I've had two clients now call me, upset with Google results when they have looked up their own websites. In one case, my client ended up having me remove his website due to what he feels is slandering his good name and displaying his private personal information (see http://www.webproworld.com/webmaster-forum/threads/113202-Skeptive-com-has-client-seeing-red) resulting in my losing him as a client; in the other, my client wants to know what they can do about all these spurious listings in Google. I can't come up with a satisfactory answer to that question nor to what this is all about.
I don't know what to expect by posting it here, but it is at least a way for me to vent my frustration and see if others are experiencing these kinds of issues and maybe could advise me if there is something that can be done about them -- maybe something that my server is serving is inviting all these other websites to wheeze on my clients' websites?
For purposes of example, I am copying and pasting below the first two pages of results I got when, like my client, I typed in their domain name without the .com into Google. I have changed their domain name where it appears in the results to "myclientsdomain" and removed the hyperlinks as well as any other descriptive info that might show up.
The first and third results are my client's actual websites. The second result is a competitor who has named one of their pages with my client's domain name (without the .com). The 5th result is a forum in which someone has posted a link to my client's website.
None of the others have any relation to my client's website, yet seem to be "authoritative" sites that give information about the domain, its value, its "legitimacy" and so forth (except for #6, which is some totally unrelated thing when my client is in California and has nothing to do with boating).
