What is ORM in SEO?

One of the most popular questions we hear every day on our calls with our clients is, “How does SEO help my online reputation”. 

 

The answer is simple, SEO is everything when it comes to the internet. SEO otherwise known as search engine optimization allows you to notify Google, Bing, Yahoo or any other search engine exactly what your article is about and why it is important.

 

When done properly your published content can potentially reach the first page of each SERP (search engine results page). 

 

Once you perfect this art of using keywords and optimal placement you have the opportunity to outrank much larger sites and reach the “all desired” number one position on the first page.

 

But why is ORM in SEO so important? Why does our team spend countless hours constantly monitoring and updating the content we share? 

 

Because you have to, plain and simple. If you know how your competitors are writing you can take it up a notch to beat them. This is done using more relevant photos, infographics, tips from other articles that they may have missed and much more.

Digital Marketing Meets ORM & SEO

What does Digital Marketing have anything to do with ORM or SEO? In short, it has everything to do with these two topics. 

 

ORM or online reputation management is the way individuals and businesses manage their reputation online. Whether it’s through their own media or from third-parties (media outlets and PR companies). Digital marketing at its core is ORM.

 

ORM & SEO

ORM & SEO

 

SEO plays the role of optimizing your Digital Marketing efforts while working to improve your overall online reputation management strategy

 

For example, let’s say you are a startup company with little to no notoriety within your existing industry. How you market yourself online forms the groundwork for how others will perceive you at first glance. It creates that first impression where consumers will either enter your website or store or walk away for good.

 

Here are some of the most well known Digitial Marketing strategies thus far in 2019:

  1. SEO 
  2. Search Engine Marketing
  3. Content Marketing (Social media, etc)
  4. Remarketing (reaching consumers who previously engaged with your content)
  5. Email Marketing (still one of the best marketing methods and has been for decades)
  6. Social Media Marketing (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc)

 

What Are The Differences Between ORM and SEO?

Here at GuaranteedRemoval, we work with our clients to create and improve upon existing online content in order to have it rank favorably within the eyes of Google, Bing, and Yahoo.

 

Anyone can purchase a website, post blogs and photos and hope their content reaches the front pages of the search results. However, by implementing traditional and modern ORM in SEO practices you can essentially quicken or expedite the process.

 

By utilizing various relevant keywords and meta descriptions you can work your way around Google’s algorithm in a sense and gain more traffic onto your desired platform. Or you can quickly hide negative information that may be appearing on Google.

 

Differences Between ORM and SEO

 

Restructuring Search Engine Results

What do we mean by this? Is there a magic trick to editing how Google looks?

 

Well no, but there are various things you can try in order to optimize pre-existing and new publications in order to rank positively on each respective search engine.

 

As we previously mentioned search engine optimization (SEO) is the way you input certain words into your blog posts, online portfolios, images, and press releases so Google, as well as the other search engines, know exactly what you are talking about.  Here are other factors and influence your SEO efforts:

 

  • Having a secured domain or HTTPS (not HTTP)
  • Page Speed (clean up the look, compress files, and more)
  • Mobile Friendliness (in 2010 everyone has a smartphone, you cannot skip this step)
  • Age of Domain
  • Optimized Content (keywords, photos, etc)
  • Backlinks
  • User Experience (or behavioral flow)

 

Online marketing means you can consistently edit and revamp your website and other media to outrank others or to flood negative content off of the first page.

 

One of the best tips here is to only publish high-quality content. These means do not simply recreate another website’s article and add more pictures. Find out what they missed and elaborate on the gaps. This can be done by inserting keywords into the title tags and going more in-depth on the product and service being offered to the end-user.

 

Creating a High Authority with ORM in SEO

If you are a newly established website and struggling to reach the front page of Google it is more or less due to you having little authority online.

 

If you spend a lot of time on YouTube looking for better ways to increase your traffic you have probably heard of the name Neil Patel. He is excellent at what he does and a true ORM in SEO guru, however, his website received tons of traffic so anything he writes is quickly going to find its way to the front page. It is easier said than done, so more note that implements what Neil says will most likely not do the trick. 

 

As for you, the new website, it is going to take you on average 6-12 months before you start to see a steady increase in website traffic thus making your SEO journey slower than already established websites. 

 

High Authority with ORM in SEO

High Authority with ORM in SEO

 

In order to increase your authority online one of the best tips again is to publish high-quality content. This will open up opportunities for other websites to link to you! This increases not only the trust score of your website but over time after hundreds of backlinks, your rankings will explode.

 

If I were to start a new website today I would spend 50% of my time looking for other websites that may benefit from an article I have written. You simply email them (locate emails using hunter.io) and request a backlink and in exchange, you can possibly write an entire article about them on your website. However, if your content has great insights they may not need anything in return.

 

Good SEO practices, a solid ORM strategy and constantly generating new backlinks should have your website sitting comfortably on the first page in about 12 months.

 

Is ORM in SEO A Long-term Solution?

When creating an ORM in SEO strategy it is important to note that the results may take many months but this is a long-term and scalable solution to manage your online reputation.

 

It is important to publish content on a daily basis while you are working to improve your online reputation. ORM companies such as GuaranteedRemoval work around the clock to curate, design, publish and optimize every piece of content that we release.

 

The goal of your SEO strategy is to own the top search results for the keywords in your industry. For example, if you are a small gym and are looking to attract new clients you may focus on the following keywords to better optimize your gym’s exposure online.

  • Gym Near Me (1,000,000 Monthly Searches)
  • Gyms Near Me (673,000 Monthly Searches) – noticed how big this difference is…
  • Crossfit Gym Near Me (18,1000 Monthly Searches)
  • Best Gym Near Me (12,100 Monthly Searches)

 

There are a plethora of tools used to assist you in discovering what keywords work best for you. We prefer SEMRush or AHRefs.

 

Can ORM in SEO Handle Negative Reviews Online?

Yes and no. ORM in SEO is not a saving grace when looking to combat all forms of negativity online. 

 

Review platforms such as Yelp, Google My Business, TripAdvisor, and even TrustPilot have strict guidelines when you are looking to remove or suppress a review. Yelp is easy if you do not pay for advertising they probably won’t show that many reviews anyways.

 

However, if you are dealing with a negative review on the first page of Google and they do not meet the criteria below you may need to implement ORM in SEO in order to hide the negative review.

 

Negative Reviews Online

Negative Reviews Online

 

Negative reviews happen and sometimes for no reason at all. Sometimes people just have a bad day and take it out on your brand however statistics should consumers are 80% less likely to do business with a brand that has recently obtained a bad review.

 

Our goal here at GuaranteedRemoval.com is to ensure your clients were not only be satisfied but provide feedback about their experience. You can incentivize these individuals with gift cards and discounts off their next purchase with you (i.e. via remarketing efforts).

Using Online Reputation to Protect Yourself From Online Embarrassment

What is online reputation management? For those of you who are new to reputation management, online reputation management or ORM is the art of restoring, maintaining and monitoring the online presence or notoriety of either an individual or a business.

 

When you share personal information online it is important to remember how large the internet is and how many people use it on a daily basis. Even if you are a normal person with a minimal presence online that does not mean you should stop worrying about cyber threats.

 

There are millions of cyber threats each year such as identity theft that cripple individuals not only financially but these threats could be an everlasting effect on relationships you have both on and offline. 

 

It is better to start from scratch than to restore a negative reputation

 

As you work to build and establish a name for yourself online it is important that you focus your efforts heavily on social media, press releases self-promotions, and SEO (if you have a personal website about yourself).

 

The most powerful of the three would be the distribution of press releases. Head over to Google and search for local news outlets in your area. Reach out to them and see if they offer a paid service where you write the press release and they publish it on their website for a fee.

 

Therefore, press releases are a sure-fire way to have new content reach the first front pages of Google, Bing, and Yahoo. 

 

Next, share those press releases via your social media accounts to gain more exposure. 

 

Lastly, you can copy and paste your new release onto a custom website. Optimize it in hopes of obtaining another spot on Google’s SERPs.

Locating individuals on websites such as Facebook has become so simple that it is often shocking at how easy it is to find people online. For example, let’s say you met another person during a night out with your friends, all you have is their first name along with knowing where they’re from, or where they grew up.

Search Results (Google, Bing, and Yahoo)

90% of online users say they visit Google in search for answers to all of their questions. This is why it is crucial that you ensure your search results are not only positive but rid of personal information.

 

But what is the best way to locate someone instantly when scouring Google, Bing, and Yahoo for their information?

 

The best way to narrow down a search engine results page is by placing the main keywords (their name) without quotation marks. This helps Google narrow down the results and only show you websites where that individual’s first, middle, and last name are present. Typically reducing the pages available for search from several hundred to a dozen pages or less.

 

For example, if you are looking for an individual names John Smith that you met at a networking event in Tampa, Florida this is how you could locate John’s information:

 

Head over to Google and within the search field or search box you would type in the following:

  • “John Smith Tampa”
  • “John Smith” Tampa
  • “John Smith Tampa Florida”

 

These will narrow down all of the prompted results to show only individuals names John Smith associated with Tampa, Florida.

 

Without adding in the quotation marks you will be left filling through hundreds of useless pages before you find any information at all (if you even get that far).

 

Remove Search Results

 

Mugshot Publication Websites

Now there are is a plethora of reason why someone would need to find another individual online. Whether it be for employment, datings or simply making a new business connection. People are some sort of information that desires to find.

 

Mugshot websites are one of the leading searches online in 2018-2019.

Our removal team has the ability to remove mugshots and criminal records from over 500+ websites so if you are seeing your criminal history or someone you know please contact us as soon as possible to see what options are available to you.

 

Utilizing People Search Websites

A simple web search on websites such as TruthFinder, MyLife, WhitePages, InstantCheckmate and many more disclose information such as the following for anyone to see:

  • Name & Birthday
  • Email Addresses
  • Phone Numbers
  • Physical Home Address
  • Relatives (family members and friends)

7 Branding Mistakes to Avoid

7 Mistakes to Avoid When Building an Online Brand

Common Branding Mistakes

Branding Mistakes

You’re building an online brand, which means you’re trying to dominate your target market and rise above your competitors. You believe you have all of the right tools, but for some reason, your online presence is not as large as you wish for it to be.

 

This means you are making some of the common branding mistakes that businesses around the globe have made when they first began building their online brand. These mistakes are prevalent amongst newcomers to building their online brand and can hurt their credibility and authority online, which is why it is so crucial to avoid these branding mistakes. Without further adieu, here are seven mistakes to avoid when building an online brand.

 

The most common branding mistakes to avoid when building and monitoring your online brand include the following:

 

1. Not Standing Out

 

Why do you think that companies like Apple, Facebook, or Twitter stand out among the crowd? This is because they were some of the first companies to do what they were doing. Instead of modeling other businesses and competitors, they took their own approach and did their best at becoming different from everyone else. Instead of attempting to blend in with the crowd, try to stand out and become something unique.

 

Internet users love to boast about finding the newest application, product or service online. By differentiating yourself from industry standards you can put your company on the map quickly.

 

Many business owners examine what their competitors do, and simply mimic those strategies. They think, “Well if this company is succeeding while using this method, I will simply emulate what they’re doing and succeed as well!”, sadly this is often a direction for mixing into the group, instead of standing out.

2. Inconsistency

 

Consumers do not like to feel like they are confused about what you have to offer. Confusion can usually lead to consumers being distrustful and ultimately steer them away from your brand. For example, if one day you are posting updates on Twitter about how you are empathetic about a certain situation, and then the next day completely changes your tone to something more angry and harsh, then your followers will be extremely confused on what you are really feeling. This is why making sure that what you post is consistent and reliable and easy for your consumers to understand will steer them toward you instead of away.

 

In addition, remain consistent by always posting at the same times throughout the day. This creates further engagement as after awhile individuals will go onto Facebook at 5 pm because they know you will be posting new content. They want to see what is new with you and what new products/services you may have to offer.

 

Learn how on how to effectively grow your brand and combat negativity by learning how to remove articles from the internet.

 

 

3. Branding Elements & Value Don’t Match

 

You want to make sure that your colors, fonts, voice, etc. are all consistent with your values and overall what your business stands for. It is important to make sure that your branding elements and values match up to make sure that your consumers do not get confused about what you have to offer.

 

Believe it or not, if your branding colors do not match up with what you have to offer, this can deter individuals from purchasing from you due to the uncertainty of what your product really may be. Matching branding elements and values are key for building your online brand.

 

 

4. Losing Your Cool on Social Media

 

This happens quite frequently today and can cost companies tons of business. If the owner (you) of a company is seen online tweeting or posting racial slurs, arguing with consumers, or dishing out insults to competitors, it may cause customers to avoid doing business with you in the future.

 

I know it sounds like something most people would know not to do, but at the moment it can be hard to reason with yourself why you should avoid this. Overall, interacting with consumers in a negative way (especially online) can just lead to customer loss and hurt you more than anyone else. Therefore, avoid losing your cool on social media!

5. Not Monitoring Online Views

 

It is essential to monitor your online views when trying to build your brand. When consumers are trying to find a company to do business with or buy a product from, they usually will look to the reviews to see what others have to say.

 

If you are not monitoring your reviews online, you are not only not viewing what positive things customers are saying about you, but also not viewing what customers dislike about your business. Also, you are leaving these customers without a response from you. When you leave a response, it shows consumers that you are working to improve your business and your product.

 

Overall, monitoring your reviews online will aid your business by developing more consumer insight and locate the aspects of your business that customers can do without.

 

 

6. Customers Can Not Find You Online

 

If customers can not find you online, of course, you are not going to be able to improve your personal brand. If your social media platforms and website is not properly optimized for your customers to be able to find you easily, then you are missing out on significant opportunities, followers, traffic, and leads for your business.

 

You need to ensure that when someone Google’s your business name that you are on the front page (preferably the first result) and that you are able to easily be found. Read more about Google reputation management!

 

 

Customers Can Not Find You Online

 

 

7. Not Monitoring Mentions of Your Brand

 

If you are unaware of what people are saying about your business online, then how can you address any feedback or potential concerns? Staying on top of what people are saying about you online will ensure that you are immediately available to people that have any questions.

 

You can make sure and always be aware of what people are saying about you online through utilizing tools such as Social Mention, Hootsuite, and Google Alerts.

 

Another way to manage and control your online presence is through the utilization of online reputation management. Online reputation management has become a key component within businesses that wish to improve their overall online presence and further build their brand online.

 

Online reputation management can also remove personal information from Google that comes up about you or your company online and ensures for you to have a positive online image to your future employers and consumers.

In 2018, almost everyone has access to the internet whether it is via a smartphone or on a computer at home. While uploading photos to Facebook or Instagram may be fun, you need to keep in mind that everyone in the world now has access to your photo(s). It is essential to maintain a high level of security while writing or posting online.

Let us break down the top reasons why we feel you need to keep your personal information private. Personal reputation is how you are perceived by the world as an individual. It is the first thing anyone thinks about you when they hear your name or see your photo online. We all know that one friend that posts on Instagram 10x a day and updates his/her Facebook status regularly. You begin to form opinions about individuals that you have never even met by the way they carry themselves online. While most of this is under your control, you need to be cautious of what others do with that information you are publishing.

Top Reasons Why Should Keep Your Personal Information Private

 

Identity Theft

In this digital era, we are utilizing more online applications to manage our everyday lives. Ensuring your social media accounts and banking information is secure is not difficult if you follow some easy to learn steps. Identity theft is when an individual unlawfully obtains personal/private information about someone in order to impersonate them (mostly for) financial gain.

You can avoid these cyber-attacks by using different passwords on every website. This the most simple and effective way to stop identity theft. Many individuals use one or two passwords for everything. This is great for yourself and so you can remember but what happens when a hacker finds that one password, they now have access to everything! Therefore, creating passwords that are alpha-numeric with at least 12 characters is the way to go. If you use letters, numbers and special characters there are over 1 Trillion variations the hacker will need to attempt. Making this task nearly impossible and in turn, safeguarding your information for good. Change your passwords every couple of months.

The next step you should take to keep your personal information private would be to opt-out from any and all background reporting databases. These sites report your exact address, links to your social media accounts and even friends and family members. Removing yourself from these 40+ sites will make the task of finding your personal information even more difficult for any hacker. Lastly, make sure you constantly monitor all of your accounts for possible discrepancies. By monitoring your accounts, you will know instantly if something is wrong as you can resolve the issue before it gets bigger.

 

Future Job Opportunities

Next, sites like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are morphing into your “second resume”. This is where potential employers can get a good sense of your personality, an easy way to gauge if you are the right fit for their company. Unless your profile is private, refrain from posting political or religion based posts as this may hinder any job opportunities that come your way in the future. Do not walk into your next interview blind, review your social accounts prior to applying for a position to have the best chance of getting the job.

Credit Scams

This may seem fairly straightforward for many millennials, however, for the older users of the internet, this is very important. When you are online, there are some easy indicators you can see to instantly reassure you that the site you are on is secure. Most importantly find out if a site is ‘secure’. This is simply done by looking at the website address. When you type in Google.com, there is an https:// placed before the web address. This is the SSL telling you this site is secure “https://. If there is no ‘s’ that site is not secure.

As we start to drift away from cash to plastic credit/debit cards this open new doors for cyberhackers. When setting up your cards, again make the passwords unique and change them monthly. In addition, use a PIN nobody can guess. This means to refrain from using addresses or birthday! As annoying this can seem it will benefit you in the long run by making yourself almost invincible to cyber attacks. Next time you are visiting your bank ask them about setting up secondary privacy questions, this will automatically lock someone out after too many wrong attempts.
