns on Content Removal Services
People often contact us seeking assistance but are unsure, they’re skeptical and we can certainly appreciate their concerns as our service may seem unorthodox to some. However, consider the digital era we now live in, it’s no longer conventional. If you are serious about your online reputation and presence and feel there is unwarranted online content about you or your business, then inaction is not an option.
Common objections we encounter:
• Unable to guarantee results
Is There a Magic Button to Delete Negative or Unwanted Content Online? Guaranteed results?
The number one question we get asked is “is it guaranteed?” Whilst we can never guarantee outcomes, our results certainly speak for themselves!
We do not control platforms, but we have a history of working with the right channels and teams to influence outcomes, and we do this by leaning on local legal principles.
Our costs are reflective of the work, our intellectual property, and the ongoing efforts we put in for clients, this includes multiple attempts. Multiple applications are required as it is common for platforms to reject the first few attempts. And whilst we do multiple attempts the cost to clients is a one-off fee for the work, they have engaged us to do.
Whilst we aim to achieve successful results in the fastest time possible, the timeframe is dependent on a number of factors including response times and responses from the platforms we are contacting. This can mean requiring us to provide platforms with more information, and or multiple applications. It can take time to achieve the desired result, but we firmly believe in managing client expectations accurately.
