With over 100 million users currently on Google+ and an estimated 400 million by the end of 2012, MDB Communications is proud to announce that we are launching a Google+ business page today, Thursday March 29th, click here to follow us! We are excited to explore this new social media channel and are looking forward to adding you and your business to our circles.
Until now, there hasn’t been much reason to have both a Facebook and a Google+ business page. Let’s face it; Google+ is very similar to Facebook – a social media channel where users connect with friends, share photos, post status updates and play games. So what changed our minds? Earlier this year, Google launched a new search engine optimization feature called “Search plus Your World.” This feature could potentially make Google+ a leading social networking site in the business world, since it allows for greater online visibility and a possibility of generating social signals, in this case “+1’s.” The feature also incorporates a new results section called “People and Pages” which, in addition to the traditional web results, shows Google+ pages. For your business, this means that your Google+ business page can show up here as a result of an organic search.
Here at MDB, we feel that “Search plus Your World” could present an exciting business opportunity. At this point, it is unknown if Google+ will actually dominate in the business realm, but we’d rather be safe than sorry. Therefore, be sure to check out the MDB Communications Google+ page updating you on the latest MDB company news, fun photos, and our new ad icon series, “Nostalgicon.” And remember to connect with MDB by adding us to your Google+ circles!
