Rain Silverhawk put together a nice collection of website services the you can use to monitor your online reputation. I wanted to pass this information on to my Sonoma County Wine Country Real estate agents and to my Santa Rosa, Ca team. I would also add steprep.com to this list. Otherwise, it's a wonderful list of online tools. Thanks Rain!
