If you dislike the idea of sharing everything about your life with everyone, you'll love the "Circles" feature of Google+. Circles allows you the ability to share news updates with only certain groups of friends. For example, one circle could contain all your closest friends, another could contain your parents, and yet another could contain all the friends who partied with you in Las Vegas last weekend. Share updates with just one circle or multiple circles of friends.
Below the most important and crucial steps you need to take to get it right, because google is very strict and without a proper business listing within google maps, your site will simply not show in the local search. It really is very important.
June 2011 saw the beginning of a limited field trial of Google Plus. Google, owner of the most popular search engine on the web, is taking on Facebook and Twitter to get its piece of the social networking pie. Even with the limited trial, Google+ already has over 10 million users within several weeks. Here are some of the benefits of Google+ and more information about the Google+ Project.
Having your business directory listing accurate helps Google know that your business is legitimate. It also helps to include as much information as possible in the listing. This is true for your website as well. When Google sees the exact same information in both your website and your business directory listing it will rank both your website and your business directory listing higher in search results.
So while Google Plus is still really struggling to build much of a following, the social network battle is really second fiddle to the billions of advertising dollars that Google sees every year. Facebook is poised in an uncomfortable position of having one of the most powerful technology companies around trying to figure out how to compete against them and the potential of backlash from users who generate the content that keeps people on the site.
It may be, but it may be too early to tell. Although Google rules Cyberspace, it is run by humans like you and I who make not so optimal decisions at times. For example, some time back Google implemented a voting mechanism to their search listings, referred to as the "voting" button.
The first topic is Google Circles. These are the circles (groups) of people you you set up and/or join. The best example of how this works is from Google itself. Watch the video attached to this article for a quick turtorial.
Google's response:- In response, Google said that it is simply making the search results more relevant by including information and content from real people.
The +1 service, enabled in your Google Profile, lets people annotate search results and ads so that they can publicly recommend web pages. The reach of this feature is not limited to friends or others in your social group: all +1's are publicly visible on your profile as well as visible in the result of a search. People viewing results see the number of Google users that recommend pages in the search results, plus the names and photos of people they know.
In here, one could just click any image and it will be immediately added in your sparks list. When I first heard about this, I thought; what a great idea!
