Why is the Google+ Business Page More Important Now for Search Engine Visibility?
Have you noticed the new Google search results page? Google now shows up to four ads above organic search results and has removed text ads completely from the right side of desktop search results. Also, some serious weight and real estate has been given to Google+ and if you sell a product online, Google Merchant. Now more than ever, you need to update your Google+ business page. Google wins by providing users verified information on your business, and you win by increasing the Search Engine Visibility for your business.
While claiming your company’s Google+ page will not directly optimize your business website for Google search, it will optimize the information on your Google+ business page to appear in relevant search results. Start by completing the “About” section of your business page with keywords and use them as anchor text that link back to your company’s main website. Using your company’s Google+ page the right way will help your SEO efforts. So go ahead, claim and/or update your Google+ page and increase your Search Engine Visibility.
