Many individuals are interested in the world of Internet reputation management, but they have no idea whether they should pay attention to the things being said about them or their company online. They have seen negative comments, but do not know what the right course of action is.

If a negative review or comment is hurting your ability to function or in any way limiting your business opportunities, then it is worth tackling. The long term damage of these sorts of comments cannot be underestimated on the Internet. As everything else on the Internet, negative comments spread like wildfire.

If your company has been reviewed or commented on negatively, though, do not reply to it. This will only serve to boost the Google ranking of that page. This means that you secure that page’s important to Google and make it more difficult to knock out of the top ten or twenty links.
