No. Google does not remove negative news stories from its search results. Google’s search algorithms are designed to provide the most relevant and accurate search results possible. Negative news stories are part of the public record and as such they are likely to appear in search results. If you have an issue with the content of a news story, you should contact the publisher directly. This is because Google’s search algorithm is designed to provide users with the most relevant and informative search results, regardless of whether the content is positive or negative.
However, there are some situations where negative news stories may be removed from search results. For example, if the content is defamatory, violates copyright or trademark laws, contains personal information such as social security numbers or credit card information, or is otherwise illegal, Google may remove the content from search results.
In such cases, you can request that Google remove the content from search results by submitting a request through their legal removal request form. However, it is important to note that Google will only consider requests that are legally valid, and they will not remove content simply because it is negative or damaging to your reputation.
If you are concerned about negative news stories appearing in search results, there are other strategies you can use to mitigate the impact. This includes creating positive content that promotes your brand or business, engaging with your audience on social media, and working with a reputation management company to help manage your online presence.
