Online Reputation Fire Break Explained
Google is either your friend or worst enemy. In their own words, Google is “…the biggest kingmaker on this Earth”. Based on the Arab Spring and other recent world events, it is probably true. If so, then it follows that Google is also “the biggest humiliator on this earth”. After all, most businesses today stand or fall based on their Google search results.
The simple fact is, if you do not take control of Google search results for your name, or your business name, then a competitor will probably do it for you, and that will almost always end badly.
If you have a wooden home in the middle of a dry prairie, then one spark will burn everything down. But, if you plant green grass around the home, and cut back the dry tinder, then the chances of disaster are greatly diminished; so it is with online reputation management.
It is a must to publish and promote enough interesting, relevant, positive content that contains your name, your brand and any other important search terms. This fills up the first two or three pages of Google search results. This is no small task because Google has a mind of its own. But do not be discouraged. This site offers free help to reduce the toil and boredom that comes with this essential requirement of every Business continuity and disaster recovery Plan (BCDR).
