Do you mean sites where Google is willing to rank a profile highly (for a personal or business name), thereby making it harder for some negative comment to float to the top of the rankings? If so, then yes - those are often well-ranked sites.
I also find that guest writing with a byline on a quality site, or even better, being interviewed on another site, can also rank quite well. The key seems to be good outreach.
