Google+ and SEO

With the launch of Google+ and Google’s introduction of personalized social search results, have come new challenges and opportunities for Search Engine Optimization.

Before Google+ was Google’s +1 button.  Now, fully integrated into Google+, this feature influences search results and can be used to help increase a pages rank in a Google search.
