    More than two years on from launch and you could be forgiven if you are still a little sceptical over whether or not Google+ deserves a significant share of your time and attention. After all, while it is growing at a healthy rate, Facebook is still king of the social networks.

    However, Google+ has a lot more going for it than you might think. Particularly where SEO and the organic search rankings for your company?s website are concerned. Read More...

    Great share W130SN. I have no sympathy for any social network, but as professionals I gotta use FB and Plus and you name it. I think Google is certainly using its search monopoly to push Plus and we oughta be paying attention to that.

    I pretty much hate ALL the social sites but as you say we have to play that game and G+ will become more important (even though it is shit).

    If you are serious about your business you have to use Google+ for sure. We all want to rank in Google so it would be illogical to close our eyes to it while using other social networks.

    I thought I was the only one who believed in this. Google +1s and google reviews is gonna become paramount in the next few months.

    No matter how much Google tries to force people to use plus, the old rule for social sites still holds true. If the kids don't like it, nothing will make it popular. And the kids don't like it.
