Chriss, O. J. (2015, November 3). Report Card. In Brand Yourself. Retrieved November 3, 2015, from http://brandyourself.com/reportcard
For this assignment we were told to create an account for the website BrandYourself. Once we selected that we wanted to create an account, we were instructed to enter in our name for the website to search for all of the internet results that contain our name. I then looked through all of the search results and identified whether they were positive results that I want people to know about, negative results that I don’t want people to know about, or not about me at all. I am then given my “report card” which is the image that I have provided above. The grade is found by calculating all of the results that the website was able to find that used my name, Olivia Chriss.
The second part of this assignment was to complete at least three of the recommendations the site gives to change our rankings. The recommendations that I followed to increase my ranking included adding my location on my Facebook page, adding my Brand Yourself account as a way to contact me from my LinkedIn page, and I added a picture of myself to my LinkedIn profile so that those looking for me know that it is my account.
Doing all three of these things, and a few more, I have boosted the number of points each of my accounts has and hopefully this will make them some of the top results when someone is looking for me through Google. I can’t wait to see how my grade changes over the next few weeks.
The last part of this assignment was to comment on two of our classmates Brand Yourself posts. The two links that I have provided below are for their websites. Check them out!
