Chris Morales Online Profile - Week 6 Update

When I started 6 weeks ago my reputation score was 350...'Poor'.  Now 6 weeks in it's up to 591 and showing 'Good'.  Yes I've fallen for the online reputation game but in the process I've cleaned up and focused my online profile to highlight more of the things I want to focus on.

In first page rankings, 'Chris Morales' is now solidly on Page 1 above the fold.  Images are still now where they should be...this will be the focus moving forward.

For the next week the focus is on Images...getting them to show in Google searches.  The strategy is to upload more images and alt tag each one with my name, 'Chris Morales'.

Chris Morales Online Profile - Week 5 Update

As I rolled through week 4 I got some tips on how to further improve my Chris Morales Online Profile.  Thanks Mike!  He suggested I focus for the next few weeks on tagging my public/online photographs with alt tags, Chris Morales.  That will be the focus for the upcoming week.



Since last week, I've moved to Premium on both LinkedIn and BrandYourself.  I've experienced a positive lift in exposure on LinkedIn and seen my reputation move from 'Average' to 'Fair' on BrandYourself...both positive. For next week I'll continue curating my online reputation on BrandYourself with the goal of moving from 'Fair' to 'Good'

Chris Morales Online Profile - Week 4 Update

The dog days of summer...that's what it feels like this week.  Maybe it's time to take a vacation especially with the hot weather we get to enjoy this week in Toronto!

But wait...

Online results are improving.  'Chris Morales' now appears consistently in the top 3 page one search results!



The goals next week:
  1. Update to Premium on LinkedIn for 1 month to improve the visits on that platform
  2. Update to Premium on BrandYourself to clean up my Social Media profile and Online Reputation.

Chris Morales Online Profile - Week 3 Update

I'm 3 weeks into this exercise to improve my online profile and must confess that this past week has been a drag!  Yes I completed the tasks I set for myself (Chris Morales Online Profile - Week 2 Update).  But because I didn't see any immediate results, I was bummed out!

Things turned around when I got an email prompt from BrandYourself (Chris Morales profile).  It suggested some updates and revisions to my LinkedIn profile and with 20 minutes to spare, I got at it.  A few days later when I searched again for 'Chris Morales', I got the above results:
  1. My LinkedIn profile showed up for the first time in the #1 position
  2. My biography on George Brown College ranked #2
  3. No images showed up on this search
I'm very pleased with the progress to-date.  Since starting this exercise with a flurry of activity (about 2 hours work), I'm now spending only about 30 minutes each week to tweek my profiles, AboutMe, BrandYourself, YouTube and LinkedIn.  Next week, more of the same.

Chris Morales Online Profile - Week 2 Update

After 2 weeks I am pleased to note that one of my image is now showing at the top of the search results page! It's nice to get confirmation that I'm moving in the right direction...and I'm super pleased with how little time it takes to get results.


In my last update I had two tasks to get done:  Clean up my Twitter profile and work on YouTube.  I got Twitter cleaned up but ran into a challenge on YouTube:  I had two personal profiles and spent a large amount of my allotted time deleting one account.  In the process I did not get as far as I wanted with tidying up the remaining YouTube account.  That will be rectified this upcoming week with these set tasks:
  1. Finish cleaning up my YouTube account
  2. Update my About.me profile
  3. Update my BrandYourself profile 
I'm still following the tips and suggestions in How to Improve your Personal Online Reputation.   So far the recommendations seem to be working.
