Reputation/Morozov: Scattered data about user behavior on a wide variety of websites can be collected to draw accurate conclusions about you. This is where companies like Reputation.com come in. They promise to help you improve your online reputation. Sometimes by manipulating search results, sometimes by asking site operators to remove dangerous content from the net, of course for high fees that they charge their users. This service was used by investment banks after the crisis of 2008.
