This is a real challenge to any defamation lawyer and a concern to many internet users.
Did you know that even after you delete your website, it can still be accessed by anyone through the WayBack Machine?
The WayBack Machine is the largest website archive in the world. It contains over 150 billion web captures and it includes content from more than 200 million websites.
If you feel a bit nostalgic today and want to see what your website looked like 10 years ago – WayBack Machine will take you right back there in no time.
Of course, there is a slight downside to all this. Just when you think that certain internet content has disappeared forevermore, there is a good chance it is still there, and that it can still be found and viewed by the public.
Websites never die. They go to website heaven, the largest website archive in the world.
Have a safe trip.
Defamation on a Complaint Website – best practice.
I know of only ONE very effective way to deal with defamation on a Complaint Website.
Most people believe that if you focus on removing the defamatory comments from a Complaint Site the problem will somehow get resolved.

This is my advice and you can ignore this advice at your own peril:
Instead of focusing on the removal of the web pages that contain the defamatory comments about you, you address any issues raised in them but on your own territory.
Here is an example of what I mean:
A few years back when I was faced with almost an identical problem in retaliation to posts listed on a Complaint Site I wrote a blog post, talking about
what happens to your life when people defame you on the internet, giving my own personal story as an example setting the facts right and even taking responsibility for my own mistakes. Read more on Internet Defamation Problems

We used to call them ‘The Complaints Barons’ because they were running websites dedicated to complaints/defamation so that those people defamed have no choice but to ‘hire’ the ‘Barons’ services to ‘mediate’ ‘moderate’ and ‘facilitate’ the successful removal of the defamatory content from their websites. You basically have to pay for protection. If you pay extra, they might also ‘protect’ you from future negative posts.
Internet defamation is used by owners of such websites to blackmail business owners as well as their defamation attorneys, says defamation lawyer Yair Cohen.. …READ MORE on Internet Law Expert blog
