Google’s New Online Reputation Management Tool Is Out Now


Have you ever found information about you on the net that you don’t want searchers to find?

Even if you don’t produce any content online, it’s very likely you’re going to have both fans and critics. Your online reputation, or “online identity is determined not only by what you post, but also by what others post about you — whether a mention in a blog post, a photo tag or a reply to a public status update,” Google says.

The super search engine just introduced a new online reputation management tool that helps users manage search results for their name, thus allowing them to neutralize the effect of negative content. It is called “Me on the Web”, located directly after account information on the Google dashboard.

The tool encourages users to keep up to date on (negative) sentiment by setting up search alerts for data points like your name and email address.

Through links to resources in How To Manage Your Online Identity and How To Remove Unwanted Content, the tool enables users to repair their reputation online as and when they find negative search engine results.
