I mean how often does someone get categorized a genius? Is there a super genius rank?
Some good strategies are
* Have big hair and a wild facial expression.
* Do at least one thing in your lifetime that is generally agreed to be useful.
* File lots of patents that nobody can understand (filing patents is easier than getting papers published, because patents doesn't have to make any sense).
* Make sure your name can be linked to some conspiracy theories.

Unfortunately, the full genius effect doesn't usually kick in till a few years after you are dead
