Helpful Short Cuts for Online Reputation Management:

  • Create your own search engine at Rollyo.com. This is a great way to track sites that do not offer RSS feeds for keywords such as Consumerist.com, PlanetFeedback.com, ComplaintCenter.com, Complaints.com, Better Business Bureau and RipOffReport.com.
  • Use Keotag.com to search for tagged blog posts across multiple blog search engines.
  • Get a feel for stories that are creating “buzz” in the blogosphere via sites like Memeorandum.com and Blogniscient.com.
  • Acquire an overview of blogger opinions (both negative and positive) via Opinmind.com, a blog search engine that allows you to type any subject into its search box.
  • Learn about a specific blog’s traffic, credibility and popularity via PubSub.com, Alexa.com and IceRocket.com.
  • Bloginfluence.net and Socialmeter.com show you the popularity and audience-reach for any entered blog URL. Use it to get a snapshot of the credibility of any blogger discussing your company.
  • Research backgrounds of bloggers, owners of forums and web site editors via domain name search tools such as DomainTools.com and BetterWhois.com.
  • Get creative with the classified search engine, Oodle.com. Search for job listings in your industry, then subscribe to the RSS feed. You’ll get an early alert of all the job listings your competitors’ post. Now you’ll know which areas of their business are expanding or get clues about potential new products, based upon who they are hiring.
  • Not sure what keywords to track? Start entering your main “buzz” word at Google Suggest and see what’s most commonly searched. Or try Google Trends for the latest search query trends.
