How many college profiles is too many?

All the talk about online reputation management lately has me thinking. For a while, I have been using Google Alerts to monitor what’s being said about my clients, including the schools that I work with. Its just that with the hundreds if not thousands of college profiles sites out there, its tough for an online marketer not only to keep track of but to update constantly as well.

There are at least a dozen or so “new” sites being launched every day  or so and  for people that are not so seasoned in education, its tough to distinguished which website has the better more trusted track record.

Also, as it has been discussed over the past week, we can’t control what others say about our instituitions on their own websites.

In the end, we can only hope that prospective students and parents alike look at these profiles in a objective way and have the wisdom to go to the official website and call directly should  they have any questions.
