GOOGLE+ STREAM
Unlike Facebook, Google Plus doesn’t want me to 
listen ONLY to MY friends’ updates…
Instead, they 
want me to see 
more and more 
content from 
outside of my 
circles to figure 
out what I like…
Google Plus allows Google to map the web of 
people (users), brands (business pages) and 
topics (hashtags)
@seosmarty 
HASHTAGS…
Google Plus 
would auto-tag 
your updates to 
place them better 
into the social

Google Plus is still in Google search results 
(for those who are viewing default 
personalized results)
Google Plus is still in Google search results 
for navigational search queries (showing a 
“linked” Google Plus page)

For everyone For logged-in users 
In many cases this is 
moved below the ads

BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN IT’S GIVING UP

SO.. WHAT HAS REALLY CHANGED 
SINCE THE LAUNCH?
(1) GOOGLE PLUS HAS CANCELLED THEIR NOTORIOUS 
“REAL NAME” POLICY ALLOWING PEOPLE TO USE 
PSEUDONYMS WHEN REGISTERING
(2) GOOGLE HAS CANCELLED THEIR AUTHORSHIP 
PROGRAM 
(GOOGLE PLUS IS NO LONGER USED TO IDENTIFY PEOPLE 
BEHIND CONTENT)
“REAL NAME” 
policy reversed 
(Jul 15, 2014) 
AUTHORSHIP 
stopped 
(Aug 29, 2014) 
THESE TWO MAY 
BE SOMEHOW 
CONNECTED
(3) GOOGLE PLUS IS NO LONGER AS PROMINENT IN 
SEARCH 
(AS PROMINENT AS ADS)
(4) RUMOR: GOOGLE TO END FORCED INTEGRATION WITH 
YOUTUBE & GMAIL
GOOGLE’S LARRY PAGE SAYS THEY WILL KEEP 
WORKING & IMPROVING G+ 
[GOOGLE’S REPS ADD… 
ESPECIALLY GOOGLE HANGOUTS, & PHOTOS...
“We’re actually very happy with the progress of 
Google+… The company is behind it.” 
~New Google+ Head David Besbris
WILL GOOGLE PLUS 
CHANGE? 
YES
IS GOOGLE PLUS 
HERE TO STAY? 
YES
WORTH YOUR 
TIME?…
Do you want to rank on top for your friends’ 
searches? Do you want your friends to see 
your face here?
