Here is an interesting situation. One of my advertisers requests that I de-index certain topic from Search Console, because the title does not put them in the best light. The title itself is fairly benign and the thread is well detailed and explained by the user - nothing aggressive or insulting about it, although it is critical of the provided services. The advertiser agrees that the topic should stay in their sponsored forum and they have no issue with that, however they kindly request that I de-index the thread from google. I decided that for me, I won't do it. It is a slippery slope that I do not wish to entertain and from the beginning we have agreed that well presented criticism won't be moderated in anyway. I think that removing the thread from google is definitely moderation even though it is actually moderating google search results. I will offer them the option to delist their entire subforum from google or not do anything, but I don't want to cherry pick only the topics that are favorable to them. Still, I am rather interested in your opinion. By denying this request it is quite possible that I will lose this advertiser and even though it won't be critical to the survival of my community, it will definitely have an effect. Do you think denying the request is the correct decision?
