The world today relies on the Internet. There are several ways wherein it can help us in our daily lives. Online shopping, selling, socializing and the most of the common are online researching. Researching on the net is most widely used. It is the easiest, fastest and the most convenient medium to gather information. It is because most agencies upload most of their information over the web. Like for example if we researched our names, we can find information about us even if we didn’t record them.
This is the basic reason why some companies check their applicant background on the net. Information that wasn’t introduced and endorsed in the resume will surely be found on the net. But one of the things you wonder if you try to check your name on the net, you don’t dominate the entire first page of the search results. Why is it so? Well there are a lot of factors and those are basically understood by SEO experts but for a commoner, it is somehow confusing to know that why we have limited information when you have posted a lot of information in your Facebook account.
Well this is because Social Media Profiles like Facebook and also Twitter are both in the fourth box, which means they are just on the average rank. So basically, if you search your profile in Google, your Facebook account will rank fourth. This will be the conclusion that if you only have an account on Facebook then that’s the only thing that will come out of the search results and some of those information downloaded in the different agencies.
Why is it important to own or dominate the first page of the search results? As the research says, 94% of individuals only view the first page of the results. Some will no longer patience to move their research further on the next page. That is why it is important that you own the very first page of the search results.
Therefore if you wanted to dominate the whole first page of the search result the best way to do is to sign up any other site like Linkedin which ranks number three. This is a site where it shows personal information on the things that you can do. Also shows your educational background and the things that you have attained over the years. A blog site that will also show your personality and skills, which is also a big plus since it is somehow an intimate information about you that will give them an idea, for example if you’re a brilliant writer, on the things that you can do. Those two will surely give a big impact on your background since those two sites will give out good impression for any employer.
