Google+ Tops 10 million users!

by 

Google’s latest social-networking experiment is officially 10 million users strong.

That number, which appeared earlier this week as a third-party estimate, was confirmed today by Google CEO Larry Page, who spent the first few minutes of the company’s second-quarter earnings call talking up Google+ and its features.

“I’m super excited about the amazing response to Google+ which lets you share just like in real life,” Page said in a statement ahead of the call. Page then kicked off the call by talking up the new property, saying that it’s a good representation of the kind of clean and easy to use products he wants the company to be making. Page also noted how features like circles and hangouts mimic real-life human interactions.

Google launched Google+ late last month not even in beta, letting in only a handful of users, who could later invite their friends and family. Page noted that the service remains in a “field trial” mode, and with “a lot of barriers” to use it right now, but that the company is continuing to expand how many have access to it. Page referred to the 10 million benchmark as “a great achievement” for the team that worked on the product.

Beyond raw user numbers, Page said the service has received “a ton of activity” with more than 1 billion items shared and received each day. That’s been bolstered by the +1 button, which Page said is now being served up around the Web 2.3 billion times a day.

“We want to make products that everybody uses twice a day, like their toothbrush,” Page said during the earnings call. “We certainly think about Plus that way, and just generally having a shared identity experience across Google and its products.”

Page is currently the second most followed user on the new service according to Socialstastics.com, a third-party analytics tool that’s currently tracking more than 28,000 profiles on the service. Page is second only to Facebook’s CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, who has approximately twice as many followers.

Google talks URL shorteners and SEO for social search

12 April 2011 | Author: N. Hamilton Media copywriter

Just days after Larry Page messaged Mountain View to say the firm needed to “go social” and get behind it’s Like button rival – Google +1, Matt Cutts talked URL shorteners and SEO in a bid to bring webmasters up to speed on how Google’s latest social search strategy will affect ranking signals.

In a YouTube video posted on Google’s Webmaster Help channel, Matt Cutts responded to a user question that queried whether custom URL shorteners could be seen to provide anchor text for links now that Google uses Twitter and Facebook links as ranking symbols.

Matt Cutts answered that custom URLs function like most redirects – meaning that using custom URL shorteners or keyword-rich custom URL shorteners shouldn’t negatively impact SEO.

“Custom URL shorteners are essentially just like any other redirects,” Cutts said.

“If we try to crawl a page, and we see a 301 or permanent redirect, which pretty much all well-behaved URL shorteners (like bit.ly or goo.gl) will do, if we see that 301, then that will pass PageRank to the final destination.

“So, in general, there really shouldn’t be any harm to using custom URL shorteners in your SEO. The PageRank will flow through. The anchor text will flow through, and so I wouldn’t necessarily worry about that at all.

“But just URL shorteners, as far as they relate to SEO, are not necessarily a problem at all. The vast majority of well behaved URL shorteners have good up-time and also pass page rank and anchor text because they use a 301 redirect.”

However, Cutts noted, Twitter links may be processed and ranked a little differently. The Mountain View man explained that links on Twitter’s web pages are often no-follow links and may not necessarily flow through page rank, even though they may be flagged and processed through data feeds.

Social Media Revolution (2009 Video)

This video is a must see. If there is anyone out there that still has doubt about how social media networks can help their business
should re-think their reasons. Video will re-direct you back to youtube since there are some restrictions from our friends at Sony!
