Why does personal online reputation management matter?
- Google controls as much as 92% of all search engine traffic.
- Nine out of ten internet users who search for information online do so through Google.
So, what you want people to see when they ‘Google’ you is a search results page filled with links that show you in the best possible light and really reflect who you are and what you do.
What’s the real influence and impact of different search results online to personal reputation?
Negative results are a huge worry for individuals. But highly visible positive search results on page 1, really influence perception, reputation, trust and opportunities, which is why it pays to look after your online reputation.
- Executives say that, on average, 49% of the reputation of their company is attributable to their CEO’s reputation.

- LinkedIn is the most-used channel for recruitment efforts — with 77% taking advantage.
- 79% of job seekers have used social media in their job search in the last year.
- What’s also worth knowing is that 91% of employers use social media to screen candidates and 57% of employers are less likely to interview you if they can’t find you online.
