The serendipity of connecting with Google+ now

At the basic Networking 101 level, we all learned that getting our names out and developing relationships was the name of the game. For job searches, Linkedin was and is a great tool. When keeping more closely in touch with your top shelf leads, Twitter remains both popular and efficient and Facebook, well, it has the numbers. But with the recent, highly controversial addition of Google Plus as a search factor for the dominant query engine, now is a good time to shift much of your social media focus to Google+. As a strategic networking move, engaging on Google+ can help better broadcast who you are and what you do, but it can also create those conditions that lead to a bit of helpful serendipity. Why now? Though admittedly speculative, the timing of Google’s use of its own social networking platform and on-going Federal Trade Commission (FTC) anti-trust hearings is unlikely a coincidence. Understanding a possible end-game for Google’s move is relevant to the reasoning behind networking professionals joining and engaging on Google+. Essentially, while Google certainly hasn’t improved search results for Google account holders, including those using Gmail, Maps and Docs, the strategy has resulted in hurried recommendations by marketing gurus to use Google+ for the search benefits, however temporary. The end-game? Google seems to be using the ploy to boost account numbers on Google+. As the number...

How Google’s +1 Can Benefit Your SEO Efforts

Have you taken advantage of Google’s latest trend, the + 1? If you have a website and you want traffic, you need to start thinking about how you can implement the + 1. Google’s + 1 is the newest trend that allows users to share their experience with others. Since Google came out with the concept, it only makes sense that it will be supported (i.e., given consideration in regards to traffic and rankings). Of course, that is just a theory. What is Google +1: Google’s new + 1 is kind of similar to what Google buzz used to be. This time, though, the goal is not to get people to converse or talk about any content. Instead, it is a way that users can recommend content to others who are looking for quality content. When someone comes across a website, article, or even one of Google’s advertisements, they can click on the + 1. When a + 1 is clicked, it turns blue so the user knows they have clicked the + 1 button. When other people come across the content, they can see that it has been approved by other users who have given + 1s. Of course, in order to + 1 a site, you have to have a Google account, but it is free to get one. The Google + 1 trend is one that...

E-Commerce Adopting Google+ Brand Pages

With the growing realization that social networking platforms can play a major role in a company’s overall marketing plan, the very recent addition to Google+ has attracted some heavy hitters. Two influences that have attracted the attention of major retailers are the hopes that using the search engine’s own social media product will have SEO significance and that a significant section of a prime buying demographic will be accessed, namely college students. With online learning now playing a significant role in traditional and adult courses, current and future generations of potential buyers may come around to the just launched Google+ business pages. Hitting the ground running: Open to the public on November 7th, Google+ Pages had a rush of early users. According to the tech research firm, Bright Edge, 61 of the nation’s top 100 brands created Google+ business pages within the first week of the site’s launch. Though nearly all of these same brands already have Facebook pages, such a strong initial showing serves as a measure of confidence in Google+. In addition to Pages’ strong showing, November traffic on Google+ spiked with its third largest showing in the social media site’s history. While more data is needed to determine where the growth came from, two likely suspects come to mind. Hangouts, Circles and the people who love them: Both Google+ user accounts and the site’s business pages...
