We owed our web developer money and they took us to

This answer was rated:

Hello - we owed our web developer money and they took us to small claims to recover the money (which we have now settled). They have put up on their website on their client page that we didn't pay them and all the details. This is now damaging for our business as it appears on the first page when you google our website. Can we take legal action to get them to remove the post?
Thank you!

Hi Alex - can we discuss via message rather than phone? Can't have a private conversation at the moment.

Its bad news then I am afraid. If it is true then sadly you can not ask them to remove it. If it was untrue then you could do that.
However what you can do to be proactive is get a search engine company to create lots of keywords for you that means their search results are on page 2 of Google. no one ever looks at the second page. But this is something you can do and is not very expensive.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
