Why Google+ Matters to You

You may have heard about Google’s recent launch of its social network, Google+. Besides having a terribly difficult name to type and punctuate, Google intends to make Google+ more than just a social network. In fact, Google is looking to make its entire search experience more social.

Google+ is radically different than any other social network out there. If you are not involved with any other social network yet, Google+ is the place to start. While the useage of Google+ is still fairly limited, early adopters can see an instant impact by using Google+. Why, because Google+ affects Google search results.

Until now, Google’s rankings were based off of a variety of factors. With the release of Google+, Google is encouraging users to click on a +1 button to share content with friends. A +1 is a the Google equivalent of a Facebook ‘like.’

Google searches are becoming increasingly personalized. Your search results may be radically different from that of a friend of yours, even though you searched for exactly the same thing. With the addition of Google+, Google has indicated its intention to integrate your friends’ activities on Google+ with your search results.

Google+ offers a powerful way to address an increasingly personalized Internet. You can now micro-target your Internet marketing efforts more than ever. Determine your target customers and then get their friends and other online contacts to interact with your Google+ page. Someday, you will not have to compete with a million other companies similar to yours. Rather, you will be able to target your efforts on users in your area who interact with your current fan base.
