If you’re feeling frustrated because you’re not ranking higher in search engines, then this episode is for you! SEO for your personal name? Yes, it’s a thing! Here’s how to do it:

“Don’t let a Googling surprise happen to you.”

I was at CEX a few months ago when I got a surprise. They gave us name tags with our name and a QR code on it that led to a Google search results page for our name. When I Googled my name, I was shocked to see that I didn’t come up first. In fact, I wasn’t even in the top three. Someone else with a similar name had taken my spot. This made me realize that I needed to work on my personal SEO. I needed to make sure that I was coming up first when people searched for me. I started by making sure that all my social profiles had the same picture and bio. I also worked on getting some quality backlinks. I made sure that any time I was mentioned in an article or podcast it linked to my website, not my social profiles.
