SEO Reputation Management at its best!

Boulder, CO Matthew G. Cooke has been selling hacking technology to shady / greedy venture capital financed online SEO and reputation management companies designed to take, anonomity on the internet and promote censorship and injustice world-wide.


  • Matthew Cooke of 10 and 2 Studios refines his 'Cool Technique' to remove and alter search results on Google, Bing and Yahoo to blind content on consumer advocacy websites, personal blogs and to suppress the truth for anyone able to pay his price. [continued below]....
.....
  • Matthew Cooke sells the hack on 10-11-2010 to Michael Roberts of Rexxfield. A plan is devised to falsely manufacture a class action lawsuit against Google's property based on the hacks ability to censor content at will and on what Rexxfield terms the 'Google Humility Algorithm'.

  • Matthew Cooke in November of 2010 sells the hack and his web property http://removeyourname.com to Reputation Defender, Inc. Reputation Defender, Inc., changed it's name to Reputation.com on January 27, 2011.

Matthew Cooke, offering to sell the hack to Michael Roberts of Rexxfield and Bruce Anderson of ReputationDefenseOnline.com ( it takes 90 seconds for this audio to begin to play, please be patient )

A few highlights with time markers to listen for :


  • 90% of Matthew Cooke's revenue is from removing anonymous consumer advocacy report on Ripoff report - time marker 1:25

  • Matthew Cooke has been removing contents and altering search results for over 4 years and it started with RemoveYourName.com. It takes only half-an-hour to destroy someone's free speech. - time markers 5:28-7:05

  • Rexxfield asks Matthew Cooke for an exclusive on the hack, Cooke explains the price for Reputation Defender is $60,000 but a non-exclusive price is cheaper. - time marker 13:08

  • Cooke says the $60,000 price to Reputation Defender is because they had $100 million in venture capital. - time marker 14:39

  • Cooke states: "If Rep Defender puts $60 grand in our hands we can take that." - time marker 14:39

Matthew Cooke sells RemoveYourName.com to Reputation.com in November 2010.


Matthew Cooke is contacted by Rexxfield about a doctor whom killed a patient while performing plastic surgery without proper training.


The doctor is written about on Ripoff Report and on people's personal blogs warning others, this causes a 50% drop in revenue. Cooke assures Rexxfield via SEO tactics they can reverse the 'spin' and remove all the negative content for $18,000. The content is removed and two years later the doctor is found guilty of killing her patient. During the time the content was removed, the clicnic was able to return to maximum profitability.


Matthew Cooke because of the large sums of money he was making through SEO by censoring the internet started a business idea he stole from me called Handlebargains, LLC.


Ligit Networks also benefitted from his 'Cool Technique' and manipulation / censoring of search results. While some people have reversed the hack, Cooke has 2nd and 3rd generations available that he bragged would destroy free speech and allow his client to take over the Internet.


Rexxfield became an authorized reseller to censor the Internet . Pay close attention to the first 3 minutes of this audio.


The injustice, caused by Matthew Cooke and these SEO + Online Reputation Management companies is wrong. That they bill themselves as 'Internet Bounty Hunters' with the ability to identify anonymous bloggers, or posters whom are trying to warn others of businesses or people whom have wronged them.


The Internet is our home, and, free speech, a global right. Share this story, we need to stop Matthew Cooke and all the criminal he has empowered.

Reputation Management Became ReputationChanger.com Black Mail For Doctor

AUTHOR: Cliff Stein Ripped Me Off $22,500 - ()

Cliff Stein, the Chief Executive Officer for Reputation Changer, promised to de-index the bad reviews that had been posted to the Internet, turning them into non-issues as online review sites, aimed at the medical profession, are all the rage—they were ruining my medical practices.

Anonymously, via an this site, my patients to sounded off on the quality of medical care they have received, cloaked in the privacy that the Internet allows.

Stein, promised this new injection code would delete patients’ online reviews. Stein said the $7,500 fee to delete content was far less that seeking legal action which is seldom effective against Ripoff Report, due to the prickly nature of free-speech lawsuits, and besides, it can be very expensive and very time-consuming.

He told me longer these negative reviews are online, the more damage they can do, and the more patients will turn to other physicians.

Stein provided a list of Fortune 500 brands and even elected officials, whom have used their deletion code and even introduced me to a hacker named Matthew Cooke who wrote the SQL code.

I paid the $7,500 and waited to have the negative reviews removed. As we continued to lose patients because reports remained, I was forced to pay another $7,500 retainer, for a total of $22,500. After not having my reputation restored, I asked for a refund and was told that was unreasonable. I then disputed the charges on my credit card and were utterly savaged by bad reviews it was brutal.

Stein, is not offering to de-index our complaints if we sign a non-disparagement and pay an additional $15,000 poor reviews.

AUTHOR: Fox News Scam - (United States of America)

Matthew Cooke was my Sugar Daddy.He once had me dance and entertain a business partner of his who have had an english accent, Matty told me his friend loves strippers.

The tape on this report sounds like the same person - http://www.ripoffreport.com/features/audio/Matthew-Cooke-Call-With-Michael-Roberts.mp3


Matthew promised me that once his wife was arrested for fraud, he would be free and marry me. Matthew and his UK business partner had been making allow of money by writing horrible things about people on the Internet and then forcing them to pay to have the content they had created deleted.

Then Matty hit it big by selling the computer code to Lijit Networks and Reputation.Com.  That is when Matty's friend offered to pay me $15,000 to tell his Google contacts Matthew was the one who created the code.

His friend was getting allot of money from Google for a reward.

Mugshot Websites Hiding Behind Freedom of Information Act-

Posted on July 10, 2012 by dcg1259

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a federal law that gives the public the right to make requests for federal agency records. All federal agencies, including EPA, are required to make requested records available unless the records are protected from disclosure by certain FOIA exemptions.
So the disclosures you see on mugshot websites example from mugshots.com states: The following Official Record of (We have removed the persons name to protect their privacy) is being redistributed by Mugshots.com under the Freedom of Information Act. This Official Record was collected from a Law Enforcement agency on 6/27/2012. Address herein
provided within Official Records, visualization provided by Google Maps.
So unless your mugshot and information was obtained from the FBIs Most Wanted List their redistribution disclosure is worthless.
Does not apply to records taken from state courts or local law enforcement agencies.  These agencies are governed by state law. Now get to work and check your county and your state laws closely. Help us find statues that will assist us in getting the laws changed. And get these sites shut down!

A Predatory site born every minute to prey on populations that suit their need for greed, not truth....

Posted in Opinions


 1- This site is a predatory site.; Just like the mugshot websites are. Both preying a population of people that do not need to be preyed upon.
2-There is a difference between censorship and journalism.
3-This report is trying to discredit the fact that people are being pushed to take matters into their own hands, as the Hosting websites and platforms are not protecting the public. With printing "the facts and truth" comes responsibility and accountability of the content of the reporting. The internet does NOT function as a printed news paper. What should be taken away from this report is that the posting of mugshot site serves no general public interest and the development of business to remove such  information is developing out of a need that is being induced in the public.
4- The Public Defenders are suppose the be our  court systems and laws that curtail the miss use and the abuse of  "the average" general public. Where are the law makers and why are they overlooking wired fraud, extortion, profiling of populations, why is transparency going one way, why are these sites afforded privacy,
6- If this blogger feels so strongly about the truth and it's "protecting the public" ability, then why haven't they provided their names. When one feels right and can stand by the "truth", they have no problems being honest and revealing themselves.  The fact that bloggers will hide behind "first amendment", but not be honest about who they are remains a curious fact

Matthew Cooke and Rexxfield used Fox 5 & Fox 11 News pawned to legitimize their hacking technology

AUTHOR: Sassy-One - (United States of America)

Im going to share the sh*t out of this report. LOVE this. As someone who paid money to have Ripoff Reports and personal blogs removed ( I am a single Mom and while the reports were true it was ruining my business) I did fix things with my customers. I KNOW Im doing something right by warning people that these companies steal your money as the blogs and reports eventually return. I admit, when they told me they were 'special investigators' for Fox (LA and Las Vegas) and then had me watch the videos on their websites, I was impressed. I paid over $10,000 to remove what I felt were customers whom were being unfair to me. Dont dare ask for your money back, they will threaten and intimidate you.. Thank you so much explaining this was all a scam, the players involved and being so eloquent about it.

Reputation Management companies bill themselves as 'Internet Bounty Hunters' with the ability to identify anonymous bloggers; posters and close the free flow of information, if you pay their fee$

AUTHOR: John Galt - (United States of America)

Wow - the companies in the above article are the enemies of the Internet. The desire is clear, to stop information from being free and flowing on the Internet.

There is a reason that the right to free speech is in the First Amendment, and not the Second, Third, Fourth, etc. It is the most important constituational right we have.

Tracking the identify of anonymous posters and deleting information to whomever has the deepest pockets is disgusting. Matthew Cooke and any companies he is associated with should be boycotted.

To all my blogger friends, I urge you to share the above report ASAP.
