Word-of-Mouth SEO – Optimize your online conversation

Word-of-mouth marketing is on the lips of companies and marketers right now. It represents a paradigm shift from push marketing to peer review and influence. Studies show that approximately:

  • 70% of people trust opinions of friends when making buying decisions;
  • 40% trust the opinions of someone trustworthy whom they don’t personally know.

Word-of-Mouth SEO is about creating quality optimized content people want to share online, talk about and link to. What makes you “talkable” and “linkable?” You need to act and write by standing out from the crowd.

“If you want to be remembered after you die, write something worthy of remembering or do something worthy of writing about.”

~ Benjamin Franklin
