If you have been running a company or your own personal brand and have an online presence, you should find out about your online reputation too. It is essential to know what is going on around the web that directly or indirectly discusses you or about your business. Though there are many Online Reputation Management Services India agencies, which will do the needful for you, you must know the basics of it.
Simply Google your name and the business you run separately or together, and then checking the first page results carefully will be a good start. Look for negative information, on the first, then second and finally the third page. This simple search on Google or any other search engine will give you a rough idea of how your reputation is on the web. But you cannot rely on it completely. Because Google searches do not show social media results in most of the time, other than the links to profiles. As PPC Management Company India also follows the online reputation of its client, it also does the following for efficient monitoring of the web.
