Most people more than likely equate SEO with a system in which you can promote a business site or an affiliate site in order to get more business drawn to your site so you can make some profit. However, that is not all SEO can do for you. In fact, you can, if done properly use this same system to help you manage your online reputation.
Search Engine Reputation Management is getting increasingly popular these days. These are times when free thought and opinion is honored by the search results in blogging platforms, forums, social networks, etc. Because of this, companies that commit mistakes (who doesn’t?) can face grave consequences in having bad reputation results in the search engines. Reverse SEO is exactly for managing these negative search engine results.
