Can you think of anything else we can do so when a consumer types in Joe Kaiser, our press release comes up?
I’ve been told time and time again that I need to make sure I don’t let this blog get out of hand by making things personal.
And while that’s solid advice, I’ve got to tell you, it isn’t easy, particularly when I discover what you’re up to . . .
I find it remarkable.
Clicking the image above takes you to the exploded view and is much more readable, but here’s the text itself . . .
Cheryl called last week and reminded me that we should use both Joe and Joseph in our press re: Kaiser so that when people google his name, our complaint/press will come up. I’ve googled his name both ways and it’s odd, but nothing about our case comes up.
Kristen, do you know if we have a link to our complaint on our website, would Kaiser’s name come up in a google search?— Renee Shadel
Why else would they be so determined my name attaches to your office’s bogus press release?
Kristen Alexander responds to Renee’s email with a possible explanation . . .
Here’s that text . . .
Google probably hasn’t crawled that page or our site yet. I will add both names to the meta tags.— Kristin Alexander
Public Information Officer
So, Kristin goes about the process of Search Engine Optimization to make sure your press release pops up any time someone Googles my name.
Apparently, that wasn’t good enough because minutes later, Renee responds . . .
And that text looks like this . . .
When we searched today with Joe Kaiser and Joseph Kaiser, the press release did not come up. Kim put in “Joseph Kaiser” investor and it came up. Were both of his names added? Can you think of anything else we can do so when a consumer types in Joe Kaiser, our press release comes up?— Renee Shadel
“Can you think of anything else we can do so when a consumer types in Joe Kaiser, our press release comes up?”
I’m just glad it’s not anything personal, Rob.
You posted a press release you know is so error-filled that when I pointed out its many defects you rushed to modify it and finally, take it down like it never happened.
It happened, and that’s bad enough.
But when you put it back up once you’d realized taking it down confirmed your culpability, you showed the world that the facts don’t matter and your office will do or say whatever it wants to make its case.
And that is disgusting.
Wait . . . it gets better, because now it’s not just libelous. Heck no. Now it’s been optimized for vilification purposes as well.
Now consumers can more easily discover the Office of the Washington State Attorney General’s scandalous statements about me stealing homes from people in foreclosure. Statements you know, with absolute certainty, are completely untrue.
I’m no attorney, Rob, but that’s the textbook definition of libel.
You’d better believe it is.
In the arena,
