DENVER, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The world leader in mugshot removal,InternetReputation.com is announcing same day record removal from all arrets.org websites.
Arrests.org is one of the largest mugshot providers operating on the Internet, with an estimated 37,592 page views each and every day. Showing up on a site like this can be devastating to a person's reputation, but InternetReputation.com has a suite of solutions that can help. Those who are considering fighting back against the company via a variety of protest sites cropping up all over the internet would be wise to simply work with InternetReputation.com instead.
Arrests.org currently operates within 21 states, and it's likely the site will expand in the months and years to come.
"We follow this site pretty closely, and each month, we see that the administrators add new states and new counties to their mugshot books," says an InternetReputation.com representative. "Whenever a state has open-records laws and makes mugshots available online as a result, Arrests.org is soon to follow. Programmers just scrape the photos from the public sites onto their own."
Many people who have been targeted by sites like this claim that the work is illegal, and they may go to great lengths to pull Arrests.org off of the web altogether.
"We've worked with clients who have tried to sue, and they've quickly found that no lawyer will take the case. The work isn't illegal in most states," says an InternetReputation.com representative. "I've also seen petitions popping up on places like Change.org, in which people hope to change the laws and make the sites illegal in their states. These efforts also don't seem to come to much of a resolution. One petition I saw, for example, only had 14 supporters. That's certainly not enough to make a lawmaker rewrite the law."
Even Facebook has been used in the fight against Arrests.org. A new page, "Shut Down Arrests.org" currently has 22 supporters. Unfortunately, it's likely that far more than 22 people use Arrets.org links to populate their own Facebook feeds each day.
"It's relatively easy to post links from Arrests.org onto your own Facebook page, and some people just really love to do this. They think the photos are funny, and they like to humiliate other people on their own Facebook pages," says an InternetReputation.com representative. "I'd bet that far more people like to share photos when compared to people who want to shut the sites down."
The new set of solutions offered by InternetReputation.com allows for immediate removal of mugshots from Arrests.org. All of the information about the arrest is also removed. Programmers then break all back-links to Google, to ensure that the photo can't be found on a random search. This step is important, as Google doesn't index its site immediately.
"If we didn't break backlinks, small copies of the mugshot might still appear in Google searches, even when the photo was deleted. By breaking links, we ensure that this doesn't happen," says an InternetReputation.com representative.
Prices are reasonable, albeit customized, depending on how many copies of the mugshot appear online. Those who have more than one copy online might need to may a higher fee than those why just have one photo to remove. For more information on pricing, visit www.internetreputation.com.
