Is It True That Google Plus Activity Has No Search Ranking Benefit?

14 Comments so far

Google Plus Effect On Search Rankings
“Does having a strong presence on Google+ affects your presence on Google as a whole? Or more precisely, does it have any direct impact on Google’s search rankings? “. This is one for the debates, as people often dispute it, essentially because the Google Plus share link is a dofollow link, which means it passes PageRank. But as Google's Matt Cutts told us time and time again, Google Plus activity might not actually give you any search ranking benefit, as suggested by one latest study by Eric Enge,  co-author of The Art of SEO and a speaker at SES SF 2013.

The Google Plus comments integration with Blogger is turning quite some heads now, and a lot of bloggers have gone ahead and implemented it. This seems to be one of the biggest improvements in Blogger over the recent past. And at first glance, it looks pretty slick, with a clean and solid implementation. It makes things really easy, especially for bloggers who can track the conversation more easily. At the same time, readers can contribute right from Google Plus, without needing to open the blog. However, upon closer inspection, it seems that the new implementation isn't without its flaws.

What is generally seen is the fact that many bloggers often interact with their readers too friendly that their readers start taking their piece of knowledge for granted. There are no doubts about the value of the readers and a blogger should interact with his readers but again in a professional way.

Believing in the importance of smooth conversations in between the publishers and the readers, Google has now introduced a new way to link your devoted readers in your blogger post editor.

Google Plus Overtakes Facebook In Customer Satisfaction

15 Comments so far



Facebook might now be facing a grim reality after a latest survey by the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI), which revealed that Facebook users are not satisfied with the happenings at the social network lately. More worrisome for Facebook is the fact that while its customer satisfaction is plummeting downwards, its rival network, Google Plus, is catching up fast! Not only that, other social networks like Twitter and LinkedIn have overtaken it as well with respect to customer satisfaction. To make matters worse, Facebook hasn't made much of a mark ever since its IPO and its first quarterly earnings as a public company. So what does this mean? Has Google Plus finally found the opening it has been looking for, or has Facebook yet to see the worst?

Sharing blogger posts on google+
Social Media promotion is every blogger's need. If a blog is an engine, then social media acts like a lubricant, without which a blog would stall. This is why bloggers need to share their awesome content so that people around the world can know about it. To that effect, Google is trying to help out bloggers by ruffling quite some feathers. Recently, Google released the Google Takeout service that lets you merge two Google Plus accounts together. Now, you can connect your Google Plus account with Blogger to easily share your posts and also gain recognition for your work on social media. A share box will automatically appear when you publish a post, with which you can instantly share your content with the world! We'll look at how we can do this in this post.

How To Merge & Manage Two Google Plus accounts Together?

29 Comments so far

merge two Google+ accounts together
When Google Plus originally started out more than an year ago, it was somewhat exclusive to Gmail accounts. most people signed up using their Gmail accounts, which might not have been their primary accounts. So they ended up with their Google+ operating on one Google account, and other services on another. In such a scenario, managing multiple Google+ accounts can be a headache, especially since you need to log out of one to use the other (unless you're comfortable with changing your browser). An any case, you might end up having two Google+ profiles, with similar friends, or more followers on the account you do not want. Well now, there's a solution for you. You can merge your Google+ accounts together into one, so you can easily manage your circles, posts, photos, and more!

Google+ has already gained 40 million active and registered users, which might not be much by Facebook's standards, but definitely a great by a fledgling social network such as Google+ itself. While most brands have a presence on Facebook, not all of them are as active, or even present on Google+. This gives you the perfect opportunity to bring out your brand on a whole new battlefield, and utilize the potential offered by the 40 million or so people. Hence, now would be a good time to start thinking about extending your brand to Google+ by creating a Google+ Business Page.

Google Explains The Difference Between Google Plus, +1 Button & Search

Google Plus

Google+ is the most recent player in the social networking field. When it first came, we reckoned it was just another attempt by Google to counter Facebook's increasing dominance, and that it will fail like other projects from Google in the past such as Google Buzz, Orkut etc. But now, it seems that it is obviously here to stay. Google+ is a lot more than just a social networking website. The +1 button isn't just another Like button, as you will see later in this post. Google+ is a site where you can show your interests, have connections, and build an identity. It's a friend of webmasters, who can achieve a lot more by using this simple social site. In a way, Google is trying to provide a coherent experience to the users by introducing all their products such as Google Search, GMail, Google News, etc. And Google+ could be the glue that holds everything together to provide an uninterrupted and 'seamless Google experience' to the users. In this post, we will talk about how important Google+ is, and why should you use the +1 button, and how it all helps webmasters.

4 Comments so far

develope google plus appWith Google+ emerging as a better social connecting network; application developers (and just the curious student programmers) are eagerly waiting to start with some cool google + app. Of course everyone of us wish to develop and setup a Google+ app but how?

Fortunately or unfortunately, google+ API is not yet available to public. API (Application Programming Interface) can be understood as protocols or rules for building specified software applications. Google+ engineers and programmers are taking their time to develop a stable API before involving thousands if not millions of 3rd party developers with them.

Google Plus Posts are now crawled by Google Robots!

11 Comments so far

I had heard that Google will soon crawl data shared on their newly born Google+ social network in order to bring a new change in their search pattern. Amazingly just today I searched for one of my posts and I was shocked to see that even my Google+ status post appeared in the search results page. This shows how significant role will G+ plus play in days to come. I will highly suggest that you +1'd all your posts and add a Google Plus badge to increase the number of your followers because this new sharing +1 button has a lot to disclose for Search engine Optimization experts and before its too late you must start making good use of it. I had expected this to come after the introduction of +snippets. Please see the screenshots of the SERPs that I observed:
