IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM GOOGLE!
Google is rolling out new applications since they now have a new platform; Google Caffeine. There new launch is a product called Google Social Search. This new search is important in two main ways for business owners which you need to be aware of:
If you want to watch the videos:
Business owners need to heavily promote & manage social sites such as Twitter, YouTube, Facebook,Linkedin, and others. It also means photo sharing sites such as Picasa Web Albums & Flicker are important. It also means means blogs & local search sites such as yelp and citysearch are important....SO PROMOTE SOCIAL SITES IN WEB DESIGN. sites like CJ.com are pretty obvious that they want people to follow them from their home page.
Business owners need Quality Content. Why? When you are signed into your Google account (many business owners are always signed in) Google is showing results from Social Circles in the result! How crazy is that.
That means if we get all of our clients to follow us on Twitter, or all interested business owners to connect with us on Linkedin, or people follow us on YouTube.com. THIS MEANS WHEN WE PUBLISH NEW CONTENT THEY SEE THAT CONTENT IN THE SEARCH RESULTS.
Wow? What a great way to target your target market. Google is practically telling everyone with this new addition that CONTENT is the new LINK VALUE online!
