We’re often asked “What is Google Plus and Why Should I Care?”. Google Plus is one of the newest social media platforms and you guessed it; it belongs to Google. Love em or hate em, right now Google OWNS the Search GAME. There is a such a thing as “search result data integrity” which means search engines are supposed to return unbiased results. We’re not saying Google skews and or plays with results we’re just saying Google is king of search right now (and into the foreseeable future) and we believe it pays to play by the rules of those who own the game. Make sense?
Google Plus is basically Google’s social network, but it packs a lot of power for a business when used properly. Google’s aim with Google Plus is to personalize our Web experience by gathering data about us, by tracking our shopping, social and basically all web activity.
