Create a Google+ Page for Your Business
Google+ is an ideal social platform for businesses as it gives users the ability to list their business in every city where they have a location, and appear in the Google Maps section of page 1 in local search results for those locations in a few keyword categories. Utilizing Google+ for your business is helpful to build page-ranking within the search engine itself, and all blogs, posts, articles and press releases you post appear quickly and favorably in local organic search results for many of your product keywords.
