Sometimes, for some people, and for whatever reason, there may be a web page listing on the search engines for your name that you’d rather not be there. While you are unlikely to be able to have it removed, there is action you can take to bury the offending link buried further down the search engines.
For most people this will be a strange idea, but for some it’s good to know that there are things you can do yourself.
So – how do you go about this.
The most immediate activity is to register with social media and networking websites. Most of these will list your profile page on the search engines, and of course any additional activity bringing attention to those profiles will help.
Visit the following, join and create your profile on each:
- Business Scene
- BT Tradespace
- The Results Academy
- FastPitch Networking
- UK Business Forum
- UK Business Labs
- Connect Buzz
- Business Directory UK
- Business Balls
- Friends Reunited
This is indeed a motley selection, and there will be many more that you can make use of – some may even be useful in other ways, some more relevant to you, and of course you can do a search for people you know to see what results are useful for you to consider.
If you have any articles to submit, use those on the above and on other article submission sites such as www.articlefeedster.com and www.articlehot.com – and then of course get your buddies to stumble, digg and generally bring you more attention (more on this later in the month).
If you don’t want or need to create your own blog, perhaps consider a Squidoo lens instead – go and have a look to see if it suits you – and it would be another recent addition to your own search placement.
Enough for now – let me know how you get on, of your suggestions, and if you want to know more.
