Online Reputation Management Tips
- Don’t Click. If you come across a negative post that impacts your online reputation: dont click. I know, its tempting, but don’t do it. If you open the negative blog post or comment, you are only making it more popular and giving it more credibility.
- Don’t Comment. Also tempting, but don’t make follow-up comments. You may feel its important or even necessary to respond to a posting but that often fans the flames. It also just makes the original post even more popular.
- Do Try and Remove Negative Posts. Its rare, frankly, but it is possible to remove SOME posts if they violate copyrights or if its a deadlink.
- Do Add Positive Comments. This is the main solution: just add more good things about you. How? That can be complicated and time consuming, but just create good things about you and your business.
