My Social Media Expert is More #ugly Than Your Social Media Expert

Having a Google Alert for your name is nothing to be ashamed of.

Nor is it something you need to lie about any more. (Heck, if Survivor’s Jeff Probst can come clean, anyone can.)

Similar to the way I recommend in the TWEET model that you use Twitter to search for yourself, having a Google Alert for your own name is a smart way to see what slander or joy is being spread about you. Then, you can take matters into your own hands and either “mean tweet” the offender a la The Real Housewives of New York’s Kelly Bensimon or send them, with joy, free steak.

Today, I veered on the side of mean tweeting.

Then, however, I realized that the culprit of the slander was my own ugliness. Alas, mean tweeting myself seemed of little value. This is what my Google Alert pointed out — out an old video of me from BlogWorld 2010 with a hideous, frozen-in-time screenshot I want to vomit all over.

Honestly, objectively, and (I say this completely without personal bias) it looks like I’m chewing cud.

Yes, cud. Like a cow.

If I’m lucky (and, I usually am) the SEO ranking on this video is likely through the roof because of some black-hat (black-cloak? dark-cloak?) scheme I will never understand, and as a result every image search for my name from now until infinity will produce this result.

Moo.

  1. A excellent businessman is just not measured by how great his merchandise is but
    in the way they make them look superior on the customers.

    Herbalife is one from the few firms that continually keep upgrading its products as
    per the latest norms.

    The next step is within filtering the interested ones from the uninterested ones and recruiting the interested ones to
    your business. What ever you opt for to accomplish you desire to generally be aware from
    your diet information within the meal items you eat.
