To exclude a site from Google search, you just place a - before the following string (w/out quotes): "site:url.com"

So to exclude Realself results, it's "-site:realself.com"

You would place your keyword before the string. For e.g. "rhinoplasty -site:realself.com"

Conversely, you can remove the - to limit your search to one site: "rhinoplasty site:missjfacialplasticsurgery.com"

You can also exclude all search results that include the word "Realself" by just typing "-realself" after your keywords.

That is to say, when I'm Googling for med info, I'm NOT looking for RS doctor responses.

God only knows how many people have been banned, and how many good/bad reviews have been removed.

Nowadays, the latest Q&A type platforms promise to "reward" contributors with tokens based on the quality of their writing and their post's popularity among other community members. The site retains a percentage of the tokens, and the contributors are rewarded. I think this model, whilst not perfect, would be a far better alternative to RS. Either way, I hope someone comes up with a new and better idea to push Realself off its pedestal.

Thanx so much. That was helpful.

They explain all their marketing techniques for doctors on the part for 'Providers' where they tell them they can 'manage their reputation' and also have such things a RS 'university' and other stuff where doctors can learn tricks of the trade from doctors who KNOW HOW TO WORK IT in terms of marketing. Probably would not hurt to take a look at the docs who are most expert in marketing and promotion and perhaps rule them out as possibilities?

The Realself University features those doctors in video "tutorials": https://www.realself.com/university

Have also read that non-core doctors are designated in a subtly different way. So anyone with "Physician" on their profile can be ruled out as well:

"Real Self shows doctors like Valls and Hasan listed as “Miami Physician” instead of “Miami Plastic Surgeon,” as the site cannot verify their plastic surgery credentials. This slight change of language, however, is misleading to consumers who may not be aware of the disparity in wording."

They USED TO say that non-core doctors could NOT be part of their venue. But now I see them advertised on there and (I think) able to answer questions. They did that ostensibly to assure readers that they didn't have to worry about doctors practicing outside their core. But I guess given the MANY MANY docs opening med SPAS, they must bring RS advertising revenue.

I got locked out, too. I gave a local guy a negative review and they deleted it. Then I asked why it was deleted. The next thing I knew, my password didn't work.

I don't think that they want anyone who knows anything to use their site.
