Google Launches New Social Reputation Tool

The signals are clear. Google has gone social. We’ve seen examples of this for a while now, especially in local search, where positive social feedback (citations, reviews, ratings, etc.) can help a business secure coveted positioning in Google Places. We’ve also seen additional clues from Google with their recent introduction of the “+1” feature¬†¬†(akin to the Facebook like button). Now with social media monitoring a business can keep tabs on their social reputation by setting up alerts and removing unwanted content. Reputation management is going to be a critical step for all businesses on the web moving forward.
