Google

We’ve all googled ourselves, colleagues, clients, candidates and various people that send us random emails. How can you control what others find on the first page of Google for your name? There are a few tips and tricks but unless you’re an SEO expert, you’re likely to be lost in the noise. Only 2% of individuals actually own the first page of their Google results.
