Negative content monitoring is essential for assessing the effectiveness of any reputation management strategy. The internet is a constantly changing environment, so the placement of your content will be in flux, too. For example, if Google indexes new sites or other rankings shift, your results will also shift. As the balance tips between your old search results and your new ones, it’s important to keep an eye on things. Negative content monitoring is also excellent for anyone who regularly receives reviews for products and services. If you are a high-profile organization or individual, bad reviews are inevitable. Monitoring them will allow you to deal with them as they arise and address legitimate business issues that need your attention.
