Best sites to manage online reputations

These websites allow you to control and monitor your "online identity."

Claimid.com is a free service to help tailor your “online identity.” You can pool together personal information by “claiming” relevant content from the Internet, then share the resulting profile with others.

Google.com/profiles is a “personal branding tool” similar to ClaimID. Users set up profiles with their personal info and links to all Web content they would like associated with them—such as a Twitter feed or company website. Whenever your name is searched, your profile appears on the first page of results.

Reputationdefender.com will “monitor everything that is said about you online,” for “$15 a month.” It combs the Web, presenting you with all the pages in which you are mentioned, and allows you to rank what info you’d like to appear first when people search for you online.
