    • Social media profiles will not help in online reputation management unless they are indexed by search engines.
      • Add your social media profiles to your “About Us” page ( example ).
      • Add your social media profiles within your blog or blog posts.
      • Adding contacts in social media sites will help with indexing.
      • Link to social media profiles in online press releases.
      • Buy paid links and point them to your social media profiles.
    • The main idea is to link to them from pages that are already indexed!
