You have to have a Google Plus Business Page for the most obvious reason – GOOGLE LOVES GOOGLE. Can we think of a better reason?
Do you know how much web traffic goes to links that appear on the first page of Google? How about 95% – is the fog lifting?
Google Plus pages are there – seriously there on the first page of a Google search.
Let’s dive in for a moment and really define what Google Plus is and what it isn’t.
Google Plus is not Facebook. You have friends on Facebook, and you have circles on Google Plus. You have likes on Facebook and you have +1’s on Google.
Yesterday when I met (and affiliated with) our new team member who is a keyword expert for SEO friendly posting he told me that he starts every new website client up with the best Google Plus page they can have. He knows the importance of linking the website and the page.
You need to sign up for a Google business page. It’s free, and it takes only a few minutes to fill out your business information and get your page online.Now because you need to be interested mainly in search results, you want to pay attention to the following points:
- Make sure your Google Plus page links to your website. This should be a no-brainer.
- Use the option to create a custom URL, as in: https://plus.google.com/+YourCompanyName.
- Use appropriate keywords in your tagline and your intro because this is where Google looks for them.
- Populate your business page with information about the business not you. Add those pictures and videos – oh oh oh and remember YouTube is owned by whom? Google.
Need help try this:
Remember instructions can change as do social media platforms. Go ahead jump in and be really social. Post unique content. Google loves unique content. Engage with potential customers. Build out your circles.
