Twitter is one of the most popular and long-standing social media sites, with over 500 million users currently active. It is considered a “micro-blogging” site, where users can post short updates (up to 140 characters) that are sent out to all of their followers. It is a place where people can communicate succinctly, sharing information quickly all over the world. When an earthquake hit the east coast in 2011, some people saw tweets about the earthquake mere seconds before they themselves felt it. It’s a powerful tool for sharing information quickly and has gained credibility over the years. User’s tweets are often cited in news stories and are heavily indexed by Google and other search engines.

Google+ is a newer social networking site (launched in late 2011) that quickly gained popularity with a variety of users. There are currently approximately 500 million users that log onto the site for a multitude of purposes. It is useful for sharing news, updates and information just like any other social media tool. But Google+ also allows users to categorize their followers into various circles, making it easy to communicate and share with only certain circles (work, friends, family, etc). Google+ also allows for group video chat and screen sharing through the “hangout” feature.
We recommend that most businesses get a Google+ profile page but not primarily to connect with customers there. It is possible to post and share content with your customers on Google+ but it is more useful as a way to increase your rankings in search results through Google Authorship. Here is how it works: Google+ is designed to connect your profile (and photo) to content that you write on your website and anywhere else around the web. It is a digital signature of sorts for your articles, as a way to increase the quality of content on the web. When you connect your blog to your Google+ page, Google rewards you by bumping those blog posts higher in search results. As a bonus, it adds your profile photo to the search result, making it more attractive to those doing the search (see example below). It adds visibility, credibility and increased search ranking to your blog and website.
The Everbearing team can help you set up your Google+ profile and set up Google Authorship on your website. We can work with you to develop and regularly post meaningful-rich content both on Google+ and your website, to increase search rankings and help customers find your website when they do searches!
