Me on the Web, is a new Google tool that help make it easier to monitor your identity on the web and to provide easy access to resources describing ways to control what information is on the web.

Me on the Web, appears as a section of the Google Dashboard right beneath the Account details.

"Savvy web users may already have used Google Alerts to set up notifications for mentions of their name or email address in websites and news stories. If you haven't set up alerts yet, Me on the Web makes it even easier to do so and even automatically suggests some search terms you may want to monitor," Google stated.

"Me on the Web also provides links to resources offering information on how to control what third-party information is posted about you on the web. These include common tips like reaching out to the webmaster of a site to ask for the content to be taken down, or publishing additional information on your own to help make less relevant websites appear farther down in search results," Google added.
