#GooglePlus is not a ghost town: The massive engagement in Communities

#GooglePlus is not a ghost town: The massive engagement in Communities | Google+ ( Google Plus ) for Small Business | Scoop.it

Launched in December 2012, the communities tool has become one of the most vibrant and popular features on the Google Plus platform. Like Facebook groups, communities usually focus on a particular topic (some of the most popular communities include Science,Photographers, and Space).


Anyone can launch a community, thereby becoming a moderator, and then that person can approve other users as moderators as well. Moderators have broad administrative powers that allow them to delete posts (those that are off topic or spam), create subcategories (the Landscape Photography community has more than 10), and pin posts to the top of the page so they can gain more visibility.

Hey Google! Here's why Google+ is still a ghost town

Hey Google! Here's why Google+ is still a ghost town | Google+ ( Google Plus ) for Small Business | Scoop.it
With Google Plus, Google is building a state-of-the-art super-city in the middle of nowhere, where nobody cares to live, irrespective of whether anyone actually wants to live there. Here's what they're doing wrong.
Peg Corwin's insight:

"The only reason why Google+ exists is as a bait-and-switch trap — a honey pot — to draw the makers of online content into the clear in order to associate them with their web content and then put a Real Name with a face as a Turing Test of sorts, as a way to separate the men from the bots.

Google Announces the End of Author Photos in Search: What You Should Know

Google Announces the End of Author Photos in Search: What You Should Know | Google+ ( Google Plus ) for Small Business | Scoop.it
Many of us have been constantly advising webmasters to connect their content writers with Google authorship, and it came as a shock when John Mueller announced Google will soon drop authorship photos from regular search results. Let's examine what this means.
Peg Corwin's insight:

Why Google Authorship is still worth it:


"Even though a byline is much less visible than a photo, across the hundreds or thousands of search impressions you receive each day, those bylines can make a measurable difference in your traffic, and may improve your online visibility.
"Google continues to work on promoting authoritative authors in search results, and authorship is one of the better ways for Google to establish "identity" on the web. Google continues to make statements explaining how important identity in content is, as explained by Matt Cutts both publicly and in this rarely seen interview".
