SanFranSEO is a San Francisco-based Online Reputation Management (ORM) company. It provides software and services to suppress unwanted articles online about an individual or business. It operates on a free demo model, where the do-it-yourself software is free to try, and a fee to continue with program. The user also has the option of having the company do it for them for a monthly fee.
The company was co-founded in January 2014 by two ex-Reputation.com employees, who realized the software they were working on could be used by the average computer user. The software is wizard-driven that automatically signs the user up for the highest ranking websites online, such as VentureBeat, Scribd, and Tumblr. The software also handles the search engine optimization (SEO) which allows these websites to overpower and suppress negative websites.
In March 2014, the company received $200,000 in an angel investment.
