If you haven’t already realized in the era of digital dependance and memory, your reputation is no longer verbal. Sure, the grape vine and gossip still flow in school, communities, and workplaces but your reputation was never recorded like it is now. Reputations are now completely recorded because they are online. If your mom, dad, boss, mentor, or educator has not told you yet, nearly everything you put on the Internet is permanent. The only to permanentlyis by legally getting a result or post removed which will take thousands upon thousands of dollars to do.
It is important to teach teenagers that are integrating with technology the importance or maintaining a clean online reputation. Online reputations should be handled with care, especially when at the repairing stage (which they should never get to). Unfortunately for some though, their reputations do get to that stage. The scariest part is that without litigation procedures, their online reputation is public forever. This could conflict with job opportunities, traveling opportunities, and all forms of opportunities.
Is there another way to get around it though? There are in fact other ways to repair online reputations without going to court. The other routes are just as expensive but will not cause as much emotional stress and is usually the first step before moving to litigation. This step is referred to as reverse search engine optimization. SEO experts use this technique to suppress the unwanted content to the second, then the third, then the fourth page of search results on Google, Bing, or Yahoo.It is important to know that only 2% of people go to the second page of Google search results which means that you are most visible on the first page. Ideally, on the 2nd or 3rd, only 2% of individuals are likely too see your online reputation.
