How To Remove/Disable A Bad Review On Your Facebook Fan Page October 2015

October 8, 2015

Getting a bad review on Facebook can be traumatic for any business. Especially if the review is fake or an attempt to destroy your reputation online. Don’t worry too much, there is some hope.

While you can not necessarily remove the bad review, you can disable the option for your map, check-ins and stars (reviews) to show up. This will stop the public from seeing any reviews on your Fan Page. Try it out! (if you come across an easier way to do this, please email us so we can update this blog: info@upsidebusiness.com)

Here is how to remove reviews from your Facebook Fan Page (as of 10/8/15).

  1. Go to your Facebook Fan Page
  2. Click Settings button (top right) and then click the “About” tab (toward middle of the page).OR, you may also be able to click “About” as a first step

3. Do NOT click on the map. Instead , Click on the “Page Info” button seen on the left

4. Then, hover to the right of your address until you see a pencil and the word “Edit”

5. Click the pencil. It will open up the dialogue box. Here’s the map.

4-show-map

 

6. Now, uncheck the box that says “Show map, check-ins and star ratings on the page”
7. Then click Save Changes

In the past, this is how people were doing it: Click on Edit page > Update page info > Under Page info edit Address > disable ‘Show this map on your page’

FYI: Blocking someone on your Facebook Fan Page does not help. Others will still be able to see the Review even if you do not after blocking them so try disabling the reviews from showing up altogether. The downside is that good reviews you have will also NOT be seen; however, there are plenty of other places to display your positive reviews such on your website, Google, yelp, review sites etc.

Good luck!

How Long Will It Take To Get A Top 10 Ranking In Search Engines From SEO?

How long will it take to get a top 10 ranking in search engines from SEO?

A common question. The precise amount of time it will take until your site will rank in the top 10 search engine results will depend on a variety of factors, including the competitiveness of your keywords, the strength of your competitors, and more, including how major search engine algorithms change over time and your current positioning, the age of your website etc.

If you are in a non-competitive niche or trying to rank for your brand name, and that name is unique, you may be able to rank with no or very little SEO work done. If you are in a competitive area, even for longtail search terms such as Long Island Divorce Attorney, you may need extensive SEO work done on an ongoing basis to get first page Google Rankings. It could take anywhere from a few months to 6 months or more. If your SEO company is building links to your website, it could take months for Google to find all of the links and use them toward ranking your website.

Most clients will see initial rankings improvements the very next time Google indexes your site. For more competitive keywords, SEO is a process and can take anywhere from weeks to months.  If immediate visibility on page one is needed, we recommend considering other strategies such as Search Engine Marketing i.e. Pay Per Click Marketing.

Please note the above is for Organic Rankings. If you have a local map listing on Google, for example, we have been able to get Clients onto page on of Google in map packs for competitive terms simply by making some changes to a Client’s Google Business listing. Sometimes errors in how a listing is set up can easily be fixed, and if all other SEO factors are strong, results can be seen right away. By no means is this the norm, however it is possible and we have seen it done many many times.

It’s important to remember that SEO really is a process. Vet your SEO company carefully before hiring them so that you can be confident that you have made the right choice.
