A couple of weeks back, the New York Post took a look at online reputation management and how it can help individuals that have a less than stellar Google reputation.
I had the chance to share some thoughts with Brian Moore. Some of my quotes include:
“You can’t make a negative Web page disappear off the Web unless you own it yourself,” says Andy Beal, a reputation management consultant and co-author of the new book “Radically Transparent: Monitoring and Managing Reputations Online.” “The best you can hope for is to push it down in the Google results.”
“Some things will never get pushed down – if you have an SEC report or a criminal record or a report on rippedoff.com,” says Beal.
“We live in a radically transparent world,” says Beal. “At the end of the day, your best bet is to maintain a really good character.”
