The SEO, formally known as Detlev Johnson, who now chooses to live life as a woman (Disa Johnson) is scorn and very upset with me… still. And is now rallying all the ShoeMoney haters on Twitter (which are not hard to find the in the SEO industry).
He/She is demanding that I remove this post which ranks for Disa Johnson in Google.
So what’s the real beef here? Well, according to its “tweets”, it’s because my post ranks for Disa Johnson’s name and after many failed attempts she can’t seem to rank for my name or for ShoeMoney. Now Disa vows that.. well to put it in her words:
“I have way more energy to defend my good name than you have to sully it.”
I also pleaded with Disa to just give me a call so we could work this all out. But it’s clear… she only cares about being a “expert” on SEO and Reputation Management. Which… it looks like she is a total failure at (so far).
Disa did thank me for editing the original post:
But then she started going nuts and calling me names and what not when she saw that my post was starting to rank in Google…
Then she started this massive campaign on Twitter (among other mediums) to try to get me to delete my apology post.
Disa says she has enlisted link master, Eric Ward, to start building her links to her new site and improve her reputation. I am still stunned that Disa doesn’t truly understand how rankings work! Oh well, bringing in the Link Moses can’t hurt, right?
Now I know what lots of you are thinking… I am “falling” for her PR stunt. Fine – I will fall for it. I feel bad about the whole thing. Obviously switching your gender can be an easy thing and I am trying to move on. I hope Disa Johnson can move on also.
I will not be removing my apology post. If Disa and Heather want to take more legal action, that is their choice.
What Disa Johnson does not understand is that true reputation management doesn’t have crap to do with search engine results. I have built my reputation from meeting and working with people over the past years and as much as she tries, she can’t mess with my solid relationships just by trying to game Google (which I am sure she will continue to try).
I have never held back and tried to take the higher road on anything else that I can think of. I am sure we will see a wave of attacks on Twitter from Disa as I refuse to take down my apology post…. whatever…. I am moving on. I got shit to do.
P.S. Just before this post went to the front page on sphinn, the moderators deleted it… go figure.
