New Tools for Managing Your Online Identity

U.S.A. Today recently ran an article about managing your online identity that showcases new tools for organizing and clarifying a person's online references, improving search rankings, differentiating people with common names from one another, and cleaning up digital dirt.

ClaimId users can create a directory of links to information about themselves on the Internet, a system much like the one used by, an online bookmarking service. Users can also add descriptions to distinguish their entries from those of someone else with the same name. Naymz users can create a profile and link to other resources that reference them such as a blog, photo or social networking profile. Reputation Defender can search for and legally destroy some information that exists about a person online. Whether you are in a job search or not, everyone can benefit from a career management strategy that incorporates a regular assessment and "spring cleaning" of their online identity.
