    One of the biggest fears that people and companies have is that their name will be slandered from negative results when using a search engine. Negative links have the potential to extremely impact a person’s day to day life, or worse, their professional goals. It can affect their chances at landing jobs, receiving loans, or getting new clients for their business.
    In a 2018 survey, 86% of consumers stated they will read reviews for local businesses prior to making their purchasing decision. This means that negative content can potentially deter nine out of ten customers before you even have the chance to secure their business. At Guaranteed Removals, we believe that everyone deserves a second chance and with our link removal service, that second chance is now an option for your online reputation.

    Link Removal: A Second Chance

    Everybody makes mistakes, it is unfortunately just a fact of life. However, no one wants their mistake to define them for the rest of their lives. With the ubiquity of the internet, a lapse in judgment now has the potential to last significantly longer and influence your future endeavors. Prior to the development of the internet and the prevalence of social media platforms, shortcomings and poor judgment did not have such dire permanent effects on our reputation. However, due to the popularity of the internet, and how readily available information is, negative links will remain relevant for extended periods. At Guaranteed Removals, we understand that mistakes happen, and no one should have a bad moment define who they are, which is why we are proud to offer our link removal service.

    Link Removal Cost

    At Guaranteed Removals, we help to ensure that past blunders do not impact your future opportunities. With our link removal service, we can help individuals remove harmful slanderous content (including photographs) from several sources including blogging websites, revenge sites, and indexed information being displayed from Google. The cost of link removal varies and is dependent on the difficulty and quantity of links that need to be removed.

    Our link removal services ranges from roughly $500 to the upmost cost of $100,000; although most solutions are somewhere between the $3,000 and $15,000 range. Our prices are one-time fees that are only paid if we can successfully remove your content from the damaging sites. The link removal process on average takes about two to four weeks but can take upwards of 90 days depending on the amount of links and their locations.

    Google Removal

    If link removal is not an option for whatever reason, Google remova (also known as de-indexing) is another option that our team can provide. De-indexing a link means that it will no longer appear as a result on some search engines; however, Google is the most prominent at de-indexing content. Instead, the only way people can find the link is if they were to go to the website and manually look for the link, which is rare for people to do. De-indexing is different from link removal in that the content will still be online, but no one can find it simply by searching for it whereas link removal completely removes the content from the internet.

    Link Removal is one of our specialties at Guaranteed Removals and we pride ourselves in our ability to have removed content or completely deleted over 25,000 links of all varieties of content for clients from countries across the world for thousands of clients.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    The cost of link removal can vary significantly based on several factors. Prices may range from $500 to several thousand dollars. This variation depends on the complexity of the case, the number of links that need to be removed, and the websites where these links are published. Each scenario presents its unique challenges, and as such, the cost is often tailored to the specific requirements of each case.

    The pricing for review removal services can be quite distinct, with costs typically ranging between $500 and several thousand dollars. This cost fluctuates based on the intricacy involved in dealing with each review, the total quantity of reviews to be managed, and the diversity of platforms where these reviews are posted. The unique characteristics and challenges of each individual case significantly influence the final pricing.

    In addition to one-time review removal, there is also the availability of a comprehensive monthly review management service. This service entails regular monitoring and proactive management of reviews across various platforms. It's designed to ensure that new reviews are addressed swiftly and efficiently. The cost for this monthly service is determined by factors such as the breadth of platforms to be covered and the volume of review activity. Opting for this service can be particularly beneficial for businesses or individuals who require ongoing vigilance and management of their online reputation, offering a systematic approach to maintaining a positive online image.

    Removing images and videos from the internet can be a complex process, with the cost and approach varying significantly depending on several key factors. These include copyright ownership, the nature of the content (such as adult content), and the extent of its online spread.

    1. Copyright Ownership:

      • Owner of Copyright: If you own the copyright to the image or video, the removal process is generally more straightforward. You have the legal right to request the removal of the content from websites and search engines. This process can often be initiated through copyright infringement claims or DMCA takedown notices. The cost for this might be relatively lower, primarily involving legal or administrative fees.
      • Non-Owner of Copyright: If you do not own the copyright, the removal process becomes more complicated and potentially more costly. In such cases, you might need to engage in negotiations with the copyright holder or utilize reputation management services to suppress or remove the content.
    2. Nature of the Content (Adult Content):

      • Adult Content: The removal of adult content, especially if posted without consent (often referred to as "revenge porn"), is treated with urgency and sensitivity. Many platforms have specific policies for the rapid removal of non-consensual adult content, and in some jurisdictions, there are legal avenues for expedited removal. The cost might vary depending on the legal and technical measures required.
      • Other Content: For non-adult content, the standard procedures for copyright claims or reputation management apply, and the costs will depend on the complexity of the case and the response of the hosting platforms.
    3. Extent of Online Spread:

      • Limited Spread: If the image or video is not widely distributed, the removal process is typically more manageable and less expensive. This often involves directly contacting the websites hosting the content and requesting removal.
      • Widespread Distribution: If the content has spread extensively across the internet, the process becomes more challenging and expensive. It may involve a comprehensive approach, including legal action, widespread DMCA takedown notices, and possibly online reputation management tactics to suppress the visibility of the content.

    The cost and approach to removing images and videos from the internet depend significantly on these variables. Copyright ownership offers a more straightforward path to removal, while dealing with non-consensual adult content or widely spread material requires a more complex and potentially costly strategy.

    Addressing the removal of news articles often entails a more complex and costly process compared to review removal, with prices generally starting around $2,000 and potentially reaching several thousand dollars. The pricing reflects the complexity and sensitivity involved in dealing with news articles, which often require a nuanced approach given their nature and the sources involved.

    The cost for news article removal varies greatly based on the specifics of each case. Factors influencing the price include the number of articles to be addressed, the prominence and credibility of the publishing platforms, and the particular details of the content in question. Each scenario is unique, necessitating a customized approach and strategy, which is reflected in the pricing. Unlike reviews, news articles typically require a one-time, targeted intervention rather than ongoing management.

    The cost to remove something from Google search results can vary widely, primarily depending on the nature of the content and the complexity of the removal process. Unlike dealing with specific websites or platforms, Google removal involves a different set of challenges and considerations, as Google indexes content from across the web.

    Factors influencing the cost include:

    1. Nature of the Content: If the content is defamatory, violates Google's policies, or contains sensitive personal information, it might be easier (and sometimes free) to request its removal directly through Google's own channels. However, this is only applicable in specific cases where the content clearly violates Google's guidelines.

    2. Number and Source of the Links: The more links there are, and the more authoritative the websites they come from, the more challenging and expensive the removal process can be.

    3. Legal Involvement: In some cases, legal intervention might be necessary, especially if the content is defamatory or illegal. Legal fees can significantly increase the cost.

    4. SEO and Online Reputation Management (ORM) Services: If direct removal from Google is not possible, the alternative often involves using SEO and ORM techniques to suppress the unwanted content in search results. This approach can be costly, depending on the aggressiveness and duration of the campaign.

     

    Typically, costs can start from a few hundred dollars for simpler cases but can escalate to several thousand dollars for more complex situations involving legal intervention or extensive ORM campaigns. It's important to note that directly removing content from Google's index is often challenging and not always possible, and the company adheres to strict guidelines about what types of content can be removed or deindexed.

    If the content that was previously removed reappears online, our commitment is to address the issue again at no additional charge, in line with our service guarantee. This approach aligns with our business ethos and name, underscoring our dedication to providing effective and enduring solutions for our clients. In the unlikely event that we are unable to successfully remove the content upon its reappearance, we offer the assurance of issuing a full refund. Our priority is not only to initially resolve your concerns but to ensure that the solution is lasting, reflecting our comprehensive commitment to client satisfaction and the integrity of our services.

    Guaranteed Removals does offer payment plans to provide flexibility for our clients. However, it's important to note that while these plans are designed to accommodate various budgetary needs, some promotional discounts might not be applicable when opting for a payment plan.

    We strive to tailor our services to each client's situation, and while we do have payment plans available, we also encourage clients to consider the full payment option if feasible for them. This approach not only simplifies the process but also allows clients to take full advantage of any available discounts or promotional offers.

    Our goal is to offer a range of options to ensure our services are accessible while maintaining the highest standards of efficiency and effectiveness. Whether you choose a payment plan or a full payment option, our commitment to providing a lasting solution remains unwavering.
