I concur with Rob Frankel's statement that if had a really
strong brand, there would be recognition benefits to mention it when
referring to There is another angle here too though. has a *brand of its own* - it was a reputable and
successful site before coming under the umbrella. Long-time
users of SearchEngineWatch (like me!) would see slapping "'s" in
front of as an attempt to take credit for a site that
it had nothing to do with developing.

When does a brand add value? When it connotes positive attributes to a
product or service. For instance, when you go shopping for fabric softner,
do you look for Snuggle or Unilever products? Snuggle is more prominent on
the label for a reason! >>An aside: Unilever did not carry their branding
knowledge over to their Web site. Go to and try to find
some information on Snuggle - the Web site is all about the corporation.<<
