Brand reputation management is a vital cog and wheel to any enterprise, especially with online businesses. Oftentimes, our perceived value of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) revolves around gaining more traffic and online visibility by increasing the site’s web rankings in search engines specifically Google. While this is still the essential purpose of all SEO efforts both on-page and off page, search engine optimization also plays a crucial role in maintaining your brand’s good online reputation. Online reputation management works hand in hand with increasing your site’s popularity and web ranking.
SEO allows you to introduce your brand to different platforms thus engaging the broadest number of target audience.
Let us be clear here. There is a huge difference between launching your brand online and actively engaging with users on various platforms. Search engine optimization requires businesses to create their online company profiles complete with biography, vision, the scope of operation, products, services, and other basic information needed. By being transparent with your company information, you do not only invite people to check your product, but you also project your brand as a legitimate as part of a legitimate enterprise. Being actively present in various platforms online and laying down the necessary information relevant details to the public gives the online community and the general population the impression that your brand is authentic and that you mean business. Online reputation begins with laying your cards on the table and letting everyone know you are in the game. SEO encompasses link build, social media participation, and overall digital marketing aspect and principles. If you are engaging an SEO campaign, it means you are present in social media and various online sub-communities: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, and even LinkedIn. Publishing articles, posting statements and sharing pictures and images share one end goal- to reach to as many online users as possible. That is the same for your brand and SEO plays a crucial role in making sure this aspect marketing is executed properly.
SEO allows you to further promote your brand through published relevant articles and statements.
Content is pre-requisite is every SEO engagement. Whether it’s writing for page descriptions, products, and services write-ups, social media postings or SEO through blogging, you need content to launch and maintain an SEO campaign. Along with the right keywords, LSIs (latent semantic indexing and meta-descriptions, write-ups are the basic recipes for SEO campaign and in the long run, will serve as the primary component in perpetual brand reputation management. The content of your site as well as those you publish online will determine how you want the public to perceive your brand and in the future will be their basis in their interaction with your business. The key is to be consistent with your declarations and your actions. Quality blog articles play key roles not only in online reputation but basically in popularizing your brand and the services once they are optimized and rank in search engines like Google. However, simply publishing an article without incorporating well-researched keywords, well-placed meta-descriptions and branded keywords almost means nothing. That is why SEO is very valuable because they transform articles from mere propaganda material into an effective marketing tool that can turn the tide for your brand’s reputation online. The more your articles rank in Google search, the closer you are in cementing your brand’s authority online. SEO through Blogging is one of the key components in any online marketing campaign. But an extensive SEO through blogging campaign is not limited to your own site or social media platforms. There is the link building aspect of SEO and it can be achieved by social media sharing, by linking your articles with other site articles that share the same topic and industry, and the most underrated aspect, Guest Blogging. Guest blogging is one of the most effective link building practices because you established a connection with another established site and by doing so you share on their site juices. Guest blogging also does one important thing that we already mentioned above, and that is solidifying your brand’s online reputation and authority. Once the host site (which should be a legitimate and established site as well) will recognize you, it is an instant boost to your site’s credibility as well. And credibility is the unspoken most valuable currency in the marketing world.
SEO enables your brand name to increase online visibility and monitor how your brand is fairing through each post.
SEO means working with SEO tools. From creating optimized articles up to monitoring bounce rates and site rankings, SEO teams rely on these tools. But the most important use of these tools is monitoring how your brand is doing in platforms, in Google rankings, and in the online community in general. Without the SEO methods and technicalities that SEO tools such as EHREF, Search Console, Google Analytics, Google Webmaster, Web Console, Google Tag Master, and even Sq, your online brand reputation management will be useless. Because how can you manage and strategize if you don’t have the necessary data to monitor and analyze your brand and site’s overall performance? You are left in the dark and will be prey to miscalculations and mismanagement.
Moz, a software as a service company, reminds us that
“SEOs tend to use a lot of tools. Some of the most useful are provided by the search engines themselves. Search engines want webmasters to create sites and content in accessible ways, so they provide a variety of tools, analytics and guidance. These free resources provide data points and unique opportunities for exchanging information with the engines.”
Further stating that,
Search engines have only recently started providing better tools to help webmasters improve their search results. This is a big step forward in SEO and the webmaster/search engine relationship. That said, the engines can only go so far to help webmasters. It is true today, and will likely be true in the future, that the ultimate responsibility for SEO lies with marketers and webmasters.
It is for this reason that learning SEO for yourself is so important.”
SEO allows your enterprise’s legitimacy and further solidify your reputation through continuous engagements. There is no better way to build your reputation than through the grassroots. That said, extensive and intensive interaction with your target audience still remains the oldest trick in the book. Maintaining a dynamic website, consistent postings and updating via various platforms work best. Press release and event pictures are effective ways of communicating with the whole online community. Participating in online groups, threads, in actual events and public engagements still hold weight in your brand reputation management. Without actual engagements, discourse, and testimonies from you and your clients, your marketing campaign, no matter how complex will fail. SEO enables social media interactions, site partnerships, site linking, and other engagements, which is the very essence of building one’s reputation.
Search Engine Optimization might be tedious and expensive work at times, but it’s already itched in the modern marketing psyche. No online enterprise can detach itself from SEO and brand reputation management. No matter what industry as long as they are engaging in the online market, SEO will always be a key factor in building that business’s reputation and authority.
