We all know reputation management is important, but it still remains something most of us think about only as an afterthought.

It is some Thursday afternoon and you head over to Google to search for your name or brand and the next thing you know someone is saying some pretty nasty things about you, and ranking right there for everyone to see.

Even if it is not something negative, it could just be that some affiliate site is out ranking you for your own brand or name without your permission.
