  • This uncertainty is underscored by the fact that more than half (56%) of companies responding said that they didn’t know whether this new approach from Google will have a positive or negative impact. Around a fifth (21%) of in-company respondents and 35% of agency respondents said Enhanced Campaigns will have a positive impact, significantly outnumbering those who said this was a negative development (14% and 21% respectively)

  • Research by GlobalWebIndex published in May 2013 claims that there are now 359 million active users of Google+, making it the second largest social platform in the world, well behind Facebook but significantly ahead of Twitter.
  • What have you / your clients done since the launch of Google+?This survey shows that nearly half of client-side marketers say their companies have not taken any action since the launch of Google+, though the majority (75%) of agencies say their clients have typically created a Google+ branded page. Although more respondents than last year are aware of the impact of Google+, it is clear that most are not using it to a greater extent than creating a branded page, and more than half of companies and 50% of agencies are not linking AdWords campaigns to their Google+ accounts. The impact of Google+ is understood by a higher proportion of agencies this year, with those citing ‘don’t know’ when asked whether Google+ was having an effect on their clients’ campaigns decreasing greatly from 45% to 28%. The understanding of companies has increased to a lesser degree, with ‘don’t know’ answers decreasing by just 5%. Agencies remain ahead of in-company marketers when it comes to understanding Google+, a trend that was first identified in last year’s survey not long after its launch. In summary, many companies and agencies are not embracing Google+ to any great extent, something which is symptomatic of the separate treatment of social media and search by almost half of the responding companies. Google continues to innovate and focus efforts on its social features, though it remains to be seen when companies will seize the opportunity to integrate their search and social marketing activities.
