Hi Meera,

A reputation manager is mainly involved in helping the individual or corporate maintain their reputation online.
They act like a PR for them.

Its as simple as reading a review online, especially through search engines like GOOGLE or YAHOO.

They not only contain information that the person or corporate wishes to display, but someone who writes a review too and not all reviews are worth the person. There these reviews can be detrimental.

Here is where the online reputation manager steps in.
He design the website in a manner whereby either they block such messages or reviews and in-case it has been posted then they are the ones who erase it completely from the search engine pages so that they do not reappear anytime further.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck.........

Dear Aspirant,

Very good question and a different career field less travelled and known to many.

Basically, online reputation management is the process of controlling what shows up when someone Googles your name.

Reputation management is the influencing and/or control of an individual's or business's reputation. Originally a public relations term, the advancement of internet and social media use, along with reputation management companies, have made it primarily an issue of search results. Parts of reputation management are often associated with ethical grey areas, such as astroturfing review sites, censoring negative complaints or using SEO tactics to game the system and influence results. There are also ethical forms of reputation management, which are frequently used, such as responding to customer complaints, asking sites to take down incorrect information and using online feedback to influence product development.

Best wishes
