With his post "Destroy Enemies Using Social Media Tools," search-marketing blogger Marty Weintraub worries that a recent rash of posts claiming to teach people how to defend their reputations on the Web could just as well be used as a how-to for trashing people online. Well done, Marty! Bad guys of the Web, place your pinky in the corner of your mouth and proceed:
- Jeff Quipp wrote 2 posts which comprise the definitive how-to guide for bad guys: "How to Bury Negative Online Mentions of You - Intermediate Level Tactics" and "50+ Sites To Help You Bury Negative Posts About You or Your Company!"
- David Wallace, in his post "Using Social Media To Help Manage Online Reputation," serves up an illustrated do-it-yourself guide to exploiting social media and blogs to "control" online reputation.
- Stuntduble, in the classic lay-it-out-for-anyone-to-easily-understand style, offers "Reputation Management Emancipation Proclamation - 10 Ways to "Own Yourself" Online." Think about the ramifications!
