Google’s long memory causes lasting damage
“The internet never forgets” wouldn’t cause so much misery if it wasn’t for Google being so good at reminding everyone.
Google’s stated mission is to “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”. What it hasn’t yet reconciled is how unfair and damaging that can be when the “information” being returned starts souring new relationships. Ruining business opportunities. Pausing careers. Stopping the flow of new business.
Whether you’re a business or an individual, unsavory results in a Google search for your name are an instant poison to your reputation that needs to be dealt with as soon as possible.Get a FREE Quote
The impact of negative search results
When negative results pop up beside your company name, it can stop people in their tracks before you’ve had a chance to interact. Online, your reputation is everything: a negative review, unpleasant article, or aggressive discussions about your business could all have a massive impact on performance.
Like any brand, a personal brand can be enormously tarnished by unwanted Google search results. Prospective employers, clients, or investors are all liable to look you up on Google. This goes double for jobs built on reputation: doctors, lawyers, and many other professionals rely on us to defend their online presence.
Often it’s not even something you’ve done: simple association with a negative event or disreputable company can cause long lasting damage.
Whatever your situation, unfortunately these are problems that rarely go away by themselves. Dealing with them immediately is the only way to limit the cost and damage.Get a FREE Quote
