Credibility in The Kalicube Process represents Phase Two of the process. Credibility demonstrates how trustworthy, reliable, and authoritative your brand or entity is perceived by  your ideal customers, search engines and off-search AI assistive engines. 

Search engines like Google and Bing, and off search AI assistive engines like ChatGPT, Perplexity and Claude, prioritize brands and content that exhibit high levels of credibility. Google explains credibility signals as EEAT. EEATT means brands that demonstrate experience, expertise, authoritativeness and trustworthiness in their messaging, content and actions. 

At Kalicube, we take Credibility a step further with our NEEATT framework—Notability, Experience, Expertise, Authoritativeness, Trustworthiness, and Transparency.

What is Credibility in the Context of Digital Marketing and Brand Presence?

Credibility In the context of digital marketing and brand presence refers to how trustworthy, reliable, and authoritative a brand or entity is perceived by humans, search engines and off search AI assistive engines. Building credibility with the Kalicube Process ensures that credibility signals are discoverable, digestible and understandable for the audience and BigTech algorithms.

Brands that Google understands are awarded a KGMID and a Knowledge Panel in Phase 1 Understanding.

In Phase 2 Credibility, Google can apply the credibility signals it finds online directly to the brand or KGMID. Brands that demonstrate strong credibility build a fortress of facts around their brand in the Knowledge Graph and increase the likelihood Google shows the brand to an audience looking for solutions the brand offers.

As the fact fortress grows, Google adds more information to the Knowledge Panel. A large, information rich Knowledge Panel means potential customers get more information about the brand in one place, the brand result dominates, takes up more space on the results page and they look very impressive.

1. Notability

At Kalicube, recognition isn’t just about being known, it’s about being influential in your niche. When your brand is known, it naturally attracts attention and respect, laying a strong foundation for further credibility.

4. Authoritativeness 

Authoritativeness means you are a leader or go-to source for information in your niche. Building authority means consistently producing the right high-quality content and engaging with your audience in the right places. 

Being in authority means you not only gain the trust of your audience but improve the confidence of the search engines, which prefer authoritative over generic content.

It’s not just about what you know; it’s about how you share it and how others perceive and utilize your insights. Building authoritativeness is a strategic process that can position your brand at the pinnacle of your industry – and The Kalicube Process tells you exactly how to do it.

5. Trustworthiness

Trustworthiness is a pivotal aspect of credibility that significantly influences user engagement and loyalty. Trustworthiness means doing what you say you do,  maintaining honest practices and consistently delivering trustworthy content. 

Trustworthiness involves transparency and reliability, ensuring your audience feels secure and valued. When users trust your brand, they are more likely to engage, convert, and become repeat customers, which is vital for long-term success.

Trust is the currency of credibility. Without trust, even the most notable and experienced brands falter.

6. Transparency

Being transparent about the owners of a brand, the stakeholders, the content creators means the search engines understand the people behind the brand. When the people behind the brand are credible, Google is able to apply the credibility signals to them, too, bolstering the credibility signals for the entities that comprise the brand. Transparency is a powerhouse of confidence.

From clear communication about the brand owners, the brand products and services to open dialogue with customers, transparency is the most underutilized tool in the credibility arsenal. The Kalicube Process does not work for brands that aren’t able to demonstrate transparency because it is essential for credibility. 

What is the Ultimate Goal of Building Credibility?

The ultimate goal of building credibility is for the ideal audience to view your brand as an industry reference—a market leader they trust above the competition—and for search and AI assistive engines to evaluate and fully apply the N-E-A-T-T credibility signals favorably when compared to competitors. Brands with credibility increase the likelihood that the machines will introduce or recommend your brand to your target audience.
