I've written a blog article for +Enigma Marketing Services on how Google+ will help to make search more social. Businesses must not miss this opportunity!

We all know that Apple is enormous. It was the biggest company in the world for parts of 2011 but who knew they could be bigger than entire global industries! Be amazed...

Why we should all spend some time back-linking after publishing a blog article.

I agree with +Danny Sullivan comments about Google+. It's true that Google has made a few mistakes along the way e.g. not capitalising on the traction it was building up in it's first month. There's also many problems with the brand pages, which you would have expected to be out of this world considering it took 5 months to launch! But...

I like the concept and what Google is trying to achieve. For businesses/marketers it would be silly to ignore Google+. Search is Google's main business and something that it's already mastered - throw social recommendations into the mix and Google is onto a winner. Once early adopter businesses start reaping the rewards of having a presence on Google+, the skeptical businesses will follow suit. Google+ in my opinion is an extension to Google's search arm. It will be a success - it's just a matter of time.
Dear Google+ -- you're dead. "Doomed" says +Farhad Manjoo. Look, I've been pretty critical of Google+. I was one of the few at launch who seemed pretty dubious. But it has been far better than I expected (and apparently far better than Google expected).

Google is also throwing everything at it. Hey journalists, have your picture next to an article if you have a Google+ icon. Hey advertisers, make a page, get more +1s to show next to your ads. Hey Google Reader users, now you share with Google Plus. And Google's only begun to drill baby drill into all the other bribes it can toss out.

Google+ isn't dead, regardless if that makes a fun, catchy attention grabbing headline. I wouldn't even say it's dying. I do at times see thing that make me think it has ebbs. Goodness knows it has a huge challenge to come anywhere near approaching Facebook's ubiquity.

But things generally have alternatives. Twitter isn't an alternative to Facebook, because Twitter is a very focused service that doesn't offer all that Facebook does (and that's no bad thing).

If you want a full fledged Portal 2.0, that's Facebook, the Yahoo of the 2010s. And if you want an alternative to Facebook -- which some people will -- that's what, mySpace? No, it's Google+, because who else will it be.

As Bing is to Google, so Google+ is to Facebook. Google+ is Facebook's Bing. It might not ever be as big, nor even rival the numbers, but being second place in a field of two can be nice.

It can especially be nice when unlike Bing, Google really doesn't have to toss away tons of money to build marketshare. No doubt, Google+ on its own would be a loss-making exercise right now. But as it helps Google shore up its weak social graph defenses, it'll probably prove well worth whatever's being spent -- even if it stays in second place.
