Day 29: SEO and Google+

Hi friends,

SEO and Google+, what does their future hold? It’s too soon to tell but if I were a business, I’d start using Google+when they allow businesses to because:

  1. Your business will look like the lionhearted pioneer that you are when you were one of the first businesses to use Google+ before it skyrocketed into success, if it skyrockets.
  2. Your business will look like the lionhearted pioneer that you are for trying out Google+ if it failed, if it fails.

Both show you’re not afraid to know when to take a chance.

This week’s shown that Google+ may be taking a bite of Facebook, with reports of their member usage letting up and a privacy overhaul that eerily resembles some of Google+’s privacy methods.

My mom brought up a great point this Sunday when she told me Google+ and Facebook are neck and neck with younger generations. Even though Google+ is two months old and only allows users to be 18 or older, if both sites stick around, future generations won’t know of a time when there was only Facebook. Older generations may find Google+ to be young and small right now but that’s only for this time period. Size and age can be relative factors to some special products and services.

Time and capitalism will tell how Google+ affects SEO, if it will at all.

Thanks for reading,


PS Watch this great video with SEO sensei discussing how SEO and Google+ could play out.

Disclaimer: I’ve been on Google+ for two weeks now and I must say I like it more than Facebook. It’s cleaner and connecting with others is smoother. It seems like Google+ wants to connect users with other users more than Facebook does right now. Don’t be shy, add me, John Wiehe, to your circles if you’d like after reading.
