Expose Fake Clinics has taken yet another course of action to hinder the work of Pregnancy Resource Centers across the nation, including our Portland PRCs by posting fake, negative online reviews again.
We are asking you to help us take immediate action and do just 3 things that will keep our reputation online intact so women are not deceived about who we are and what we do. Please refer to a previous blog post for more info.
Each time they do a fake review campaign, they try to make the reviews sound more genuine, but they are using talking points directly from the Expose Fake Clinics website. Unfortunately, we do not have any ability to remove fake reviews ourselves, but with enough people reporting them, it is more likely that Google will take action to remove them.
Your action will make a difference! Last October when the Fake Reviews campaign started, enough people reported these fake reviews and Google removed them since they represent conflicts of interest, are deceptive, biased, and misrepresent who are and what we do.
ExposeFakeClinics.com is an explicit campaign that aims to smear the reputation of Pregnancy Resource Centers across the nation by giving false information and negative reviews on our PRC business pages on Google. Since many women who are facing unplanned pregnancy go online looking for help, this can hurt us in search results and damage our reputation.
These steps will take you a little bit of time, but, undoubtedly, people who are a part of this campaign are putting a great deal of energy into their effort, too.
1. Report fake reviews to Google (go here for a detailed list of steps on “how to report” these false reviews).
2. If you have been a client, please leave a positive review, or encourage someone you know who has benefited from our services.
3. Spread the word! Post about it on Social Media and use the hashtag #ExposeFakeClinics.
Thank you so much for helping us to Expose Fake Reviews! As you know, this is not the first time that concerted efforts have been made to destroy the work we’re doing, and it certainly won’t be the last. May the Lord sustain us as we work to graciously demonstrate the compassionate work we do for our neighbors.
