The biggest booming business that you have never heard of is known as reputation management. This is when, in our case, a politician has something about themselves posted online and needs this information buried or removed. All too often this information that exists is false, but is made available on the internet and is made to look like it is factual. These damaging websites exist all over the web and there is a constant battle between reputation management companies and those trying to do harm to the individual. This can be anyone from an actual competitor in a race, or individuals that do not want to see that politician win the vote.
If you are looking for information about someone online, you will often go to a major search engine and type in their name. This will give you a list of results of websites that have information on them related to the politician, and they are usually actual resources. On occasion, websites with malicious intent can actually rank for this and be mistaken for proven information. This could damage the reputation of the person while the perpetrator remains highly anonymous. This is where the battle starts, between companies trying to remove that content and its producers. It is hard to track them down and have them remove it, so you will often have to work with the actual web hosting companies or domain name providers.
With social media these resources can go viral in no time, so making sure they are swiftly removed is of utmost importance. A small web design and SEO company from Tampa at this website has experience working with politicians during their campaigns. It is amazing to see the amount of misinformation that is available out there, and how quickly it gets picked up on news or social sites. It is a daily task to make sure that there is no new content out there which could harm the individual. And if there is steps need to be taken immediately to remove it.
The only problem with this is how does one determine what is truth and what is fiction? This is where the moral concern lies for any company dealing with this, so they must be careful of their actions.
