Question for Jason: I am working on an internal presentation to our sales force on new media tools for PR – digg, delicious, twitter and was considering adding in Wikipedia. This lead me to wonder how a PR person could use Mahalo to promote their cause.

I just got this question by email:

  • I am working on an internal presentation to our sales force on new media tools for PR – digg, delicious, twitter and was considering adding in Wikipedia. This lead me to wonder how a PR person could use Mahalo to promote their cause.

My response:

There are two things you can do:

1. Request a page be created.

2. Suggest quality links to Mahalo search results. If you look at Mahalo’s iphone page you’ll see a lot of folks suggesting links, and you’ll see us respond to them.

More here.

Since we’re human edited the good sites will get in and the bad sites will not. So, if you submit high-quality links that are BETTER than the links currently listed on a search result you should be able to get listed quickly (2-3 days). If you submit something that is lame/spam/not as good as the other links you will not get listed. It’s very fair considering the fact that it’s done by humans. 🙂
