Do Brand Mentions Matter To Google’s Algorithm?

Brand mentions are basically mentions made regarding product or service reviews, blog posts, educational content and news articles. There are those who believe that brand mentions directly affect the online reputation of a brand or product.

Check out the video below to hear John’s full response.
