The idea being to instil trust into the visitor by appeal to an authoritative and recognised brand/ name( Riding on the shoulder of giants)
–Now to the nub of this question 😛 TAGEND Would there be any benefit to use this method, but instead refer to internet recognised brands. As example 😛 TAGEND
As find on … Google, Bing, Facebook, Linkedin( there are other possibilities but these are the big 4 truly)
Would this self acclimation has become a worthwhile thing to include on a site?
My personal view is … “so what”? Everyone can be found via Bing/ Google and it’s few and far between where a business does not have a social media part( even if that just means having a Facebook page)
What I would like to know is if this would be a valid tactic to earn trust of visitors to a site?
I eagerly await your feedback.
