⚑ How to earn 60+ links and placements with a ChatGPT reactive PR campaign

This week, Fery shares how they developed a ChatGPT PR reactive campaign that landed 60+ links and placements including sites like Yahoo News (DR 92), The Wrap (DR 84), and Time magazine (DR 92).

It all started by going to Similarweb, and finding that the OpenAI website had become one of the most visited websites in the world due to ChatGPT, ranking 44 globally.

They used the statistics from Similarweb to create a detailed press release about the findings, and used Roxhill and Muckrak to find journalists that write about technology and digital adoption.

⚑ Announcing the new SEOFOMO Mascot Name, "Ranky"

A couple of week's ago I asked you to help me name the new mascot of SEOFOMO by suggesting names! Many were sent over Twitter, LinkedIn and even as a newsletter reply.
