    At first look, it seems a jolly hard idea to put into practice.

    It's basically de-ranking the negative content and pulling up the more positive reviews, etc. In doing so, researchers will find only the good content regarding your business or organization, rather than the erroneous findings.

    You mean the 'unwanted findings'; and even more so if they are accurate rather than erroneous!

    Reverse SEO is the practice of taking actions for decreasing the rank of a page or website in Google and other search engine pages.

    Reverse SEO may be used for penalyzing competition websites. It is then called negative SEO and the practice presents legal risks.

    Reverse SEO may be a more legitimate practise when the purpose is to downrank a page or website which hurt brand or individual reputation. In this case, the technique used is often to try to place new webpages above the targeted page in SERPs and where possible to push down the "bad" page onto the second result page. It may also be tempting to use negative SEO for this situation.

    Reverse SEO is an online reputation management tool use by dedicated agencies to protect their clients.

    Reverse SEO can be used to suppress negative publicity that targets your company in Google, Yahoo, and Bing. By pushing bad press onto the second, third, and fourth pages of Google, those pages will be prevented from gaining traction or attention.

    Reverse SEO is also called Negative SEO and it is usually requested by other clients in order to take down their competitors by planting spam links into their website. You only need to remove the bad links by noticing the webmaster or using disavow tool.

    A follow-up seo question is: Is this black hat seo? Or gray hat seo?
