Dear fellow translators,
I am currently writing my M.A. thesis on the value of online reputation for freelance translators. I’d be extremely grateful if you could spare some 15 minutes and complete it. The survey includes a fast and easy test to measure your online presence. In return for completing the survey, I’ll send you a copy of my thesis which will include the survey results summary and some practical recommendations for strengthening your online presence and getting new business!
The survey is available at this address:

http://freeonlinesurveys.com/s.asp?sid=p8kv7y8olib564z395275

Please note: the survey is intended for academic purposes only. It is anonymous and the data will not be shared with any third parties.
Thank you for your participation.
Karol Waniek

Very interesting Jan 5, 2014

I'd never done the exercise of googling myself and then trying to quantify how relevant the results are. That's a very interesting idea, thank you for sharing it!

Thank you for your responses! Jan 5, 2014

I already have close to a hundred! For those of you who are interested in assessing your online reputation in a slightly more sophisticated way than I do it, I recommend this website:
http://www.onlineidcalculator.com/index.php
It basically does a more detailed analysis of your online reputation than in my questionnaire. Have fun!

Brrrrrr Jan 5, 2014

This is where I find out why I get added on Facebook by what looks like Ku Klux Klan members: there's a woman in Texas with the same name as me!

And what's really weird is that she's friends with a couple who have exactly the same first and last names as a couple I'm friends with, yet my friends live in London and hers in Kentucky.

I tried it, and got absolutely top score on both dimensions. Does this makes me the e-king of anything?

Most amazing is that I never spent one cent on SEO. I built my own web site with WebSiteX5, and uploaded it to a fairly unknown (though paid) host in Brazil, so nobody is doing SEO for me.

BTW, yes, I did respond to your survey.

José, it just means you have a name that is unique and that you have not done anything stupid on the Internet and signed it with your name:) Plus the tool doesn not have absolute knowledge about everybody, it is just a simple instrument that should make one think about their online presence.
And thanks for doing the survey!

Did it :) Jan 5, 2014

I did it, but I don't know how relevant my case may be for your thesis... Unfortunately, the 'famous' Domenico Trimboli is not me, but a well-known Italian criminal.

All of the results on Google (actually, 28 out of 30 in the first 3 pages) are about him, mostly newspaper articles written when he was arrested. As they are not local newspapers, but national ones, I can't see any way for me to get over this obstacle.

Good luck with your thesisicon_smile.gif
