Default You Just Got Run Over By The Social Media Bus -Google+ Places

If you do any kind of local SEO and If you questioned needing to be in any kind of social media site...

You just got run over by the bus!

Google has replaced your places page or will be with a google Plus Page. I did not realize the impact here until one of my customers volume dropped slightly. After further review I notices that all the local results have turned into places pages.

The data is similar that is displayed but now this aspect of social exposure increases and reviews will become more apparent in the near future. As well as change the dynamic of how your social media will impact your placement in the results.

Fortunately, small changes to your places page will push you around in the results right now but with this change what will influence your position on the first page?

Will it be your reviews?
Will it be your friends?
Will it be your content?
Will it be links to your plus page?
I am sure everything will have a factor.

Any thoughts?

You are right. Social media actually plays a great role in SEO. Almost all the webmasters use social networking sites to improve their site's ranking on SERPS.

Even social media backlinks now have become the most important backlinks for SEO. Since Google also organizes sites by their social popularity, so it has become a great important element of SEO. Besides, social sites introduces your site to the world and keeps it live among it's visitors and users. That's why it is becoming more and more popular day by day. Thanks..

Default Regionalization of your content

I was wondering if anyone was going to respond. I thought we had a lot of internet marketers on here. This rationalization of content and results has effected and will continue to effect all of us.

Being on the first page in Los Angeles does not mean that you are in san diego

This is an interesting article:


it is clear that SERPS are going Local and you can see that results charge depending on where you are in the world today.
