What makes a good online presence? According to Reputation.com:
-- The first page of Google results are all positive.
-- No negative results on first few Google pages.
-- Top Google results are from credible sources.
-- No links for other people with same name.
-- Being quoted in reputable publications and working to crosslink to the online articles can not only improve your positive search rankings but can also create a favorable impression when current and prospective clients and business partners Google to see what they can about you.
