Third parties that look out for the interests of consumers often give their seal of approval to companies that have lived up to or abided by their standards. These seals of approval show that these companies have a good online reputation. The seals are usually given in the form of website badges. When looking for these badges on a website, make sure you click on them and that the link takes you to the organization’s webpage, as some companies steal the image in order to come across as legitimate. Organizations with seals that are often used and can be trusted include The Better Business Bureau (BBB), VeriSign, Truste and BizRate.
