GooglePlusRead here about “Search Plus Your World”.

 

Google is now introducing a brand new search too called “Search Plus Your World”. This new tool will be fully launched this week. Right now its only used if you sign in to Google.com and searching in English. This tool combines content that you shared with the user privately together with the normal publick web in one single body of results.

Suddenly all our SEO is being mixed with privately shared content – which is content from friends and families. The user also get the option to shift between searching their personalized information and searching the public web. So the user will be able to see post, photos from their friends, profiles of friends and conversations from Google+ when they search people’s name – according to “The New York Times”.

The personalized results means that is wanna find “Henrik Sandberg Jensen” (me) and if you knew me in private it would boost your search ranking. And this is very very important for us in SEO. Now we have to tage Google+ much more serious. If you take Google+ just as serious as Facebook likes and Twitter followers you absolut need some google friends in your circles. If you have a lot of people in your circles you search ranking will tage a boost.

So now I am going to start doing Google+ much more then I thought I would. So in a couple of days you will see my icon for Google+ on theses pages for www.SeoCustomer.com.

There are some concerns about the privacy issues here. Suddenly Google makes the private content more public. Google may also get some criticism that they will favour their own content rather then the content from Twitter and Facebook and other Social Media.

Its not a new thing that Google use personalized results in the search ranking. It started in June 2005 where the web content was giving a higher ranking based on interestes, habits or behavior of the online user. This personalized results was expanded in February 2007 and in the December 2009, where the personalized results were enable also for not signed-in users to Google.

Now in January 2012 with the Search Plus World you will have personal results based on online habits and interests with social results and public search. But here it is folks – it only cover Google+ (and Picasa) not Facebook, twitter, flickr and other Social Media networks.

Check it out here in a video from Google.

 

 

Take care out there … Henrik

When we are talking SEM – we often only think of Google and Google Adwords. But remember there are more search engines where you can put your ads.

So even though Yahoo has a marketshare at around 7 to 9 precent – its still a lot of people coming there. And most of the time you can get  a much cheaper click price at the other other search engines.

Let me hear from you .. have any of you ever used Yahoo Search Marketing? Hit me a comment and show me you are alive 🙂

I am getting more and more into Xmas theses days – so I am very happy that Google is getting into Xmas mood too.

 

When you go to www.google.com try to search the words “let it snow” and wait and watch.

You will still get the search results with video and all of the old favorite song. But after some seconds something is happening. Snowflakes is falling in your browser window. Then you will frost on the Google bar.

But don’t worry you will also get a defrost button. So if you wanna start all over – click the defrost button and try again. Ho ho ho…

Yes we have all heard about Google+ right? Some of you have a Google+ account already right? I have a Google+ account. But is it really helping you in your search ranking at all?

The short answer is yes it does 🙂

 

Google has confirmed that the number of your +1 clicks really influences your position of your website in the search results.
So if you go above this article you can see a Google+1 button. So if you click it – well you have to have a Google+ account to make it work – you will help me in my ranking here. Its really that simple. You treat it the same way as with your Facebook like. Same thing. But yes – of course Google like Google+ in the ranking right.

A webpage that has many Google+ tells Google that people like that site. And so Google will show that webpage higher then the avarage ranking it would have had.

 

So what will this mean for your site?

If you haven’t got the Google+ like on your page GET IT NOW. Many websites don’t use it right now. So you will get an advantage if you add the button before your competitors.

So get the Google+ on your site NOW and get some better ranking 🙂

Best regards
Henrik

PS .. remember to like me on the Google+ botton above ..

There have been a lot of talk about the differences and benefits of do-follow links and no-follow links for search engine optimization. Of course it’s good to do-follow because you will get the link juice from one site to the other site and also because of the anchor text for keywords relevance. But what about no-follow links. The no-follow links were created by Google. The idea was that Google would not follow the link to crawl its content.

When you are using Google Adwords ads its very important to have relevant landing pages for your ad. But maybe you have 100 or 500 keywords or Adgroups. And creating so many unique pages can be a challenge. You have a life outside of Google Adwords right? But there are a lot you can do to make it work and improve the conversion rate. Many companies only have one standard landing page – and it could even be your normal homepage. Well let me tell you about this 4 step strategy.

Google Adwords is a great way to get some traffic to your website and of course reach your goals for the website. But before you start doing Google Adwords read this first. Good advices before starting doing Google Adwords. You will get a much higher result. But no more talk – ready for business?
