  6. 6. Google + (you heard the hype, here’s the reality)<br /> Good for Individuals as Brands, not yet ready for Business names, but effective for marketing local business as yourself.<br />Justin Sanger, CEO of JoinHere, an interesting new SMB “Social Engagement Platform”,  puts it thus:<br />“A G+ and G Places integration will create the most powerful discovery, publishing, and social suite the marketplace has seen to date. The G maps algo will undergo more change as content contribution, followers, and +1s begin to affect discovery – rightfully so, as we move closer and closer to an algo that mimics the real world. A G Place will be the heart of G+ just as the personal profile is today and the company will begin to contribute content in the form of tags, deals, and informational posts. <br />My thoughts today on Search Engine Land: What Will Google Plus Google Places Equal?<br /><br />
