One of the biggest expenses with having to repair your image and reputation online is the constant cost of maintaining results. As an expert witness in numerous court cases, Ruddie has had to outline the costs of registering domains, monthly hosting plans, content writers to upload and post content, costs of hiring a public relations team to land truthful biographical content like this, a graphic designer to create unique designs and logos for each website, a copy editor to edit the material posted on each site, and an outreach team to assist the PR team in creating new content on 3rd party websites.

As you can imagine the costs tend to add up rapidly when you go all-in on a promotional campaign. If you take your foot off the gas and Google’s algorithm updates then you most likely will find yourself facing new results from your attackers or old ones creeping back up.
