What an incredible journey, we’ll call it, when it comes to Google+.
Before Google+ was released, it was noted to be the “Facebook Killer.” But, deep down inside we all knew that it was going to fail. Facebook is, and for a long time will be, the social media king.
So Google+ was released and I made an account. I found it to be, well, rather confusing. Circles are interesting but I’d rather just have a big pile of friends and call it a day. Navigating between pages wasn’t exactly the easiest thing to do and it seemed as though it wasn’t as “smooth” as Facebook.
It was almost like they rushed it out of production. As a community manager in an online marketing firm, I am responsible for posting on clients Google+ pages. Each post is designed to be engaging and to provoke feedback. However, even with a decent amount of fans we are still not seeing much of a response. Nobody uses it.
As a social media platform, it is an epic fail.
However, as far as SEO goes Google+ has greatly influenced the results of its searches.
