Opt Out and Delete profile

Opting Out of the Injury Lawyer Index Legal Directory


To "opt out" of the Injury Lawyer Index Legal Directory, please fill out our contact form. Make sure to reference which profile you would like removed.  Then, we will verify that you are the person listed by comparing the listing to your email domain and the company website.


Note: Non-official emails (i.e., free email addresses like [lawyer'sname]24@gmail.com) are insufficient and will require further information before proceeding.


After we verify the identity of the requester, our team will remove your profile and reply to confirm the deletion from the Injury Lawyer Index Legal Directory.


Why do We Do This?


This precautionary action protects our database against spammers and marketing companies trying to accomplish negative SEO on clients' competitors.


Negative SEO - What is it


Negative SEO - What is That?


Negative SEO or "Black Hat" SEO is when a competitor uses online tactics to damage or tarnish your online reputation in order to steal traffic, search rankings, or clients. It could be as simple as changing your phone number or asking to delete your profile.


Your chances of securing new clients are directly related to the increased visibility of your Injury Lawyer Index profile. Even a free up-to-date profile that has not been claimed can send your firm 5-10 inquiries per month.


There are only so many clients. Therefore, each new client you secure for your company is one less for your competitors. One of the best ways to decrease the number of clients finding your firm online is to reduce potential online sources.


Thus, requesting your profile to be deleted across the internet is a common negative SEO tactic. This tactic will remove traffic sources to your company and leave more clients to find your competitors.


Interestingly, most of the opt-out requests we receive across LOCALSYNC's professional directories are from these free "fake" [lawyer'sname]24@gmail.com-type email addresses. Over 97% of those who require additional proof of identity don't respond when we ask.
