Control What Page Ranks #1
On The First Page Of Search
Engines For Your Own Name

When you are active on the Internet, you can have a lot of influence, but no control.

By that I mean you can influence what people think about you, but really have no control over it.

In general in life you will be much happier not worrying about things you can't control.

You can't control the impulse people will have on the Internet to Google your name and see what they find.

You can influence, however, what they will see on the first page of Google for your name.

Here are three key steps to take to manifest that influence:

  1. Buy the .com and .net versions of your own name (complete with middle initial). re-directs to my "about page" (Shocking Bio) on this blog.
  2. I use when I buy domain names. With a coupon code the domains costs a little over $9 (US) each. offers (as do most domain registrars) a free re-direct service. So I just pointed to the url of my about page.

  3. Use your full name when making blog comments.

    In the "name" slot enter your full name when you make a blog comment. Vary between including your middle intial and just using first and last name.

    In the "website" slot put the url of your name if you have developed an appropriate page on that domain

    In some cases you may want to enter the url of your "about" page.

    You may want to re-direct in some cases, so it is wise to buy both the .com and .net versions of your name.

    As the number of comments grows on the Internet, your selected pages will rise in the search engine rankings and get to the first page of Google for your own name.

    With some bookmarking and pinging of the comment pages (after approval) you should soon see your selected pages ranking #1 in the search engines.

    To clarify things, you should bookmark your "about" page or the domain page you develop for your name url, also.

    Avoid using this technique on blogs using CommentLuv or KeywordLuv.

  4. Multiple Bios On "About" Pages

  5. Use internal linking HTML Code For Your Bio

    If you are active on a site with multiple contributors (with multiple bios on the about page), then you should code the page so you can use an url that will take people precisely to your bio on the page.

    Use this tutorial for how to put an anchor link on any page. Look for "A named anchor inside an HTML document:"

    HTML Totorial

    Then, use that special url in the "website" slot when you make blog comments.

Unusual Directory And Create
A Uniquely Valuable Backlink

This powerful link popularity resource is a directory of social network profile pages.

As far as I know it’s the only one of its kind.

If you do a search for your own name

on Google. you may be surprised to find that one of your social network profile pages may rank higher than your own blog/Web site pages.

Naturally, your profile pages should have backlinks to your blogs, Web sites, and lead capture pages, etc.

Directory Of Social Network Profile Pages

Just a thought about profile page backlinks in general:

Even if you can’t be active in every social networking site you join, you should at least establish a profile page.

Join at least 50 social networking sites and create 50 pages with backlinks to all your most important blogs and Web sites.

Duplicate pages are OK.

Then, heavily promote the links to your profile pages, which should in turn promote your Blog/Web site/Lead Capture Page, which should in turn. . . .(well, you get the idea).

Here’s one of my social network profile pages:
