  1. 1. + : BUSINESSES WHAT’S IN IT FOR Google+ has long been touted as a ghost town because of its apparent lack of activity, and many overwhelmed marketers wonder “what’s the point?” as they try to justify creating yet another social media profile for their companies. Here’s the point: the pros far outweigh the cons when it comes to establishing your business on Google+. Here are 7 benefits your business could be reaping from Google+: It’s growing fast According to Google, Google+ is the fastest growing “network thingy” (more than just a social network) EVER. It’s more active than you think Google+ has over 135 million active users, 60% of which log in every day. A whopping 500 million have Google+ “enabled” accounts. Google+ influences search rankings Shares or +1s of your Google+ posts act like social recommendations that influence what searchers see in Google SERPs while they’re logged in. Tip Don’t forget to add the +1 button to your content on your website to get even more +1s. Your Google+ posts get indexed quickerthanthis The status updates you post on Google+ are indexed immediately into search results, increasing the possibility that your Google+ network will see your content in their search results. Tip Optimize your Google+ posts with appropriate keywords and create headline “tags” by putting asterisks around your post headline *like this*. Here’s what it will look like: You can claim your authored content By creating a Google+ profile and linking it to your website or blog, you can claim authorship of your content – meaning your Google+ profile photo will show up next to search results for your posts. This means • Higher clickthrough on those search results because they stand out more. • More traffic to your Google+ profile, which is linked in the search result. • More traffic to other content authored by you, via the the “More by” link in the search result. You can get found locally Google+ Local pages are indexed into Google search results. So, a strong Local page that includes all of your pertinent business information, has a high engagement with users in Circles and encourages reviews will keep it fresh and increase ranking. Tip If you already have a Local page (formerly a Google Places page), you can create a Google+ business page and merge the two for even more features to help your business. Google+ Communities let your customers do the talking The newly-launched Google+ Communities give your customers a place to mingle with each other about your products. It’s a great way to get feedback and engage with your customers in a meaningful way, plus all content posted in a Community (either Public or Private to invited members) is indexable by search.
