How to Clean Up Your Online Presence For A Job

Have you Googled yourself lately? What comes up? Are there embarrassing pictures, stories you don’t want people to see or something else that nobody wants found?

If you’re active online, there’s a good chance information can easily be found just by Googling your name. This isn’t the best thing when you’re searching for a job. Your potential employers may Google you and find out all kinds of things you don’t want them to know.

There are ways to defend against this with good reputation management. Make sure you take care of all of the things on the following checklist before you start hunting for a job. If you don’t, it could be the reason you don’t get called in for an interview.

Check and Change your Social Media Settings

When it comes to your social media, you don’t have to be super public. You can change all of your settings to private and should before you start hunting for a job. There’s no reason to allow a potential employers to find something that gives off the wrong impression of you.

Most social media sites have a security section within the settings. This is the place to check and make sure it’s set to private before you move forward. It’s also helpful to know that some background and profile pictures may still be public. In some cases, you cannot hide these, so be aware of what they are and make sure they show you off in a professional way.

Avoid any Controversial Posts

If you make comments or posts on your social media that cause controversy, you could be rubbing someone the wrong way without knowing it. A potential employer may not agree with your political stance or something else about you. While they cannot fire you for this, they can decide to not interview you because of a post they found on Facebook.

Be aware of what your posting and don’t put anything controversial up for a while. Make sure you get the job before you go back to normal posting.

Change your Social Media Name

Nothing says you have

Why Should You Use Link Building?

Link building has been frowned upon, in some ways, when it comes to SEO. However, it’s still a very important strategy and works great, when done correctly. Since you cannot just build a website, add some content and expect people to find it, link building and other SEO strategies have to be employed.

If you already have quality content designed for good on-page SEO, you just need to start building good links. Here’s a look at why you should use link building and how to go about using it.

What is Link Building?

An SEO term used to describe the process of having another website or blog link to your website or blog from inside the content is known as link building. This helps to earn you a better ranking on Google and other search engines.

They value quality links over quantity, so buying a link building package isn’t always a good idea. However, when you acquire trustworthy links from large, authority website, it can make a huge difference. Getting these types of links regularly, will help turn your own website into an authority site.

Value of Top Quality Links

High quality links do a few things for your website. First, they give you a source of traffic. Second, they provide SEO benefits. Third, they help you create a new relationship. Google sees all of this as good and will give you more respect because of your links.

There was a time when the quantity of links trumped everything. Today, it’s all about quality and one high quality link can be far better than hundreds of low quality links. Getting high quality links has to be the goal instead of just getting any links.

A high quality link comes from a site relevant to what your site is about. For example, if you run a web hosting site, it would make sense for an internet security site to link to information found on your site. However, it makes less sense for a store selling cookware to link to your site.

The other part of high quality links is the authority

Services
Your choice when selecting a Dedicated Server should prioritize high performance and availability. Better still, is a decision that encompasses both these elements at a fair price. No problem for URUSTAR, because each Dedicated Server has its own 100 Mbit switch port which it is connected directly to our own ultra-fast Gigabit backbone. That way, we can deliver a high performance average as well as the guaranteed availability of at least 99% (99.9% for ProServers). And due to excellent Ping times, our Dedicated Servers are also ideal as game servers.

Security

Reliable availability is important for both you and us! That is why we give you a guarantee that your server is available at least 99% of the time as an annual mean. We even take one step further regarding our ProServers and guarantee an availability of 99.9% annual mean. This is especially important for business applications, when server breakdowns can easily lead to financial and image losses.

 
Colocation

A dedicated hosting service, dedicated server, or managed hosting service is a type of Internet hosting in which the client leases an entire server not shared with anyone else. This is more flexible than shared hosting, as organizations have full control over the server(s), including choice of operating system, hardware, etc. Server administration can usually be provided by the hosting company as an add-on service. In some cases a dedicated server can offer less overhead and a larger return on investment. Dedicated servers are most often housed in data centers, similar to colocation facilities, providing redundant power sources and HVAC systems. In contrast to colocation, the server hardware is owned by the provider and in some cases they will provide support for your operating system or applications.

Using a dedicated hosting service offers the benefits of high performance, security, email stability, and control.[1] Due to the relatively high price of dedicated hosting, it is mostly used by websites that receive a large volume of traffic.

 
Dedicated hosting

A dedicated hosting service, dedicated server, or managed hosting service is a type of Internet hosting in which the client leases an entire server not shared with anyone else. This is more flexible than shared hosting, as organizations have full control over the server(s), including choice of operating system, hardware, etc. Server administration can usually be provided by the hosting company as an add-on service. In some cases a dedicated server can offer less overhead and a larger return on investment. Dedicated servers are most often housed in data centers, similar to colocation facilities, providing redundant power sources and HVAC systems. In contrast to colocation, the server hardware is owned by the provider and in some cases they will provide support for your operating system or applications.

Using a dedicated hosting service offers the benefits of high performance, security, email stability, and control.[1] Due to the relatively high price of dedicated hosting, it is mostly used by websites that receive a large volume of traffic.
