PHOENIX, Ariz., Aug. 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Phoenix reputation management firm Reputation Maxx shares that as the Internet and the use of social media becomes more prominent, it is more and more important to make sure that both businesses and individuals maintain a positive online presence. However, many people do not even know what an online landscape is. Both businesses and individuals have a reputation online, whether they like it or not. This landscape can be found when searching for a brand or person's name on popular search engines such as Google, Yahoo or Bing. After searching this, the next question is to determine whether or not the client is happy with the way that they look online. These are the top things to look for in order to assess anyone's reputation online.
1. Social media accounts: One of the most common ways that businesses and individuals are seen online is through their social media profiles. When searching for a person's name online, chances are that the majority of the content will be from popular sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more. These accounts can be a great source of information and promotional for an individual or company. However, when assessing these accounts, it is important to assess the quality of the content that is posted on these sites. If there are negative posts and questionable images, this will certainly hurt their online image, share the reputation experts at Phoenix reputation management firm Reputation Maxx.
2. Relevant results: When searching a company's name, not all of the results will be applicable. Some of them may have the same keyword and are positive results but do not pertain to the actual business or individual in question. If they are not relevant, this could be as harmful as having negative content online.
3. Ask a friend: In order to make sure a person is assessing their online reputation properly, be sure to ask a friend or someone who is not biased to take a look at the search results for the keyword in question. They will be able to determine whether or not there are any red flags that may come up in their opinion.
It is absolutely vital that people look up their online reputation on a regular basis and determine how they look to prospective clients, consumers and employers. Whether it is a large Fortune 500 company or a young individual just entering the job market, everybody needs to know how they look online.
