Leverage Google+! Behind the Scenes of Profiles & Posts

Now that we are in a G+ world and there are very few Google+ Local pages that are left in that confusing neverland that have not yet been upgraded to +  yet, I want to start focusing more on sharing articles that will help you guys leverage G+ on all levels. Not just for client rankings, but for your own marketing efforts as well.

Local Search Forum discussion started here: http://www.localsearchforum.com/google-business-pages/17038-leverage-google-behind-scenes-profiles-posts-seer.html

Google+: Looking Behind The Scenes of Profiles and Posts

I love Google+. In addition to using it for content discovery, this rapidly growing social network is an incredible tool for micro blogging, networking and relationship building.

While Google+ can effectively be used as a micro blogging platform, it lacks many of the features that give blog owners using a CMS more control of the HTML elements, tags and styling of their blog.

To help Google+ users understand what is happening behind the scenes, I’ve dug into the source code of Google+ posts and pages to show you elements that affect how your posts appear in Google+ and in Google Search. In this guide, you’ll learn what tags are added automatically and how to optimize the elements you have control over including:

☞ Titles
☞ Meta descriptions
☞ Canonical tags
☞ Alt attributes
☞ No follow attributes
☞ Rel=author
☞ Target="_blank"

I just shared this at the Local Search Forum and said it's important for all Local consultants to read for a variety of reasons.  Great job Nyag and Dan!
 
Has Google done anything to improve the spam situation since Brian Seely got all that media attention for spamming the Secret Service and FBI listings? Find out in this interview with Map Maker expert +Dan Austin.

Whoa. Google Local SERPS Map Drop - Is this a Test or a Glitch?

Was just doing research and came across something odd.

Searched for San Francisco Dentist and at 1st I thought that phrase was not pulling local results because there was no map on top right like there is whenever the pack shows. I scrolled down to investigate and saw the following. Yikes!

It makes me wonder... "Is the closest result always the better choice?"
