Default Linking Google+ & Content

Hola

I have just been poking my nose around the webmaster tools and have been reading about linking Google+ - would you say there are great benefits in linking your content with your Google+ profile or is it a case of, yes go for it, everything helps?

I was just about to add the ?rel=author parameter but thought I would ask here before I went ahead

Thanks
Nutty

It's not just another tool for us to abuse as we strive to stream traffic,but to take advantage of.The thing with Google+ is that posts are crawled and indexed almost immediately,After all,Google would love to use this as a strategic advantage over the other social networks. Compare this to Facebook, where because of privacy settings and restrictions on data sharing, it's not uncommon for posts to never be crawled or indexed by Google at all.

Unlike Facebook, which hides data from Google, or Twitter, which directs Google not to follow most of its links, Google+ data is immediately and fully accessible to the company that built it.

A great deal of companies have done it and I myself use Google+. It definitely helps with the SEO, if that is what you are asking. I'd say go ahead, nothing to lose.

Best of luck!

Google plus is helping your content in the following ways :
  • Posts through Google plus will immediately crawled and indexed.
  • It will pass link equity.
  • It is optimized for semantic relevance.
  • Allows adding Google authorship to the content.

But make sure when you share/post within Google plus your post would public.

At first tthe authorship was used mainly by bloggers and writers, but now it is becoming more and more common to make such profiles for company's. And as the researches show, it is an effective strategy to promote the content and brand.

Google Plus content stays around, gains page rank, gives page rank and appears in search results over a long period.
