Negative SEO effecting business

Hello, I'm writing this message in hopes of helping Bruce Nishioka.

Current Business Address: 509 Hemlock St Brookings OR 97415

Current Telephone Number: (541) 469-0460

Full Business Name: Law Office of Bruce Nishioka PC


Bruce had this website attached to his listing (for a long time now):

and it has built so much presence that if you type in his name, this is the first thing that comes up.


He has a new website, which we have placed on his listing. We absolutely need this to fall off the top, it is hurting his business. I'd really appreciate any suggestions on how to go about doing so. We where hoping that his new website would rank higher, but it's been a battle.

hi @Randall E


It sounds like you're asking how to make Bruce's new website ( rank higher in organic searches than his old website (


If so, then that's not a question we answer in this forum which is dedicated to helping with Google Local business page issues.


I'd recommend asking your question in either the Webmaster forum:!forum/webmasters or the Google Search forum!forum/websearch

You're on a Google forum seeking advice on how the lawyer you represent can negative effect the Google search results of a government of California website. Now I've heard everything. A SEO Egspurt no doubt.
