Google  for inbound marketing

Since it came on the scene in 2011, Google+ has been used as a social media platform, identity service and SEO tool by its 540 million users. Despite such a large audience, Google+ hasn’t taken off the way other sites have. That may be changing, though.

Why do you need to profile your business on Google+? Well, for one, Google is the most popular search engine around. So, it only makes sense that Google+ users get more online exposure than other writers. This increases your chances of getting targeted blog visitors from organic searches through Google.

Why Websites and Search Are So Yesterday

In a recent Wired article, David Gelernter argues that websites, search engines and computers, as we know them, are going away and are being replaced by streams of information.

I'll admit, I don't use Google+ much at all. To me, it's the equivalent of having another email inbox to deal with, another social network that you must update daily or die. Many people agree with me, but many think I'm missing the boat entirely. TechRepublic did a poll recently, and 55% said that G+ is "doomed to imminent failure" while 45% disagreed. There are some heavy hitters out there like Robert Scoble and Chris Brogan who think the Google social network is the bees knees. So what's a neophyte to do—jump on the bandwagon or politely decline? Since it's another election year, let's take a fair and balanced look at the issues (NOT!).

Some people aren’t aware, but there are actually thousands of social media websites out there in the vastness of the Internet. The large majority of which are mostly unknown in marketing and media circles and will probably remain that way into the future. Not only are 99% of social media websites virtually unknown, they will probably never experience mass adoption like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

The social media world is buzzing with the much anticipated release of Google+ Pages for businesses. Blog posts and chatter are popping up all over the internet. This isn’t a post about how to set up a page or even why you should, but rather how to leverage a Google+ page for website SEO.
