Answers to frequently asked questions by Internet defamation clients just like you:

What is Online Reputation Protection Important?Why online reputation protection and management is important: Internet defamation is such a hard hitting form of slander simply because its effects are so far reaching—anyone who has access to a computer and the internet could stumble upon the defamatory comments(s) made against you and, according to statistics, 78% of the North American population is now connected. Combined with the fact that more people are taking product and service reviews into consideration prior to making purchases or hiring service providers—evident by the growing number of review sites cropping up on the internet—gives you more than justified reason to maintain your good name. Whether online defamation occurs against your business or yourself personally, taking steps to remove or deflect the online slander are time and resources well spent.
