We Help Control What People See When They Search Your Name
Helping CEOs and Founders Influence What People See When They Search Their Name Is Personal For Me.
In 2013, I was 17 years old and just finishing starting my senior of high school. I had my whole future laid out, including top tier colleges, my future job as a lawyer, and even the exact age I would have kids. I was always told jobs and colleges would Google me when looking at my application, so I decided to look myself up and see what came up.
What I saw was my worst nightmare…
The first article was about someone with my exact same name, half way cross teh country, who was charged with a crime! The problem was that wasn’t me. Not only had I never been charged with the crime, but I had also never even been to the state it was about. It didn’t take much investigating for me to realize that the article wasn’t about me. It was about a different “Derrick Lawter”, somewhere halfway across the country, who had the same exact first and last name as me.
The Fact It Wasn’t Actually Me Didn’t Matter. Anyone Who Searched My Name Would Think It Was…
Immediately I began to feel myself sinking. How can I convince people this isn’t me? Will I ever get a job? Will this keep me out of college? Will I ever even get a date? Why me?
I called the newspaper who posted the article and explained my situation, asking for it to be taken down. The replied by telling me it was against their policy to take anything down. Unbelievable. After I was done feeling sorry for myself, I decided I only had one choice….
I had to learn how to dominate the Google presence of my name and push this article well off the front page. I needed a website and whatever else was required to reclaim the search results for my name. And it wasn’t going to be easy.
Now I Control Almost All The Results For My Name!
Search My Name “Derrick Lawter” And See The Results Yourself
8 years later, after searching my name you would need to scroll to find a Google result that wasn’t positive and about me. What was once my greatest weakness became my greatest business weapons, all from learning how to rank for my own name on Google and influence what people saw when they searched my name.

We will do bi-weekly maintenance, ensuring everything is intact and updated. Each month, we will send an analytic report for both SEO and website data. Additionally, we provide top notch support as needed by you or your team for revisions, fixes, or updates.
Why Do I Need A Personal Website?
Personal Websites Allow You To Play Both Offense and Defense
I was lucky to learn the importance of Google search results at a young age. However, most people still do not see or fully understand the harm having negative Google search results can cause for you and your business. Clients, friends, and potential connections are searching your name, and most people have no idea what they are reading about you or your business.
First, with a personal website, you control the content and information on your site, allowing you to influence what clients and people see when they search your name. When networking connections look you up, they can find your professional site that establishes authority. You can also provide links to your business and use it to generate leads, playing offense.
Second, you make it harder for negative reviews or articles to come up when your name is searched, playing defense. This is a crucial benefit, as usually entrepreneur’s do not start playing defense on Google until it is too late.
