Simon Cowell Is Smart!

| Filed under: Simon CowellTech Talk

Well, we knew that already, but he's REALLY smart!

Simon Cowell is rumored to have hired an SEO firm that places positive stories about the former American Idol judge at the top of search engine results!

Supposedly critics of Cowell are having a hard time finding their work via a search engine and it's assumed that an SEO firm is behind the mystery.

For example Hans Ebert wrote a scathing blog about Cowell and it was "de-activated" by his blog host for violating the "Terms of Condition."

After 12 hours the blog was reinstated and after Ebert did some research, the trail led to "an SEO company out of Bangalore, who is hired by a company based out of London to 'monitor' news of a few 'name personalities.'"

Shady!

Cowell's spokeswoman says the story isn't true, but experts think SEO firm Reputation Management Consultants are behind it.

We may have to look into doing this, too!

Ha!

Update: A rep for Cowell tells us, "None of us, including Simon, have even heard of this company or that guy's blog. Simon knows if he gives criticism out he will get it back - and he encourages that when its right - always has done".

    If that Ebert situation is true, this is not only disgusting but a nefarious endangerment to all Free Speech (and a Free Press). It isn't only a cute horror story of competitive publicity seeking but also one of control and impediment of basic rights to communication and opinion. If the vanity of the rich causes some to think they'll "own" the Internet, they'll sadly be surprised with what they'll wind up buying in the end.

    i want to squeeze milk from his boobs.



  3. 3

    That's Hans Ebert, not Roger Ebert. The latter doesn't write about American Idol.



  4. 4

    too little too late dumbass. maybe you should've done that a long time ago, but it wouldn't help you now.



  5. 5

    Good idea, pig-vomit. Then there'll be no stories about you whatsoever.



  6. 6

    It's a good idea. You should look into it.



  7. 7

    Hate that guy.

    And holy crap Perez you SUCK ASS. Roger Ebert is a movie critic. Do your research. Or at least learn to read.

    Hey douchewaffle, get your fucking lackey to read the fucking source articles first. Roger Ebert is a movie critic, who is battling cancer, and I doubt has the time or inclination to bash Simon Cowell. Furthermore, I would think Roger Ebert has a little more pull when it comes to his blog host. Hans Ebert, the guy claiming Cowell's PR people got his post pulled, is a music exec, which is why he has issues with Simon. It took me less than 5 minutes to figure all of that out. I don't care if she's your fucking sister; fire her already!

    God Mario, learn to write. the company is either "out of India" or "based in India". Cretin

    Search engine optimization is an extremely common practice for companies so it makes sense that celebrities would do it too. Perez, if you want great SEO work done for you at a very reasonable cost, please contact me and I can put you in touch with someone who does awesome work!



  12. 12

    How utterly insecure of him.



  13. 13

    Come on Perez! atds09 is right. It's Hans Ebert, not Roger Ebert. That's a huge typo.



  14. 14

    hey genius, its not robert ebert.



  15. 15

    ROGER EBERT HAS MORE TALENT IN HIS DEAD USELESS JAW THAN SIMON HAS IN HIS WHOLE PATHETIC BODY. I HOPE THE MAN DIES IN A YACHT ACCIDENT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND TAKES ALL HIS SHITTY OVERBLOWN KAROAKE SHOWS WITH HIM



  16. 16

    You are a fuckin moron. Even though I loathe Ebert, you've got the wrong Ebert dolt



  17. 17

    sad part is some moron (mario) does it, but it dont work…… unless you search for perez hilton, then you get it in the top 20…… lmao moron…… hire me and be in the top 3 for everything…..oops, you cant afford me

    The irony of this post is epic. So the guy who made his name bashing everyone in Hollywood wants to hire an SEO firm so only positive stories about him bob to the top of search engine results? What if everyone who was anyone did that? There would be no links to your blog in search results, that's what if. Okay, so you've become a Hwood "personality" now, and you no longer have time to spend on the very thing that made you. If you are going to have people write for you, then at least make sure they are educated and professional. The current crop are dumb, classless, stupid, don't speak english (which is a requirement if you are writing a blog in english), uneducated, unprofessional, unimaginative and they make you look really, really bad. It's one thing to be hated for the trash you dish on people, it's something else to be thought of as just plain illiterate. You can do better than this. This is your brand, it has your name on it, and if it's OK with you to have your name on a steaming pile of dogshit, then you might as well pack it up because if you are depending on your personality to keep you relevant, then you are delusional.

    I've heard he's using Organic SEO Marketing in Los Angeles. Google 'em!



  20. 20

    Sorry if I missed the joke here, but just for fun, why not identify more than one of these censored "critics" of Cowell and maybe one or two of your "experts." Otherwise, you risk affecting the credibility of your blog and other trusted celebrity gossip blogs. And that's not what you'd want, right? Ever post corrections?



  21. 21

    Yes Mario your failing website needs all the help it can get. Nobody posts to your copy and paste stories anymore.



  22. 22

    Reputation Management Partners is the SEO Company's name wrong. Easy mistake as they all sound the same. They worked on this case. I know because I worked their doing web design. You would be amazed how many celebs hire companies like this. This company also did work for Charlie Sheen and Tom Cruise.



  23. 23

    Simon, I beg of you, PLEASE change your awful hairstyle. Thank you.

    It isn't the search engine thing thats quite as much a concern as the allegation that somehow something behind the scenes brought down a blog entry about Cowell. What would warrant the impeding of Free Speech about a blog entry about a celeb? The angle or implication that SEO might have a hand in a server or host company censoring (through deletion) of certain blog entries or even whole blogs (citing some mysterious Terms of Service violation) would be the bigger story if true. Monopolizing the top search results in Search engines might be annoying. But to somehow delete or have deleted blogs, articles or online mentions just because someone's PR firm might not like them is something far more dangerous to the whole meaning of freedom of speech. You either have freedom of speech or you don't. And are spin doctors, the rich and those with capitalistic interests going to dictate that now?

    It is NOT smart, it just indicates that THAT INDIVIDUAL got issues…
    He cannot tolerate critic or negative respond -his own medicine towards others..

    I never liked Cowell …It still surprises me that a lot of people (millions of viewers actually ) thought that what he was doing was ok ( telling so-called "truth" to youngsters…haha )…well ,all right, but that person cared only on his own persona on TV…and that shit about search engine only confirms that: narcissism is HIS DIAGNOSE



  26. 26

    cleeeeeeeeeeeevage

    "Very nice. You're my new co-host, Rich" said Ebert has he wiped off his mouth with a piece of Kleenex.

  30. 30

  32. 32

    Seriously. If this was actually true, then why would this article and several others just like it pop up first? Sounds like cwaps to me. Gets everybody to click and get all outraged over it. junk.



  33. 33
