Glen Woodfin is an expert in online reputation management, where he clears the first few pages of a Google search of the negative for corporations or individuals.
Originally, Glen was focused on the broad category of SEO, but after talking with New York Times bestselling author, Doug Wead, he decided to become an online reputation manager as a niche.
Later, Wead wrote a story about Woodfin’s talents as a reputation expert in his NewsMax column entitled: “Online Reputation Management Guru Explains How,” http://www.newsmax.com/DougWead/onlinereputationmangementorm/2010/09/07/id/369344.
Knowing that Doug Wead had been a presidential advisor to a president, he listened to the advice.
Wead encouraged Woodfin to specialize in a niche and said that he should look at his services like they did in the White House and train a team to help when it came to big projects, to leverage himself.
He is currently promoting custom made affordable websites at AcapulcoWebDesign.com and getting them to the top of the search engines.
Mr. Woodfin is speaker at corporate events providing search engine optimization strategies for the companies as well as their affiliates. He was contacted by Godaddy.com to make a proposal to speak to their sales and customer support staff to talk about the power of select domain name extensions and how they affect seo ranking with the Google algorithm.

In addition to working with corporations, he enjoys helping small local businesses reach the number one position for their primary keywords in a search. For small businesses that are fearful of spending resources on a service they don’t understand, he puts them on affordable plans where they can test the waters. He says, “Once they see the results, they get more aggressive with seo because my service pays for itself with new business. It gives me great satisfaction beyond the money because I’ve always admired entrepreneurs and small businesses which are the lifeblood of the American spirit and economy.”

From his home office in 2010, Glen Woodfin took one client’s site to the top of the search engines for phrases involving the Chelsea Clinton wedding. Single handedly he added 75,267 views a day with a brand new site while beating the New York Times, the Washington Post, People Magazine, the Huffington Post and the Wall Street Journal in search engine ranking. He topped every site and media outlet for the keyword phrases associated with Chelsea Clinton.
Do a search for: ‘Chelsea Clinton Wedding’ and you should see http://www.chelseaclintonweddingwatch.com/ at the near top of the Google search (now on page 2), beating every media news site in the world. In fact, the site was ranked number 1 on page one of a Google search the weekend of the wedding in a search for her name: Chelsea Clinton. When you are up against every gossip site and media outlet in the world and you’re just one guy working from your home with your deaf Dalmatian sleeping by your feet, it’s a marvellous feeling as one might imagine. Glen says, “One of the things that attracted me to search engine optimization was that one person with skills could compete and beat every billion dollar corporation…seo is the ultimate Archimedes Lever.” The content on the site was put up about a month before the wedding, so that added even more of a challenge going up against well established authority sites with millions of views. Any SEO consultant will tell you, it’s hard to beat major media sites in ranking.

Lester Holt of NBC Mentioned the Website Woodfin Was Promoting on the Today Show at the 2 Minute and 27 Second Mark
It’s always desirable to fan the flame using SEO principles until your site goes viral and crosses over to major media networks, this is what happened with the Chelsea Clinton Wedding Watch site. Thanks to Doug Wead and Lester Holt for mentioning this site on the Today Show. It puts one’s site traffic and search engine ranking on steroids.
Woodfin embraces custom self-hosted WordPress blogs as one of the pillars of building a solid web presence for all his clients large and small. He favors what he calls a hybrid where one creates several static pages that have the appearance of the best of a custom html website while featuring one link in the navigation bar leading to a page featuring the blog. He believes this platform is one of the best ways to interact with their audience.
Woodfin has been living on his charming farm in the Carolinas with his pets and in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He enjoys clearing his head by riding his motorcycle in the Smokey mountains, bicycling and having coffee with friends. For adventure, he bicycled across America from coast to coast writing for newspapers along the way.
