Remove My Mugshot was created after a good friend of mine, an Online Reputation Manager buried his own mugshot, and received free deletion for all but one mugshot. He did it using the same techniques as large corporations. For example BP hired consultants to remove and bury unfavorable information on the internet related to their 2010 Oil Spill in the Gulf. GoDaddy used a PR firm when the Founder took selfies hunting an elephant in Africa. Verizon has done so regarding information sharing with spy agencies.
I approached him on how to remove my mugshot form a DUI I had 7 years ago in college. It suddenly appeared online out of nowhere. It was brought to my attention by a close co-worker who found it when she Googled my name. It was pretty embarrassing and I needed it to be gone yesterday. The advice given to me was to stop clicking on the mugshots I found online. Clicking on a result tells Google that you like that website, so never click on something you don’t want to appear. After a series of back and forth emails and a few excel sheets my mugshots were off the first page in a few weeks then finally fell to the fourth page over a period in 2 months. So together we complied a blueprint for anyone to follow to remove their mugshot from the first page. Second we found some simple industry tools to automate and speed up the process. We made videos explaining how to do it. We provide additional resources that give you everything you need for a Reputation Management Campaign of your own.
Our system is based upon years of search engine optimization and reputation management experience. Basically since the industries inception in 2005. It is a lot easier to remove a mugshot than you may realize. This also applies to any negative information on the internet. Our techniques will last over time as long as you follow the process we outline. You can engage in a personal reputation management campaign in order to bury or push down bad reviews, old talent show photos, local articles, mugshot removal, etc.
When you are controlling the content on the first page of Google you can engage employers, potential dates, and stalkers with the information you want to put forth. Like your own timeline in Google. The timeline everyone looks up and has access too. We even offer Reputation Monitoring
Spend time sculpting your search results with reputation management and control what people see about you. Chances are if you get a mugshot appearing on the first page of Google for your name you don’t need to remove it from the website to hide it. You just need to create better content on a series of more trusted websites that include your first and last name.
We only focus on Google since it is the largest search engine with about 70% of market share according to Comscore.
We only worry about the first page since 98% of searchers do not go past the first page when searching.
