Same Name But Bad Search Results. What to Do.

By Brianne Schaer on 9/16/19 6:34 PM

Are you the only person in the world with your name? Probably not. We work too hard maintaining our reputations to fall victim to someone else’s mistakes. This can happen if someone with the same name as you or your company is involved in a scandal or some type of negative publicity. The reputational downfall associated with their name can affect you since you share the same name and, as a result, the same search results.

Sometimes the actions that other people take can affect your own reputation in a very serious way.

  • What do you do when someone with the same name as you is involved in a scandal?
  • How do you distinguish yourself if you have a very common name?
  • What tools can you use to monitor what is being said about your name online?
