What if I told you there was one simple task that can help you get your blog posts indexed quicker and help you draw in more eyes on your blog content?
It is actually rather simple and you can do it in only a matter of seconds. What is it?
Add a link to your blog posts in your Google + feed
That’s it – it’s that simple!
Don’t have Google +? Get it today! You are missing out and failing to fully capitalize on the impact your content can have on SEO and your overall brand exposure.
Does this simple task really work? YES! Plus it has many Benefits
It not only works – it works really well.
Google indexes virtually all links that you post on Google + – and they do it almost instantly. The benefits of doing this are significant:
- Your content gets indexed
- Your content is visible quicker
- It helps with your SEO
- It gives your more touch points in search results
- It helps you driver more traffic to your blog
- It gives you another opportunity to engage with users on social media through G+
A URL’s number of Google +1s is more highly correlated with search rankings than any other factor.
Considering how little work it actually takes to post a link on your G+ personal or company page, it is more than worth the effort.
Google shows no signs of slowing the development of Google+. And while they may not come out and say it, it’s pretty clear that they use Google + links, +1s and shares as part of their ranking algorithm.
