Along with Google content removal, here are some tips that nobody told you about
managing your online reputation.
The internet is filled with information, insights, educational tools, and opinions.
While it isn’t bad to voice your opinion, where you voice it and specifically how you voice
it can be hurting your reputation.
Social Media Mishaps
Social media is the easiest way to slip into a state of false security. Social media is full
of opinions and arguments, misrepresentations, and baited articles that make it almost
impossible not to weigh in.
Resist the urge to blast off with your opinion, especially if it angers you. The
more you do it, the more these rants will be noticed and the more your reputation will
take a nosedive.
While writing content on your website is normally a far more conscious act than stating
your opinion, or saying something offensive elsewhere online, it still doesn’t mean
mistakes don’t happen.
What you might think is funny, might be more of an inside joke and come across as
being in bad taste.
So, while writing and reviewing content for your website, it’s importable to remember
that while you want your personality to shine online, you don’t want to forsake your
reputation in the process.
Blogs are meant to be a written and visual representation of your world. Blogs are often
highly personal, or in-depth to the field which you are passionate about.
However, blogs are also a place where it is easy to cross the line into racy or uncouth
comments. Since your blog is your own space, people tend to be lulled into a false
sense of security.
Although, you always should remember, everything you do online is on display. Even
though it’s your blog, its open for anyone to view, comment, and, unfortunately, judge
A Reputation’s Impact
Although, there are extenuating circumstances, generally, the impact of these issues on
a reputation depends on the intensity and consistency which you post them. If you put a
few comments on social media, it likely will not affect you as much as writing a
manifesto on your website or blog.
However, the more you post anything online, and the more attention the post gets, the
higher those posts appear in Google search results, in association with your reputation.
So, be careful.
How to Figure Out Google Content Removal
We all make mistakes…and before reading this, you might’ve never realized you were
even making a mistake.
Thankfully, Google content removal is possible, and easy, even if you aren’t the most
technology inclined individual.
First, you want to delete anything that you believe might be offensive or could possibly
be taken the wrong way.
So long as it hasn’t gone viral, and no one took a screenshot of it, it’s likely that your
reputation will remain reputable.
If for some reason you can’t delete whatever it is, don’t repeat the mistake. Stop
commenting possibly offensive posts and certainly don’t argue with people online via
social media or blog forums.
Eventually, that comment will lower in search results until it is on an obscure page that
few people will ever bother to find.
To close, the management of your reputation is important. These above tips are
designed to help prevent issues, as well as fix them. Either way, it’s important to ensure
your reputation, both personally and professionally becomes and perpetually remains
