Brand Reputation Management Online

Online Defamation

In the business world, image means everything.  Your image is what makes your company seem credible and trustworthy.  Without these elements, your business can only become mildly successful, if that.  A good image and reputation is what takes businesses to the next level.  The most influential factor that can make or break a company is their internet presence.  The characterization of your company online is far more important than any other source.  As a business owner, you need to stay on top of what consumers are reading about your company.

Delete Ripoff Report Comments

There is little you can do to prevent someone from running a smear campaign against your business.  The internet is the easiest place for someone to do this.  The internet offers a level of anonymity that many consumers enjoy because it gives them the opportunity to say what they really feel without fear.  It also gives disgruntled customers, ex-employees and other businesses the opportunity to write falsehoods about your company.  These kinds of statements are defamatory and allow you to pursue legal actions.

Bing Health Search and SEO for Medical Industry

In the effort to live up to its promise and to combat the general lack of adequate filter in search engine results, Bing has selected content from only nine trusted medical sources for queries having to do with health.

Although that number seems incredibly limited, it’s easy to see why Bing has gone this route. There are literally millions of websites devoted to answering questions and offering advice related to medical conditions. A Google result for the generic phrase ‘back pain’ yields 143 million results. It isn’t easy for user to distinguish between rubbish and sound medical advice, particularly if they aren’t working in some sort of medical field.
