    Purpose: permanently push down mugshot photos (4 of the same image from different mugshot sites) of gf from page one of results.

    Current Method:
    1. Created wordpress and blogger blog to upload original images to.
    a. using keyword (first & last name) in file name (first-last.jpg), post title, description, caption, alt text, tags
    b. image sizes larger than 320px, using standard image dimension formats (16:9, 16:10, 4:1, 4:3)
    c. sharing each post to facebook, twitter, linkedin

    NOTE: After one month of this, these images stay near the top pretty consistently, sometimes even overtaking the mugshot photos for a day or two before getting overtaken again.

    2. Posting original images on high traffic forums
    a. make thread topic that sparks debate among forum ("Are rear wheel drive cars relevant anymore?") OR join an existing high viewed thread
    b. using keyword in image file name, alt text (if allowed)
    c. occasional reply to keep topic going along with new image added following the same rules as mentioned in (a.)


    NOTE: 3 weeks testing this, results are very mixed...I can get results on the 1st page, but never higher than the 8th position. Weird thing is that image position DOES NOT correlate with the number of total views of the thread...I've had two images in 10th and 11th spots for weeks now on threads closed after only 10 posts with less than 200 views, while images from another thread with 109 posts and 3500+ views and counting have never risen above the 25th position.

    I have also recently purchased a dedicated domain and hosting for the keyword, and have a basic profile page built, but am not sure the best way to utilize it...good news is its already listed as #3 in regular google search results when searching first and last name.

    It would be greatly appreciated if some seasoned SEO pros could take a look at my current blueprint and offer any input (tweaks, tips, additional things to implement, etc) that will help improve my success with this. It literally feels like a daily battle against these mugshot site punks vying for dominance and it's taking its toll...police had to show up to stop gf's suicide attempt last week trying to down all her xanax. She's been job hunting for the past few months and since this happened shes had ZERO responses for any job apps. Really grasping at straws at this point...so any advice would help!
