See...and this is one of the reasons I can't make the Google+ leap, they don't give without asking for something in return. Yes, I want my custom URL, but do I really and truly have to give you my cell phone number to get it? Argh!

+Karen Marsh   There is an initial investment of time. Hints: Join some communities of personal interest and business interest. Watch the active people and jump in at some point. Find people you think have their act together and study their profiles. Alternatively, find the Google+ power users and study them. Google+ is really different than other platforms, but I think in a better way. I've met some really cool people both in and out of my industry.

I really enjoyed "Power of Habit." Since reading it, I've replaced my old habit of staying up on the later side with a new habit of going to bed early so I can get up at 5am 3-4 days per week to exercise.

Studying algorithms in the 1st grade and Boolean logic by age of 16? Wow. Concerns about the need for ethics courses to go along with these coding study paths are interesting.

Here I am again, at Internet Summit, listening to the message of "You better be on Google+," which makes sense, but me oh my, I can't seem to make the leap and stick with it for any period of time. #isum13

At last year's Internet Summit, many of the speakers said, "You gotta be on Google+. You just gotta." I'm trying. But where is everyone else? #isum12.

Definite advantage for Google over Bing in social search approaches, assuming users dig having social search results served up to them automatically.

Introduction
Fascinated by the convergence of social media and SEO, I'm currently very interested in "social search" and the concept that the #1 goal for all content marketers now is to create content that is shareable.
