With the increasing competition among companies today, the kind of image that an organization projects can be instrumental in determining its level of success in the market. As most major as well as minor companies these days have an online presence for promotional or business purposes, customers tend to receive the maximum amount of information about corporations/ individuals from the internet itself. There can be a large amount of data in relation to a particular organization on the world wide web that may show up in search engine results. This data may be either negative or positive. Generally positive data consists of information that has been created and is being circulated by the company itself or its customers or associates while negative data may be present in the form of negative feedback published on certain online forums. Negative results about a company may also show up in case a competitor chooses to circulate such information about you in order to tarnish your brand.
The negative results that are received by conducting a search on a popular search engine like Google or Yahoo cannot be ignored due to the wide repercussions that it may have on your sales as well as your image. For this purpose, there are certain companies that offer their specialized services in online reputation management. Online Reputation Management popularly known as ORM deals with effectively rooting out negative feedback and comments about your company by replacing it with positive ones. This can be done by developing SEO based content that starts to show up in the top ten results of a search. This in turn helps reduce the rank of any negative data that may earlier be showing up when keywords related to your organization are entered in the search box. During the process various tools are to be used in order to weed out negative feedbacks from the top search results.
