Your search results are your first impression
ReputationDefender’s free Reputation Report Card shows you exactly what other people find when they search for you online.
First we fetch your online search results.
Next, we use sophisticated scoring algorithms to analyze how those results affect your online reputation.
What do your search results say about you?
Frequently asked questions
To start, you give us the name that you want to search for. Usually this will be your name, but it doesn’t have to be.
Our system then does an online search for that name and we analyze the results that come back.
By looking at which results appear and how prominently, we are able to assign you a grade.
Enter the name that you want us to look for in the way that people usually search it.
For example, if your name is Jonathan Smith but everyone calls you Jon, you probably want to enter “Jon Smith.”
If you have a common name, you may also want to add some other bits of clarifying information, such as your profession or your city.
For example, “Jon Smith Dentist London.”
Good – Select if you are happy that this search result is associated with your name.
Bad – Select if you wish this search result didn’t show up.
Indifferent – Select if you don’t care one way or the other about the search result.
The report card is based on a name, not a person. If there are other people with the same name as you, their results may appear when people search for you online.
Is this good or bad? It depends on how you feel about it.
If you’re happy that results about someone else appear, mark them “Good.” If not, mark them “Bad.” If you don’t really care one way or the other, choose “Indifferent.”
There are certain types of websites that are usually good or bad, so when those appear in a search for your name, we automatically score them.
However, some aspects of reputation are “in the eye of the beholder.” That’s why we ask you to score some results yourself.
If you mark those results “Bad,” they will decrease your grade. If you mark them “Good,” they will increase it.
It depends on the nature of what is showing up online. Give us a call at 0800 131 0700 and we’ll be happy to give you free advice.

No. The search results we return are created by other people and companies. All we do is look online to see which pre-existing results are associated with your name.
