The duration of a personal online reputation management campaign varies and depends heavily on the following factors:
- The type or mix of services you choose (reputation management, personal branding, content suppression/removal) and how aggressive you want to be with each one.
- The current status of your online reputation. The greater the amount of high authority content the more difficult and time consuming it is to suppress.
- Changes to Google’s algorithms. Our team of SEO specialists are always up to date with algorithm changes and adjust strategies as necessary. However, we cannot predict what these changes will be, nor how they will affect the work that has already been completed.
- The law. We operate solely with whitehat techniques and if there are changes in the law that affect how we do things we must abide by them and adjust moving forward.
We typically recommend maintenance and monitoring plans. These consist of continuation in content creation and promotion to ensure that:
- any undesired information stays off the first page of Google
- Your personal brand continues to grow and your positive online presence continues to develop.
Our maintenance programs consist of making subtle changes to the assets we previously created to ensure they stay fresh and relevant in different search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo. These maintenance plans are designed to ensure that you still control your online presence once our initial campaign has been completed.
Our monitoring plans are twofold. We continue to investigate and analyze your personal brand sentiment, making recommendations if we see any red flags, as well as audit any new content that surfaces for anything potentially damaging. Want us to investigate anything more specific? We will happily customize your monitoring plan to include any additional aspects you want us to keep an eye on.
