Question: Lots of talk about Google+ – what’s your take?
Question: What is the best way to get your images for your destination in Google?
Answer: Google+ is very important to search engine optimization! Why? Is it because a lot of people are using Google plus? No! It is because Google plus has a very rich and powerful daddy: Google. Google controls search and Google is using its monopoly control of search to grow the ecosystem around Google plus.
Is this ethical? Is this moral? No! But I do not create the world I just live in it. So the first take away is if you care about Google and SEO, you need to use Google+!
As for your third question, which we did not have time to answer in the class today, what is the bounce rate? The bounce rate in simple terms means immediate entrance immediate exit. Generally speaking, therefore, a higher bounce rate means that your pages are not as interesting. However many websites start out being very narrowly focused on just or customers. So they have little traffic and low bounce rates. Then as they engage and become more aggressive towards Google and search engine optimization they expand their traffic and also increased their bounce rates. So now they have lots of traffic and higher bounce rates.
So you can’t look at the bounce rate without looking at the strategy being used towards Google.
