The Google+ and +1 great impact on SEO

Jul 06, 11 google+1

Google love positive vibes (pun intended) that’s why the search giant announced recently the Google+ and +1. This are two new services that my fellow bloggers should watch out.

google+1

First let us talk about the +1 which basically a button which they substitute to “promote” icon we first saw on Google’s search results. This time Google makes it broader or shall we say common by bringing it to website level. The impact we think could be directly to the search results. Google says that “the +1 button is shorthand for “this is pretty cool” or “you should check this out.” Click +1 to publicly give something your stamp of approval. Your +1′s can help friends, contacts, and others on the web find the best stuff when they search.” So in short, the more +1 hits can make your site on top that obviously influencing greatly on SEO.

I have already cited this on techgeeze.com that even Mark Zuckerburg was checking the Google+. So you’ll probably guess that it’s something related to Facebook. Yes, Google is trying to come up with a “real social network” from their online services and properties. This can be later evolve to what is Facebook right now. It can be a tool on generating massive amount of followers or visitors if properly utilized, thus Google might integrate the +1 here so you’ll be rounding out the outcome not only down to website but to social network level.

What about the product itself? Google dubs Google+ as a “project” rather than a product, stressing it’s part of making Google itself more social rather than being a standalone social network to take on Facebook. “It’s ‘Plus’ because it takes products from Google and makes them better and ‘project’ because it’s an ongoing set of products,” said Vic Gundotra, the senior vice president who oversees Google’s social products.

From here maybe Facebook days might be numbered, knowing who holds the internet right now. With proper online marketing you’ll see what Google can do ahead.
