4 Secrets To Maximize Google Plus For Business - Timothy Carter

4 Secrets To Maximize Google Plus For Business - Timothy Carter | AQA BUSS 4 Google | Scoop.it

Excerpted and condensed...

 

A lot of naysayers complain that Google Plus doesn’t have what it takes to help businesses succeed. Those critics obviously haven’t taken a deeper look at what the site offers. When you know these following four secrets, you can maximize Google+ so that it works for your business.

 

Secret #1: You Need a Google+ Local Page

Secret #2: You Need Google+ Authorship

Google+ lets you set up an Authorship account that connects your blog posts with your Google+ profile. Actually, that’s a rather simplistic way of looking at it, especially considering that Google’s search engine now uses Authorship as a part of its ranking algorithm.

Secret #3: You Have to Get Involved

It’s fun to play on the Internet, but you have a business to run. That’s totally understandable. It’s important to notice that getting involved in Google+ is a part of running your business. Luckily, it doesn’t require as much time as Facebook and Twitter.

Secret #4: Use Google+ to Share Exclusive Promotions

Google+ doesn’t actually let you run promotions on its site. You can, however, use your circles to spread information about promotions. Include a link in your post that will take them to a site giving them the details or asking them to participate in some way.

Is Google Fiber a Better Deal? | Yahoo!

Is Google Fiber a Better Deal? | Yahoo! | AQA BUSS 4 Google | Scoop.it

 

Austin, Texas will become the next U.S. city to get a taste of Google’s (GOOG) high-speed broadband network. The tech giant’s experimental service will be available to Austin residents by mid-2014.

 

“Google says it targeted Austin because we are a creative place…and we have a lot of things that blend technology and creativity in ways that I think Google would love to showcase to the world,” says Stacey Higginbotham, an Austin resident and senior writer for GigaOM, a technology news site. “We are so excited here in Austin.”

 

Google may be synonymous with web searching, but the company’s entrance into the broadband sphere shows that it has bigger aspirations. Some of its other pet projects like Google Glass and self-driving cars are already transforming the computer and auto industries. Google Fiber may also be self-serving – the more Americans with Internet access, the more people will use the Google site – but Higginbotham says Google is filling a customer need that the major cable operators have been ignoring.

 

“Google started this as a way to push the envelope on broadband in the U.S.,” she says in an interview with The Daily Ticker. “It’s very clear Google really wants people to have more broadband and didn’t see the telcos or the cable companies really rushing to provide it.”

 

According to Pivotal Research, a nationwide rollout of Google Fiber would require an investment of more than $100 billion. Low margins and the high costs associated with building the required infrastructure are reasons why Google Fiber may be limited in scope, according to Higginbotham. But another factor altogether could determine Google Fiber’s fate.

 

“The return on fiber isn’t in the profits Google makes but in the ability to control its own destiny,” she says.

Google is trying to get its' hand into everything, and now they are trying to takover the music service streaing market. It would be hard for anyone new to run against Spotify, but luckily for them, their name is Google. Google's name alone attracts many people. Depending on their rates, Google could possibly run through Spotify and their members. 

Robby Colors's curator insight, October 8, 2014 3:43 PM

Since a large number of teens already use YouTube to listen to music it seems to be a natural fit. It seems to becoming a battle between the companies that stream music and for some labels and producers.  The music industry may have to change their distribution methods and bring them more up to date.

Publishers Settle Long-Running Lawsuit Over Google's Book-Scanning Project - Publishing - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Publishers Settle Long-Running Lawsuit Over Google's Book-Scanning Project - Publishing - The Chronicle of Higher Education | AQA BUSS 4 Google | Scoop.it

Publishers Settle Long-Running Lawsuit Over Google's Book-Scanning Project
By Jennifer Howard
After a seven-year legal battle, American publishers and Google have come to terms over the company's ambitious book-digitizing project. A settlement of the publishers' copyright-infringement lawsuit, announced on Thursday by the Association of American Publishers and Google, "will provide access to publishers' in-copyright books and journals digitized by Google for its Google Library Project," according to the groups' statement, and "acknowledges the rights and interests of copyright-holders."

Litigation over the book project continues, however, between a group of authors and Google.

Under the settlement, American publishers can now opt to remove their copyrighted books and journals from Google's library project or choose to make them available for use and sale. Beyond that, the statement offered few details, not revealing what commercial terms Google and the publishers have reached.

"It's now clear that we can choose to make our works available or remove them from the project," Tom Allen, president of the publishers' association, said in an interview. "We think this clarifies a lot." Under the deal, publishers that do not remove their copyrighted material from the project can get a digital copy to use.

Google deal with EU regulates search results - report | GigaOM Tech News

Google deal with EU regulates search results - report | GigaOM Tech News | AQA BUSS 4 Google | Scoop.it

 

In a sweeping proposed deal with European antitrust regulators, Google has agreed to include prominent links to competitors like Yelp and TripAdvisor in its search listings, and to label in-house services such as Zagat. The agreement also sets out restrictions on how Google sells advertising and how it treats third party content like news articles and restaurant reviews.

 

The long-awaited deal is significant because it concludes a multi-year investigation by EU competition authorities, and because it is the first time that Google has bent to government demands over how it presents its search results. The details of the five-year deal, which has yet to be formally announced, were reported on Saturday by the Financial Times.

Here's What You Really Need To Know About Google News' Patent | Forbes

Here's What You Really Need To Know About Google News' Patent | Forbes | AQA BUSS 4 Google | Scoop.it

Back in December, Google News was granted its second continuation patent in ten years, giving the layman some insight into the search giant’s algorithm, and how it chooses which articles to feature.

 

...The Claims section of the latest version of Google News’ patent shows a shift away from the traditional signals of a news source’s importance. Now rather than where a story is being reported, it is how a story is being reported both online and off that makes a difference in terms of ranking.

 

These signals, per the patent, include:

- How quickly an event happened before publication of an article about it took place,

- The “usage pattern regarding traffic associated with the source” means that the search engine is looking at things such as how many people click upon a link to specific articles from the source, monitoring traffic to articles from a source to see how often people click (or don’t click) on links to particular articles from individual sources.

 

They tell us in the patent: “Well known sites, such as CNN, tend to be preferred to less popular sites, such as Unknown Town News, which users may avoid. The traffic measured may be normalized by the number of opportunities readers had of visiting the link to avoid biasing the measure due to the ranking preferences of the news search engine.”...
