Can Existing Online Reputation Management Problems Get Worse Over Time (For Individuals)?
For Individuals, the answer is – generally no, believe it or not, at least, not the way they can for businesses, although every case is different. Individuals face unique Online Reputation Management challenges. Generally, Individuals have a problem with things that have happened to them in the past or at some point in their lives that are now showing up on Google in some form or another. These unflattering things, like articles about a disturbance of the peace that occurred while a person was in college, or bad financial data (about a house being foreclosed upon perhaps), which are now showing up on the internet, can be extremely harmful to a person’s chances of getting a job (among other things). People change, over the course of their lives, and an event that happened 10 years ago or long in the past should not reflect peoples' reputations now.
Usually however, for individuals, there are only one or two articles in question, and usually they rank very highly on Google on the first or second page, depending on how common the person’s name is and what other listings are already part of their page rankings. But the key to understanding it is, unlike businesses, usually one offending article doesn’t lead to the creation of another, and another, and another, creating more bad reviews and listings and spiraling out of control and creating a great deal of bad press; for individuals, the key is usually to deal with the smaller number of articles already there, rather than worry about new ones popping up unexpectedly (per se, although every case is different). A targeted ORM Campaign is needed to repress the listing(s) in question, making sure they can never harm an individual’s reputation again.
However, for individuals, it is possible the offending articles can move HIGHER in the Google rankings over time, so it’s best to deal with these problems right away, and an ORM Campaign is just the thing to take care of it.
