    Now that everything is integrated with Google+, it's not just about ranking. It's about engagement.

    I noticed that Lockhart Smokehouse BBQ had their Google+ page connected to YouTube, but Wheeling Island didn't. Also Wheeling Island could have added more categories. All in all a great article to make sure we are focused on the details.

    Things I make sure to do for every client:
    • maximize relevant categories
    • add full description, sometimes with links to internal pages
    • add hours
    • add quality logo and cover
    • link to YouTube


    I never thought to add links to social media in the description, as Big Mill Bed & Breakfast does.

    I have verified links to website on some, but I now am going to push harder to do that for everyone.

    Good thread.
