Old Article Worth Seeing Again

Another Look At What Google+ and +1

Google+ is Google's social network platform and usually shows on a site as a button (see graphic on right). It's not like Facebook but more like Facebook and Twitter combined. But since we're talking about a network created by Google, it is much more important than any of the social networks we know.

It might not be too important to you and your friends, but it is important to your site's ranking on Google. Consider Google+ more like a voting and popularity network but with one important distinction - it belongs to Google. Anything you do on Google+ will most certainly impact your site’s free ranking placement and Web popularity. Google stated that it will be showing social results from your Google+ network in their Google.com personalized search results.

What this means is that for people and businesses embracing Google+ and start building their network now, there will most likely be additional benefits for their site's updates and links. This activity will be shown in your own personal and expanded network’s search/social results.

+1′s are Google’s version of voting for sites that have valuable content. If you find the content on a page beneficial, you may "vote" for it using a +1. What is crucial to understand is that a +1 is tied to your Google+ activity. These +1 votes will impact your site's visibility and ranking on Google.

We've been installing both these buttons on our client's site when requested. Admittedly, many of our clients find it confusing and don't fully understand the value of having these buttons. When you have the time, check this site for the Owner's Manual on this topic.
