To Control Your Name

I live online.

I believe the world is moving away from privacy, and any *real* attempt to hide yourself from the world will be futile to some degree. With all the forms, public documents, social media sites, etc, it’s hard to expect anything to remain private. I respect those of you that try to, but I’ve long given up on trying to hide.

Instead, I try to control my image as much as humanly possible. I don’t want people to confuse me with other people. I don’t want people to think I am something I’m not. I want to know they only see me for ME, not for what other people might post that could be mistaken as me…

That said, I do everything I can to control what people see when they search for me. Google’s search results are obviously not 100% in my control, but they can be manipulated using Search Engine Optimization tricks :-). That said, I’ve long dominated the top 10 results when you search for “Justin Gehring”. However lately, some things have been creeping into the top 10, that aren’t me…

That said, I’m going to start by going after getting the 2 facebook results off, and replaced with my own facebook page. This post, is kind of the first step in that process… I’ll try to update on how it goes…

If you want to help at all, and you have a website… Simply talking about me and linking to my facebook when you do helps… Or linking to my blog, or linking to my landing page (justingehring.com). In any case, it’s mostly just a game for me, but a fun game non the less.
