Google Tip: Trademark Registration

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

GOOGLE ALGORITHMS GIVE “BRANDS” AUTHORITY.  AUTHORITY PROVIDES BETTER PAGE RANK. Our studies at OttawayDigital.com indicate a heavy weighting by Google for Brands.  Nowhere is it recommended by Google that you create a registered trademark of your business name, but sites with registered trademarks in their content seem to outrank others.  We believe it’s worth the time and money to get a leg up, especially if your site faces entrenched competition.  Here’s all you need to do:

  • Go to USPTO.gov.
  • Click on the Research Database to make sure no other entity has registered your name.
  • Click on the Register Online option.
  • Complete the form.  (There are 10 helpful short videos to show you how.)
  • Submit form with $225 for streamlined process application.
  • Wait about 6 months for approval.
