Over 90% of people use search engines to locate products, services, and research information and businesses online. With the growing popularity of search engines and with over 160,000 new blogs & forums hitting the internet each day there has been an increased opportunity for the public to express and vent their views and opinions - the good the bad and the ugly. It is not just the public who are participating. It has been estimated that over half of negative blog and forum entries relating to commercial brands, products, and services are the work of unethical competitors trying to gain an unfair edge over their competition.
There has also been an increase in the number of 'flame' sites and complaint portals that have been established and appear within search engine results. These "Complaint Portal" sites allow consumers, competitors, and anyone with internet access to publicly post negative information about companies and individuals. These sites contain unverified and unscreened negative information, reviews, stories, and sometimes flat-out slander about thousands of companies and brands. Some of the most popular sites like these are RipOffReport.com, Complaints.com, My3Cents.com and consumer affairs.com. Many companies find their company name within search results that link to negative information posted on these complaint portals.
