Anything posted public in Google+ gets indexed in the Google search engine and that absolutely helps with SEO!
I was doing research for a client on the economic overview of leisure travel and I click on a search result on the first page and it took me to a Google+ post. Later, when I mentioned this in one of my boot camp classes, a student says, “I don’t see any posts coming up.” I thought that odd and continued with the class. I found out why.
On my office computer, I use Firefox as my main browser. On my laptop I use Google Chrome. I did another Google search on Chrome and I got a G+ post in the first SERP (Search Engine Results Page). Then I did the same search on Firefox and that post didn’t come up. I then realized that…
Google+ posts only come up in Google searches done on the Chrome browser!
OK, so how important is this fact? How many people use Chrome compared to the other browsers: IE, Safari, Firefox and Opera?
Turns out that 69% of Internet users us Chrome!
In fact, the other browsers are losing users and Chrome is gaining!
Proof positive that Google+ is a crucial tool for search engine optimization (SEO)!
