There is two different approaches to removing a mugshot from the internet.
1) The cheapest and easiest method is to perform a URL removal, this removes the URL and listing from the website and all the other major search engines. Once the URL is removed the webmaster will need to put the page through the Google URL removal tool, this will get the page removed from the actual search engines. In the majority of cases we work on, we use this method for our clients.
2) In some cases there will be no way to remove the actual URL listing from the website itself. In circumstances like this we will use what is called a reputation management campaign. In using a reputation management campaign to remove a mugshot what we are doing is eliminating the actual mugshot page from appearing in prominent pages of the search engines. To accomplish this we create and disseminate thousands of digital assets to bury all the offending listings. The benefit of the reputation management campaign is it helps prevent possible future mugshots from appearing in the search engines.
Both removal methods are effective and in many cases we will use a combination of both to remove all records. Feel free to contact us for a free consultation and we can help you determine what method is right for you.
