Google+ has over 90 million users and is continuing to grow, despite some controversy about how much time users spend on the site. Google+ may not be challenging Facebook for market share in the social realm, but it is a very important site for marketers – particularly since the launch of Google’s Search Plus Your World. These personalized search results prioritize Google+ posts and links based on your circles and network; greatly impacting the organic search results for each Google+ user. Search Mojo experts go over the latest news about Google+ and how it impacts your SEO efforts in our webinar, SEO + Google+ = Total SERP Domination.
