Reputation management is one of the latest buzzwords in internet marketing and can make or break your blog. Before you can manage your reputation you need to be able to monitor what people are saying about you so I decided to share some of the tools I use to monitor my reputation online.

All the resource below offer RSS feeds that can be added to your RSS reader. I use Netvibes for my feeds.
The feeds below are specific to BlogStorm so you would need to alter the url before you use the feeds.

If you keep an eye on these feeds then there is very little that can escape your attention. Making sure you vote for your own stories on sites such as Digg is a good way to help them get popular. Hopefully Sphinn will make it a bit easier to monitor in the future. There are more tools you can use but most of them offer similar information, I like to strike a balance between missing some information and spending too much time feed watching.
