Between Penguin and Google's love of the bigger brand, my site is being further punished.
I am being outranked for my own company name by two review sites reviewing a popular restaurant (that happens to have the same name as my business). Mine is a 11 year old site vs a 2 year old one and review sites. My business is more reliant than ever on people searching for my site by name after getting decimated by Penguin 1.0. I have seen some slight recovery after the last Penguin but this is not good.
Is there anything that I can do to counter the rise of the review site? I can understand the site BEING reviewed and possibly outranking me for the company name as it's owned by a well known chef, but should review sites have so much SERP space?
