Looks like Google SERPS (especially "local") is set to change again.... Look out for it in the UK in the next month or so.

What Creates Engagement on Google+?

Check out our new study in which +Eric Enge examines over 32,000 Google+ posts to tease out the factors that seem to most affect engagement.

He also does an interesting comparison to +Stone Temple Consulting's earlier study of Twitter engagement factors. One tidbit: posts on Google+ are 22 times more likely to get a reply than tweets!
We studied over 33K Google+ posts to see what post features caused the most engagement.

It's all about "micro-moments" - making the web ..... immediate, relevant and meeting the needs of your customers in "that moment".
Want-to-know moments. Want-to-go moments. Want-to-do moments. Want-to-buy moments. They're all micro-moments, and they’re the new battleground for brands.

Story
Tagline
I'm MD of Key Multimedia, a digital agency in Dorchester, Dorset
Introduction
I'm the MD of Key Multimedia Ltd,where we develop websites and run SEO and Social Media campaigns for clients. I regular run seminars and workshops on web-related topics and write the odd Journal piece. I have a cracking team behind me at KM. My ever patient missus, Carol and two beautiful girls offer inspiration and grounding. If the wind is up you will probably find me down the beach Windsurfing, trying to keep up with the latest freestyle moves. Or out putting the miles in on my road or mountain bike.
