Fix your online presence quickly and easily...

In a world where your online reputation is just as important as your offline one you need to make sure you know what your business contacts will find if they decide to run a Google search on you. Your Google results have become your calling card and are what people will use to base their first impressions on so make sure that vital first impression is what you want to be known for.

With most business contacts and recruiters now routinely checking search engines to find out more information about potential contacts and candidates, ensuring your Google results reflect the personal brand you want to portray should now be a key tool in your business armoury.

When it comes to your Google CV one of the first things you need to do is to Google yourself to find out what contacts would find if they searched your name. Now, if you don’t feature in the top ten results you don’t exist in the eyes of the internet. Having little to no trace online in this digital age can seriously work against you. To find no hint of personality in the black hole that is the world wide web can be unsettling for recruiters and business contacts and may put them off hiring you or doing business with you so make sure what they will find will reflect a true portrayal of you.

If you’re every single one of the top ten results – congratulations! You either have a very distinctive name or are famous. You still have to ask yourself whether these results give a true picture of your professional experience and skills to your business contacts. If not, read on…
