I discovered something interesting using Google+ that I wanted to share.
Earlier today, I posted an update on our Juice Marketing page on Google+. Then, out of curiosity, I did a quick search on “SEO Backlinks” using Google (the regular old search engine, without the +). Lo and behold, the brand spankin’ new G+ post was instantly picked up and displayed as the #3 search engine result … in just 17 seconds!
Here’s the proof (image below):
It’s important to note that the displayed search was indeed set (by default) to include my personal search results … so I understand that it wasn’t truly / globally the #3 search result.
But it’s interesting to me that content posted on Google+ seems to be instantly indexed and available in Google search. More evidence that social media is an increasingly important part of SEO – and perhaps a good reason that you should consider spending a bit more time on Google+.
