Reputation defense is essentially the active part of reputation management, where you maintain your good name against attempts to smear it online. This can happen for any number of reasons: Difficulties in your personal life and/or business disagreements that are taken online.

The first step in online reputation defense is ongoing monitoring. It is very important to stay on top of what the the online community thinks about you at all times. This could range from somebody venting over a squabble on social media, a news article running about your business, a comment on a blog article or Facebook post. It is important to find each piece of information about you, and assess it on a few levels; how credible the source will appear to somebody outside the situation, where the statement is located, how high up it appears on search results. If it’s an isolated incident, it’s unlikely to make any waves and you can let it go. But if there’s a pattern emerging, whether among one person or multiple people, then you have to move to the next step, which would be responding effectively.

Effective Reputation Defense

Response can take a number of forms, but often the most effective is to counter the negative with the positive: to put positive news about yourself and your company online using search engine optimization, or SEO. SEO is key to any reputation defense online; it’s cheaper, faster, and more effective than any other method. In other words, when they go low, you go high.

Could you sue the sites or the person spoiling your reputation ? Yes, but that’s a process that can take a long time with little guarantee of success, and will most likely be expensive to boot. You can also ask the site to take down the content in question, but that’s up to each site individually, and it’s difficult to compel a website to remove content. So instead, you use certain techniques against the people trying to smear you. It’s fairly straightforward; if someone is searching for your name, most people only look at the first few links. And furthermore, almost no one goes to the second page of results. By building the true image of yourself online through blogging, social media work, press releases, and news coverage, and by working to ensure that’s simple to find you form a sort of reputation shield that helps keep smear campaigns off the first page of results. And by engaging in SEO about positive news about yourself, it allows you to drive slander off the first page and shut down smear campaigns before they start.
