Google+ is astounding! It’s the fastest growing network in the world today. Even bigger, it has the power to do more than a social network. It is known as the “ultimate resource” to maximize your visibility on Google search pages. In the super charged competitive world of a small business, Google + is a tool that you simply cannot pass up.

Our Top 5 Reasons Why You Can’t Live Without Google+ Are:

  1. Google+ has a huge following! There are more active users of Google+ than you may realize. After a quick search on the Internet, we found that Google + now has over half a billion users.
  1. Google+ gives a super powerful boost to your search rankings. When a follower shares or responds with a “+1” to a post, it is equivalent to a social recommendation. These recommendations, or votes, let Google know what you’re sharing is being read and influences what searchers see in the Google search engine results page.
  1. When you add the “+1” button to your website to make it easy for customers to connect and to organically grow your network.
  1. The best thing about Google+ is that your online updates get indexed immediately into search results. Because of this, your Google+ network will have a better chance to see your content in their search results.
  1. Your search results stand out more! When you write your own original content, your Google+ profile photo will show up next to search results. These results get higher click through rates, creating more traffic to your website.
