Search engines have burned me like this before too.  In one case, an
unapproved comp was showing up as the number two hit for a search of the
company's name(!!).  Luckily, no clients have ever brought this up, and
I'm now very careful about where I post links to anything client-related.

I have no suggestions on how to undo the damage done in your case, unless
you can get some administrative help in removing those posts from the
archives, or removing the offending terms/names.  Then, wait for the
search engines to realize the change, in their typical slothly manner.
