Why Background Checks Are Important

The Importance of An Online Reputation 

Odds are you have Googled a company, business, or individual’s name before. What type of information do you look for? 

When someone uses Google, they are looking for information – who, what, where, when and why

When specifically looking at businesses, Google is home to all the information needed to determine whether or not a business is worth investing in based on customer reviews, accuracy of information, and trustworthiness as a whole.

What is an Online Reputation Risk Assessment?

Some might ask what’s even involved in an online reputation risk assessment? The answer is, research. Your online reputation involves every bit of information about you, your company, or your brand as a whole.

Social media profiles, links, images, videos, articles, blogs – all that content that is hidden deep within Google’s pages is considered. 

How Do I Evaluate My Reputation? 

Type your name into Google. Google is the world’s number one search engine. If someone has a question about who you are, what you are involved in or where you’ve been, Google most likely has the answer, and it’s the most popular one. 

What does your first page of Google search results say about you? If your Google search results are filled with positive links and supporting articles and content, you most likely have a very positive online reputation. 

However, it just takes one tiny mishap to completely turn a good reputation into a bad one. Word travels fast online, and negative articles can often multiply quickly and wreak havoc on your search engine result pages. 

Positive Content vs. Negative Content 

To the untrained eye, someone’s Google results may just seem like a page of links and sources. However, with a deep dive into those sources, information can be sourced to offer an in-depth analysis of the individual’s Google search results

Examples of positive online content: 

  • Positive reviews 
  • Positive news highlights
  • Scholarly articles 
  • Professional websites 
  • Professional social profiles
