When I first start working with small businesses, they can be surprised at the information that is out on the internet both about their businesses and themselves. Yesterday, Google put out a nice overview of how they recommend managing internet reputations.

- Try to remove the offending information off the original website and then expedite the removal from Google’s indexing (Google URL removal tool).
- Proactively Publish Favorable information on your Google profile
The post is mostly obvious stuff, but it is interesting that they point to your Google Profile which each business and owner should develop.
