Software Tools for Managing Your Online Reputation

Posted by on Friday, July 10th, 2009

Reputation Monitor Tool - Maintain and build your reputation by monitoring what people are saying about you online.

I just got tipped off about a new reputation management helper developed by Strategic Profits.

What it does is creates an OPML file containing search feeds for popular online services based on your search terms.

This is pretty cool because setting up the feeds individually is a bit of a chore, especially if you have plenty of phrases to monitor. And monitor them you should if you care about your online reputation.

Feeds featured are your pretty standard fare:

  • Google News
  • Google Blog Search
  • Technorati
  • Furl
  • Flickr
  • Yahoo!

… along with some I didn’t recognize. Sneakily they also add in Rich Schefren’s own blog – naughty! Nice way to pad his subscriber count, heh :)

If you really want to monitor your reputation though you also need in addition at least Google Alerts, and a good Twitter search. In fact you need to be involved in the social media in an active and engaged way.

You can try the Reputation Monitor tool here.

Any more tips for how you might monitor your online reputation? Please share in the comments and I will highlight the best comments with links.
