How Brand and Personal Reputation is Built

U.S. entrepreneur Alvin Adam already in the mid-19th century spoke of public relations as the key to the success of any business. Today, the Internet is the main vehicle for relationships, so monitoring online reputation is critical. According to Nielsen, 97 percent of users before making a purchase inquire online: should a result with negative sentiment appear in the SERP regarding a service or product, it is clear that that user will decide not to buy.

The Brand Reputation Management activity offered by ByTek, always starts from a careful study of the SERPs and the competitors present, then the most suitable strategies are studied, which are communicated in maximum transparency to the client.

How to check Google SERPs

To check what the brand and personal reputation of a company or individual is, first of all the SERPs must be studied. Should negative sentiment emerge, an ad hoc strategy must be put in place to “clean it up” with a mix of actions that can be effective. This is because one action does not always get results; the reasons why it is not so easy to clean up some SERPs is the presence of blogs and forums.

Therefore, to get to the heart of the problem, a specific SEO Brand Protection must be carried out, i.e., an activity to control, monitor and correct the brand sentiment within the Google SERP.

SEO Brand Protection

The SERP is analyzed to identify ways to intervene through 4 main spaces:

  • Videos with negative sentiment positioned on the first page for the keywords examined;
  • Articles with negative sentiment placed in the top 12 positions in Google;
  • Images that do not conform to brand communication;
  • Reviews with negative sentiment.

Since it is not possible to make negative results disappear completely, the only possible action is to bring them down and make them less visible through a series of targeted interventions.

  • on-site interventions: new articles built to answer or preside over sensitive keys, to have higher SERP occupancy;
  • content creation on external but official sites or blogs: new articles that can answer or preside over sensitive keys;
  • digital PR: responses from official brand accounts on social environments and forums;
  • paid search: garrisoning the SERP through the creation of ad hoc ads and through the use of call outs and sitelinks;
  • guest blogging: activity conveyed through partnerships with reputable players capable of creating articles in support of the brand, capable of effectively manning the SERP.

Focusing on main comparative and informational keywords, critical issues will emerge and from the preliminary analysis the next actions and recommended interventions will be structured.

Creating content

The starting point of an SEO Brand Protection Strategy is an analysis of the current state of the online presence. One goes to study the site in question, trying to figure out whether it is optimized as best as possible for search engines, whether its online presence is massive or sparse. Creating an official referral source is key to improving reputation, as is improving existing content.

Creating optimized content that can climb the SERPs means kicking everything negative off the first page, bringing out only “the positive side.”

Managing social profiles

Millions of people every day exchange opinions and advice on the main social networks: controlling and taking care of the presence on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn is therefore essential, for any kind of business. Managing social profiles means not only taking care of one’s online reputation but also retaining new customers and consumers.
