New Post: 10 Smart Tips to Leverage Google+ for Increased Web Traffic
http://moz.com/blog/google-plus-tips-seo

As Google+ becomes integrated across more platforms and services, a new and different skill set is needed from the old techniques used on Twitter and Facebook to optimize for traffic.

Points covered include:
1. Headlines, every time
2. Formatting for attention
3. Use your words
4. Use your images too
5. Smarter sharing > targeted
6. The mighty, mighty #hashtag
7. Find the followed links
8. Leverage Google+ comments
9. +Post Ads: the future of social engagement?
10. Interactive posts

Dumb posts don't succeed. Smart marketers leverage the multiple tools of the Google+ platform to reach visitors across different mediums and messages.

Keep in mind this isn't a thorough study, and these kids are 13-14 years old. However I think the trend is not limited to that age group.

I have to admit, I have been starting to lean towards this very simple thought - people just aren't on social media to buy shit. My analytics data across multiple industries and companies is lending weight to the thought. While the data used for this article is primarily last-click behavior, multi channel attribution simply can't make up enough of a difference to matter. 
It was going to change business forever. It was going to make traditional advertising irrelevant. It was going to revolutionize marketing. It was social media marketing. And it's been the biggest disappointment since the NFL ...

We have no doubt that Google+ is the future of business Social Media presence in the very close future. We believe that as soon as business sees the writing on the wall about FaceBook there will be a tidal wave of small business, non-profits, artists, photographers, professionals heading to Google with a great deal of precise local knowledge that will enhance Google+ and Google. 

This may be in part what it looks like:
Small-business owners turn to Google Plus to build their brand • http://goo.gl/4GbqZO • "A Google Plus user since early 2012, Porter also has Facebook and Twitter pages, but Google Plus is his business and brand development headquarters." 

This makes it seem inevitable:
"People don’t like Facebook. The total effect of Facebook’s features, functions and design is strongly negative. People love using Facebook because they love the other people who use Facebook. And that’s why Facebook feels like a “bubble” that’s overdue for a collapse. Facebook is suffering from a quiet abandonment. It’s quiet because most people who leave maintain their accounts and pretend to use the site for the benefit of those left behind - parents, grandparents, co-workers and so on." • http://goo.gl/Gm3N9j • Facebook Bubble Burst

This and 70 other photos spanning 15 years of photography (Getting caught up on developing film - some was lost and found) on my website : http://www.mark-potter.com 

These particular shots were with a Pentacon 66, and Zeis Jena 80mm f2.8 lens (with some fungus started), on Efke 25 in Rodinal 1+50. This is one of a set from an abandoned farmhouse I shot a few years ago. (This film sat for a few years before being developed, so it's got a bit of fogging along the lower edge as well)

Also .. I'm not sure I've ever introduced myself, but I've been a photographer since I was 12, and have kept a darkroom since I was 15. I did photography professionally for 5 years, but have since returned to my original for-fun roots. I shoot a wide variety of equipment - Digital : Nikon D3200 (old version 17-85, 35mm 1.4), Panasonic Lumix (shock\water proof) Film : Pentax ME Super (28mm 2.8, 50mm 1.2, 135mm 3.5), Leicaflex (50mm f2, 135mm f2.8), Yashica GSN, Tower rangefinder, Kiev 88 cm (80mm 2.8, 50mm f4), Polaroid Land Camera, etc. I don't collect cameras - if I don't use it I sell it and get something else.

Facebook isn't going anywhere. But small and medium businesses are at an enormous disadvantage -- it has become the playground of large brands, and that's about it.

Has anyone here seen better research on this subject? Of course Facebook has math that supports its case - but - personally I think if they don't wrangle in their advertising ways, they are opening the door to a myspace fate.

With more advertising noise in general, I think it perils the traditional organic work businesses are doing as well. With only so much timeline real estate - and paying businesses taking up more of it - I think the organics that are simply creating and sharing good content are going to lose out.

Interestingly - facebook admitted shortly after this that organic reach for liked pages was dropping significantly and encouraged those pages to pay more to promote their posts.
