Question for Jennifer: What does it mean that the site has slow link building, could you elaborate a bit more?
Jennifer: If you have any additional tools to suggest, or if you don’t think one will actually help me measure, please do let me know(for instance I have never used Google Analytics and am not sure whether it can help me measure time spent on Site or not)
Google has already begun to incorporate a company’s social engagement levels into its search rankings. Now that users can +1 a brand (the equivalent of a “like” on Facebook), +1 count could figure into the popularity and relevance rating of our brand in search results. Google could adjust search results based on even more types of social engagement the future.Creating an engaging brand experience Google+ comes standard on most Android phones and will immediately provide brands with access to a massive mobile audiencerun.to target content and maximize engagement. For example, you might have circles of users who took a brand survey, so you would add them to an “Engaged Responders” Circle. Another circle may include those who seem “Slow to Warm up.” Or maybe everyone would start in the “Slow to Warm up” Circle only to be moved to a more niche circle as they engage with your brand.
