If someone is going to search for your name or business on Google, how many of the results are going to be yours and how many will lead elsewhere?
One of the best ways to dominate the first page of search results is to setup as many social profiles and resume pages as you can. Most of us are already on Twitter, Google+ and Facebook, but there are plenty of other sites that will rank very well for your name as well. These include sites like Slideshare, LinkedIn, Pinterest and others.
Another site that you will need to add to your resume and social arsenal is Completed.com. The goal behind the site is to compete with the likes of LinkedIn, but allowing their users to put a lot more information on their pages while also getting more personal and detailed in the process.
You can take a look at my Zac Johnson Completed.com profile below. You will notice that it includes a bio pic, full written bios (past, present and future) along with a lot of other fun information such as core competencies, life milestones, career history, education and much more.
When completed.com was created they wanted to make sure their profiles would rank well in the search results. This is crucial for not only completed.com to become an authority resume site, but it will also make the content more valuable as well.
Once you start setting up your profile and fill in your bio details you will see that the site tells you to continually include your personal or business name. Obviously this will help with the overall ranking process.
What’s cool about Completed.com is that it’s catered for both individuals and businesses. Since businesses and individuals have different goals and information about each, you can compare my personal profile with the Brand.com profile below. You will notice the products/services, office information, core values and mission statements. All great stuff for providing more information about your company while also gaining another powerful ranking in the search engines as well.
There is no cost to setup a resume page with Completed.com, so be sure to set one up today for both yourself and your business. Put in enough time and effort and soon you may dominate the whole first page of the search rankings for your name!
