What Is Online Reputation Management?


What is Online Reputation Management?

Online Reputation Management is protecting companies and individuals from negative content about them online. Although SEO focusses on generating traffic and business from generic keywords, it does not take into account the user journey. Most visitors to a web page will check out the website and business name itself to see whether they are reputable enough and have enough good reviews to trust them. Even if they find the product or service they want, even if they buy it, they will still cancel and go elsewhere if they don't like what they see.
