Public relations marketing
A public relations foundation
Public relations builds brand legitimacy, credibility and awareness
Good PR establishes legitimacy, credibility and awareness of your business—the vital foundations for growth.
If other trustworthy sites, such as news publications with high domain authority, link to your site, Google and other search engines are also more likely to trust your site. For example, generally, sites with a large number of high-quality external links, such as Wikipedia, are high on the domain authority scale. Conversely, small businesses and websites with fewer links may score much lower on the domain authority scale. Brand-new websites always start with a domain authority score of 1.
As this trust builds, your site will begin to rank higher in search results. This, in turn, will generate more traffic to your site.
