A recent report on the Washington Post states that Google already has an astonishing 20 million users. Ever since Google Plus ' beta entry into social media networking last June, the planet's biggest search engine provider has been busy incorporating its new platform onto the web. Sydney-based internet marketer James Schramko, who has been fiddling with Google since day one, asserts that Google is integrating social media into SEO. He explains : . The amount of pluses an article receives, for example, helps Google to pinpoint the quality of the content and therefore give the site a better rank.
It is like the Facebook Like button in a sense that your friends can see what you have 1'd. But that is not all. Those in your circles can now see a small image of you right away in the search results, which is an amazing way of associating oneself with content you deem of value. The image is an strong enough reason for mates to test out whatever it is you've 1'd.” . The report further signifies that the Google's new network is the quickest growing social media platform till now. Nevertheless users accessing Google only spend an average of just under six minutes on the site per visit which still isn't anywhere close to Facebook's 22 minutes. According to James Schramko, these statistics show that users aren't prepared to leave Facebook just yet, though Google is slowly distributing compelling reasons to give solid FB fans something to think about.
James announces “Google has included a stunning feature which will associate an author with content he posted by displaying a writer profile on the right of the search engine results. This makes it simpler to establish authority on the web. This is definitely something worth integrating if you're in the online business.” . Responses to Google is mixed, according to gurus. Not everyone welcomes the concept of having to painstakingly transfer all contacts from one platform to another, claims Schramko, especially since Facebook has blocked tools that would make migration to Google much simpler. “Facebook's move is comprehensible. They are for the 1st time, experiencing what it is like to have a heavy contender.
For us users this will only mean one thing – better services. It is good to have competition – the best in us typically surfaces when our existence is threatened.” -James Schramko .
