Even though Google+ is no Facebook, its content will appear in Google’s organic search results. In light of this, it’s important for your business to have a page of it’s own.
Here are some interesting statistics on Google+ activity and growth:
- Google+ attracted over 100,000,00 users within the first 6 months of its launch
- 63% of Google+ users are men with a tendency to post about technology
- Sites with a Google +1 button across their site generate 3.5 times more visits to their Google+ Page than those without the button
The following infographic from our friends over at Search Engine People reveals some of the SEO value one can look forward to when they properly set up a Google+ profile/page. Enjoy!
