Google Offers Online Reputation Monitoring Tool

Google has launched a new, easier-to-use tool, allowing anyone with a Google account to monitor what personal information about them appears online. Called “Me on the Web,” the tool lets users create email alerts that are sent whenever their name is mentioned or their email address is made public online.

“If you haven’t set up alerts yet, Me on the Web makes it even easier to do so and even automatically suggests some search terms you may want to monitor,” said Google’s Andreas Tuerk in a blog post explaining how to use the new tool.
