You might be looking at the title and you’re wondering exactly what a brand mention is. Well, they’re references to a company, brand or service online. These mentions often happen in product or service reviews, blog posts, educational content and news articles. Brand mentions can directly affect the online reputation of a brand or product. One of the most important benefits of brand mentions is the bolstering of your brand’s online reputation of your brand.

What’s more, John Mueller of Google has even put his two cents into the topic of brand mentions in general.

When asked if brand mentions helped with SEO and rankings, John Mueller explained how brand mentions are not anything used at Google.
