This is one of the reasons I love G+ and why Martin Shervington is my (social) hero. Here is a bit from the video description:

Every post on Google+ is indexed by Google, so content that is amplified on G+ can surface very quickly in Search. Check out the ‘SEO Facts’ and ‘Evidence’ here!

Watch the under 2 minute video to see why I’m a fan. It’s STILL all about Search.

  • How did you get new clients – and what do they say when they first meet you? :-)
  • Stroll down memory lane – how did it feel when you made that first $1000?
  • How do you stay current and leading edge with all the social media changes?
  • How much time do you sit at the computer? Is it all work?
