“With more than 8.6 billion searches happening online in the month of April 2009 alone, search engines are the primary tool people use to navigate the Internet," says Jim Webber, executive vice president of TruReputation, Visible Technologies. "The influx of consumer-generated content on the Web, which can be highly biased or inaccurate, has caused the dynamic of search result rankings to rapidly fluctuate, making search reputation management even more of an imperative for individuals and businesses than ever before."

For Businesses, TruReputation allegedly helps protect reputations by:

- Serving as an early warning and protection system for potential crisis issues

- Mitigating crisis damage reflected in search engine results

- Repairing and rebuilding brand reputation

- Protecting and defending brand reputation by promoting the most accurate and relevant brand content

Along with the solution, the company has launched an index for representing reputation across all the major search engines. They call this index the TruReputation Score.
