What can you use the app for?

Trackur is a unique program that offers a new way to monitor your reputation online. Rather than relying on a simple search engine to produce results that include your name or comments about your company, Trackur can scour the web for references. The internet has become a vast marketplace as well as a fast paced environment to share information. Should inaccurate information be made available online, an individual’s reputation could be damaged as well as their livelihood. Trackur strives to help business people manage their online presence easily.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Trackur’s mission has changed little since it was first developed by Andy Beal in February of 2008. Beal, who is an expert in the field of reputation management, was searching for a simple way to monitor online reputations. There was an obvious lack of effective applications in this area and Beal sought to fill the void. After its initial introduction to the world of online reputation management, Trackur has grown in popularity among business clients. Many well known internet companies, from social networking sites to search engines, have come to rely on Trackur to stay aware of what is being said about them and their businesses.

What are the differences to other apps?

Trackur stands out among other internet search applications because it offers a focus on reputation. This easily overlooked aspect of business can greatly influence how well a company or independent contractor does in the online arena. It is extremely easy for a single person to blemish an otherwise good reputation on the internet. Even though you may not know them, millions of people traverse the web every day, and could potentially come across misleading information or negative comments that do not accurately represent an individual, product or service. Trackur offers a new way to maintain control over what appears on the internet so there are no surprises.
