Steps To Restore Your Online Reputation and Good Name

reputation (noun) - the state of being held in high esteem and honor (especially by the community or the public generally) ::: Origin: 1325–75; Middle English reputacioun

Your reputation is the biggest asset you have. Just as a garden needs weeding and tending, the modern computer-internet-oriented world mandates your good name be kept strong and safe.

"As for taking a good man’s name from him, you might as well undertake to pull goose-quills from the wings of an angel" —Elbridge G. Dow, Jr.

Have you googled your name recently?

You might be surprised at what you find. In some cases, repairing one's reputation can be tantamount to survival and social life. If your "good name" does not appear good, don't be disheartened... despite the internet trolls and psycho-stalkers out to destroy you, you can also make alliances with good people. You can also "go the commercial route" and avail yourself of services aimed at righting your sinking reputation.

The technical term is REPUTATION MANAGEMENT and it can save your digital life!

You can take the sharp edges off of unflattering search engine listings by pushing positive content online... one way of doing that is to embark on a three-pronged social campaign:

(1) Start a blog - make sure it gets indexzed by Google and fill it with the most positive or informational original articles you can create. Upload a fresh piece at least once a day: more is better.

(2) Hop on twitter - tweet often and make sure anything you tweet or re-tweet casts you in a POSITIVE light

(3) Get an account on LinkedIn (if you are a pro) or Facebook, and again, the key to a successful future is POSITIVE and ORIGINAL material. Don't be afraid to flood the social network of your choice with good stuff.

All of the above will help push the "bad stuff" father down in search engine rankings. Keep an upbeat, positive attitude. Stay focused, and you will make changes!

Your "grand finale" - the "icing on the cake" - will come at the hands of a fine reputation restoration firm.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
