How Google Plus changed the way I think about Google Plus

Perhaps you’ve heard of Google+, the second largest social networking site in the world.  I must admit that since it launched in 2011, I had been reluctant to use it.  After all, doesn’t Google+ hate puppies and happiness?  I was probably reluctant because nobody likes to be spoon-fed by being told what to like and what not to like.  (Also, the reason I don’t like MLM’s but that’s another story.)  At first, I felt that Google was just grasping at straws to insert themselves into the Social Media age.

Google+ Makes Social Media Waves

It seems like everyone has at least one social media account these days. Your parents have Facebook accounts. Your ten-year-old nephew uses Twitter. Social media networking has even begun to replace weekly phone calls to Grandma. Social media has also become an extremely effective channel for marketing. So which social networking sites offer the most to their users? Current numbers put Facebook in first place, with nearly half of social media users preferring it over other sites, but Google+ has zoomed to the number two spot. Many have asked whether Facebook should be worried about the rise in popularity of a fairly new platform. With Google+ tips being shared more frequently everywhere, social butterflies are more likely to flitter over and check out its features to see what it has to offer. But will it ever surpass Facebook as Internet users’ favorite social networking site? For starters, let’s take a look at some differences and similarities in a few of Google+ and Facebook’s features.

Winning the Google+ Game

Is your business on Google+? If not, it should be. This social network carries a lot of potential for your company to win you new customers. For example, Jeffalytics recently tested its influence by creating four websites with varying G+ usage. One had no Google+ presence, and it did the poorest in terms of search-ability. The website with the strongest G+ presence, on the other hand, ended up ranking as the 8th result for its target keyword.

G+ is now the world’s second-largest social media network with 343 million active users. G+ means serious business for SEO and social media marketing, and it’s too late to ignore starting its presence any longer. Here are some ways to go from zero to network domination overnight:

Guest Post: Make No Social Assumptions

Any time I'm asked where businesses should focus their social media marketing efforts, my default answer is, "Go where your target market or audience gathers, first and foremost. Everything beyond that is secondary." If your target audience isn't on Pinterest or Instagram, having a presence there shouldn't be a primary concern for your business. Elementary stuff, right? Then, there's Google+, which has fallen prey to a huge misconception among business owners and even a lot of digital marketers.
