Reputation Management: Focused on eliminating negative search results from Google’s TOP-30. Ensured the brand was discussed and presented in a positive or neutral manner to the audience.
Since the client has not provided any technical tasks for Crowd + SERM campaigns we had to come up with the strategy. We ran a complex niche and competitors analysis, brand analysis with identifying negative or neutral Google search results in various GEO’s. Based on the research and analysis we came up with the linkbuilding strategy that consist of: a) GEO’s b) Volume and type of links c) Resources parameters and criteria d) Technical assignments for articles e) Budgets f) Projection

Content Strategy: Created high-quality, engaging content to overshadow negative information and improve the brand’s online reputation. Regularly published blog posts, press releases, and case studies showcasing Ajax’s innovative solutions and success stories.
