A branded vertical is where a microsite is on the same URL as the company’s main site. Microsites tend to be used to host individual campaign/event promotional content or for regular, ongoing content, such as a blog. The main advantage of having a branded vertical is that the SEO ranking will be to the benefit of the company’s main site rather than a separate URL.
