The fact that the majority of high ranking domains are social platforms works to our advantage. This is because we can gain control of these powerful domains!
So when you look at a social profile, look at it like a piece on a chessboard that can be used tactfully. In Chess, the person who generally wins is who utilizes all their pieces in unison!
How many Social Profiles Should You Have?
Google does not always allow social profiles and Youtube videos to be used for every search query/term within its index.
This is because some search terms Google profits by selling the keyword/query through their Adwords adverting. However, in the case of your name, it’s game on for social profiles, as nobody is bidding on your name!
So, therefore, the Fortification Using Web Property Hoarding strategy, the more social profiles you use, the better! Here is a massive list of social platforms I found on Wikipedia.
Google typically only has a maximum of 100-150 search results for a given keyword or search query term. So Our goal is to rank and control the bulk of the domains and properties for the keyword, in this case, our name.
Because by doing so, we will then control what is shown and available to the general public within the search results!
Owning The Web Property Is Ideal.
Any website that you own, naturally you have complete control over, and its content is much more difficult to have removed by an attacker.
I’ve had my online stalker get my content removed with false DMCA claims for instance. So the idea is to have our website 1st in the search results.
However, ranking our web domain will take time. While a domain is gaining authority and ranking from backlinks, we should focus on social platforms. Furthermore, our goal is to take up the entire first page of a search engine.
Since each domain address can only at the most take up two spots, use several to execute Fortification Using Web Property Hoarding!
What I mean is, say for instance you just created a domain. Because it hasn’t even been indexed it isn’t capable of immediately ranking within search results.
You can, however, create a Twitter profile, and have it at the top of search results within a few hours! Youtube and Facebook being placed at the top of Alexa you’d think they’d be the quickest to index in Google. However, this isn’t the case.
Eventually, these platforms will play a substantial role in our longterm Fortification Using Web Property Hoarding.
However, these aren’t the quickest to be indexed. For some reason, the two I have found to index into Google the quickest is Twitter and using a free WordPress subdomain.
Multiple Users One Property
During your reputation management research, you might encounter fake profiles intended for slander.
Should you choose to outrank the profile itself rather it results in search results. Google will typically only index 1, and at the most 2 social profiles.
So outranking the profile within the platform quite often is an effective technique! So What exactly determines who wins the race for getting indexed?
Say a dozen or so companies get into a skirmish over the keyword “dog toys” what will determine a winner? Certain varying rank factors, social signals, and traffic quantity are used in determining a winner.
These Social Signals differ from platform to platform (Likes, Favorites, Pins, Reblogs, etc).
The biggest determining factors used to calculate a profile’s strength are called social signals.
The strongest signal on Twitter, for example, would be Retweets. So if one of the users has more pieces of content and more retweets than the other competitors, their augmentation will make them the winner!
Once that battle has been won the next question, someone, one conducting reputation management would ask is where it places on Google?
There are about 200 theorized ranking factors of Google. These factors are determined as a result of Google’s algorithm.
One thing is for certain, the amount of social responses on a particular keyword plays a huge role!
This is exactly why often times extortionists will harbor 1000s of accounts on several different social platforms.
with this black hat tactic, they are able to slander targets and index their hateful messages
