How to Defend Your Online Reputation: Five Tips
by Dan Tynan, PC World, February 26, 2008

The article expands on and makes site recommendation for these top five hits:
1. Google Yourself
2. Comb the Web
3. Opt Out Early and Often
4. Do Your Own Background Check
5. Defend Your Reputation

Seriously. It’s a perfect literacy event for the 21st century.
Stephen

I would add that for parents, besides googling their own name, maybe they should google the names of their kids.
