Lately, there’s been quite a bit of traffic in the SEO world concerning yes, the latest info on Google+ and the use of (or non-use) of that ubiquitous +1 button. It used to be true and still is to a large degree, that incoming back links (IBLs to the SEO world) were a great measure for the ranking of a site…but as we’re seeing things change via both Google+ and the sharing of links in social media, the world is yup, changing, eh!

And with all that new info traffic, how can an SMB learn enough to be able to sift thru that data and come up with a game plan that will work – remembering of course that SMBs also have to run their business not just market it online…time we all know is an important item that no one can waste. So what to learn?

What a brilliant post to explain G+. And very clever of Google of course. I use the G+ button a lot on posts but still haven't got the hang completely of using Google+ as another Social Media platform. But I know I must. Thanks for sharing this great info on

re: "seems like" - you got that exactly right! In his new book Eric Schmidt the exCEO at google has said that their Google+ site will be way to gain rankings (I'm paraphrasing) and that's what us SEO & online marketers are seeing too...

I don't heavily use my Google+ page but I do have the social share button on my blog. I also don't directly rely on SEO to get traffic to my site, however, I've noticed that there's been a increase in the amount of +1's I get on my blog posts as of late. In some cases the +1's have outweighed the number of RT's I've gotten. Seems like Google+ is really demanding attention nowadays.
