If you havnt checked yet, try running a major keyword search today. Using a keyword like “Cars” or “Music”, or a major business. You’ll notice in the top right hand corner, something new. Google is now showcasing Google+ people and business pages.
The location and eye attention that Google is putting into this is big. Imagine your business is on a main road. You have visbility, but your one of a dozen businesses that consumers see as they drive by. All of the sudden the corner lot on the major intersection is available for you to put up a nice big sign advertising your business and its free.
If you have ever talked to me, or even written some of my blog posts, I always encourage my practices to really embrace new technologies and medias. I have been pushing Google+ for 6 months now. Not because its the greatest thing in the world, but because its Google.
At this time, a local geographic search does not produce the same results for Google+ profiles that a major search does. I expect that to change in the future. Get ready but it looks like Google just changed a lot of where search engine marketing experts will focus their attention in 2012.
