NOTE: How to remove "Did You Mean:" from Google Search? does not answer this question. The suggested fixes in this question is to set up FB, IG, and other social media pages. We have had these for months. We have 576 Instagram followers, 293 followers on Facebook, 17,425 views on Vimeo, Youtube, Pinterest and LinkedIn presence. Here is the response in a YouTube search:

Let's be clear. If you search for my company name and product name YT changes the spelling to something that doesn't exist and suggests a video with no matching result terms (using either spelling) disparaging OTHER luxury handbags, while leaving the viewer with the impression it is referring to our handbags.

Google

When a user searches for our business, Aslaen Vaugn, Google changes the spelling to Aslan Vaughn and displays these results:

enter image description here

If you misspell part of the name (aslan vaugn or aslaen vaughn), it shows my company at the top of the results. For the first few months it just seemed like it was taking some time to percolate, but over 7 months we have had 17,500 unique visitors and 90 backlinks.

The only results for Aslan Vaugn is the birth announcement of the second child of a musician in New Jersey. It is a Facebook post and has 14 likes. Google is favoring a spelling that has only two results with 14+ views over my company with dozens of results and tens of thousands of views.

How is this possible? An FB post with 14 likes is that much more popular than a business with 17,500 unique visitors and 40,000 page views (despite the Google obfuscation)? Do I have an enemy at Google? On other search engines my company covers the first few pages in results. Through Google, you cannot find our company no matter how many pages in you go. Unless you search for the term in quotes, "aslaen vaugn". In which case we cover the first few pages here like in the other search engines:

    The other question is the same regardless of whether the answers are great. If you need to call attention to it to get better answers, I'd recommend creating a bounty for it. – Stephen Ostermiller Jul 29 '20 at 23:14

    Your first question is in the re-open queue so that our users can decide if it deserves to be reopened. I've recused myself from the process since your edit doesn't differentiate the question from the original IMO and I'm the one who closed the question. It is spammy to ask the same question a second time to try to get around a closed question, so please don't do that. – Stephen Ostermiller Jul 29 '20 at 23:16

    There have been some (imo) thorough and high-quality answers on your question already - especially ICap's answer - with some discussion clarifying things in comments. I can see that you haven't fully implemented all of ICap's recommendations, especially linking social media from the website's footer which is low hanging fruit. What part of your question, exactly, remains unresolved? – Maximillian Laumeister Jul 30 '20 at 4:29

    @Maximillian Laumeister if you can re-open the question I can answer with my solution: I changed the home page title from "Aslaen Vaugn" to "Aslaen Vaugn - Aslan Vaughn". I also changed the alt text of the logos (also the H1 tag) from "Aslaen Vaugn" to "Aslan Vaughn". It took about 12 hours and is now the first result in Google searches. – orbitingeden Jul 31 '20 at 10:17

    @orbitingeden Glad you were able to find some success! Technically it may be a dupe, but I added a re-open vote anyways since your Q&A is so much higher quality than the one it was closed as a dupe of. – Maximillian Laumeister Jul 31 '20 at 19:13
