schestowitzWe are 3 university friends who have developed a new approach to search marketing and I wanted to ask if this might be of interest to you.Jan 24 13:01
schestowitzThe basic idea is to add your brand as a new autocomplete suggestion in the search engine, so users see Dr. Roy Schestowitz while they are typing “amazon aws report abuse” for instance (other keywords are possible as well). This is what it would look like:Jan 24 13:01
schestowitz🔍   amazon aws report abuse 🔍   amazon aws report abuse recommendation dr. roy schestowitzJan 24 13:01
schestowitz🔍   amazon aws report abuse providersJan 24 13:01
