Comment on Web Consultancy Review by SEO Gold Services.
For anyone looking for how to submit a defamation counter notification to Google, I couldn’t find a specific form, so I used: https://support.google.com/legal/contact/lr_counternotice?product=websearch to submit a counter defamation claim against this defamation claim: https://www.lumendatabase.org/notices/13378139
The form is limited to 1000 characters.
Update May 2017
I understand why the DMCA counter notification failed, I made the error of stating the now dissolved business DLH Web Consultancy Ltd (https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/08239559) located at Boho One – F05, Bridge Street West, Middlesbrough, England TS2 1AE and the business Web Consultancy Group Ltd (https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/07924238) located at 21 Gosford St, Middlesbrough, TS2 1BB are the same business/company.
Even though both companies were/are run by Stephen Hall and employed/employ Elizabeth Mulligan, technically/legally they are not the same business/company.
DLH Web Consultancy Ltd no longer exists, so technically/legally the new business Web Consultancy Group Ltd is not responsible for their unethical business practices of the previous business even though they are the same people.
Makes complete sense why Google blocked my one WordPress Comment for defamation, I’d accidentally defamed Web Consultancy Group Ltd.
Lesson learned, I won’t make that mistake again.
The original defamation claim (see below) was made on November 15th, 2016. Took me 4 and a half months to notice the Web Consultancy SERPs drop, that’s how little I cared about Web Consultancy SERPs in 2016/2017.

The author has, however, updated the articles to feature “AKA Web Consultancy Group”. As it is a different company and has nothing to do with the matters he refers to we believe this to be prejudicial against our business and request that they be removed from the website. We have contacted Fasthosts, where the server is and they provided us with an email for the host master, 3 email have since been sent with no reply. Further, the articles feature personal attacks against a lady, Elizabeth Mulligan, and seek to embarrass her. The publication of certain information by David Law has caused Ms Mulligan a great deal of anxiety and stress. Fact is, I work at Web Consultancy Group Limited, this is a totally separate company and has never been known as DLH Web Consultancy. This s …

After realising my mistake I fixed all instances where I’d called the two separate legal entities the same business and haven’t had any issues since.
