Title: SEO/SEM Expert Reputation Management
Project ID: 498259

Category: Website Design / Website Marketing
Description:
SEO group is seeking an SEO experienced professional willing to telecommute and assist 2 seo/sem employees, working from home in Asia. They speak fluent English and are very efficient.

Our focus is exclusively reputation management. Individual will be responsible for providing direction and assisting them to more effectively repair our client’s online reputation issues.

We use only white hat techniques and currently create web, blog and social media sites, article and forum posting. We are looking for someone that has extensive experience, able to assist our employees with new proven techniques that will dramatically improve our current results in Google.

We are offering a full time/part time position. You must have a minimum of 3 years experience in reputation management.

Please, only qualified professionals apply for this position.

I’m not surprised. But this marriage of search engine optimisation (coming top of search lists on Google)  with coming first in a good way (none of that “XYZ Brand Sucks” or “Stay away from Blah Blah Company”at the top of the Google search page, please) is important. Now we start to see companies seriously fighting Company Karma. It’s no longer a ‘bad press day’ where a journalist picks on a company, for one tv show or a few days in the newspaper, now lining the budgie cage. This is the long tale of shame, and “unmanageable” social media spin. God Help Us All. heh.

I’m not surpised the job is in Asia. Japanese companies have had a C-level exec in charge of corporate social responsibility for a while now. Expect that to hit Australia any time … in the next 5 years anyway. Social Media +Agents for Change+Climate/Planet Earth Issues = Company Karma Scoreboard.
