- Improve your rankings on your websites, blogs, podcasts, social media sites, etc.

Brandyourself offers multiple service levels from Free, Premium and a number of advanced levels. Costs range from Free to about $10/month premium, to high service levels up to $500/month). These advanced levels use their consultants and specialists to help optimize websites and build websites.
The overall service is EXCELLENT (practical, easy to use, good customer support) — first it surfs Google to see where your websites already rank. You can then add links and webpages that may or may not include your name, such as a business, blog, podcast, etc.
Brandyourself helps you optimize these sites with recommendations to do things like include your name in pages, posts, etc. Provides DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS on how to do this, and verifies them for you. Over time, the website continues to track your Google results and continue to optimize them.
CUSTOMER SERVICE — I make it a point to call every new web service or online vendor I use to see how they do customer service. I’ve called three (3) times so far. People were very helpful, understood my issues and were extremely pleasant.
