Why Google-Plus Has No Competition - Page 2
There’s a big difference though. What will start happening is that for anyone, perhaps logged out of Gmail and of Google-Plus, or not having an account there at all, search results will be influenced by social acceptance. Any Google search will favor +1’ed pages, people with Google-plus profiles, and sites linked with Google-plus pages, like my company, Brain Gain Recruiting (sorry, I just couldn’t resist :)).
To be more precise,
For people who have Google-plus presence results will be affected by their “social graphs” and especially by their circles.
People who search on Google but are not part of Google-plus (or are searching Verbatim) will still be encountering Google-plus- or +1- favored pages higher up in the results.
What this means for you: if you are looking for any type of business partners or clients, you must get on Google-plus ASAP if you haven’t. Here’s your chance as a business owner, as a job candidate, as a hiring company, or as an expert. You can get way ahead of much larger companies and sites that are still investing in the “old-school” search engine optimization (SEO), of which you may have never worried about because of your business size or your budget.
Google-Plus Strategy: The people who can gift your sites with +1’s and include you and your pages in circles will help you get to the top in search. Therefore, you will benefit from providing great service, great content, and help in general to those who are visible online. In return, not only they will be finding you in their search results, but everyone else will, too!
