Over the next 10 months, Google will phase out of Google+. Google’s decision follows a history of low usage and engagement. Google+ will remain active for enterprise customers who use it to facilitate conversation among co-workers. Now focusing on a “secure corporate social network”, Google+ will roll out new features for that use.
Though Google+ is phasing out, Google My Business has expanded displayed features for businesses such as business description, services, bookings, messaging, and the ability to post as you would have done with Google+. Though similar to Google+ posts, some ways the post feature is different is that it does not show regularly after seven days and it incorporates a call-to-action button.

We mentioned in our previous post in February that Google would begin marking http sites as “Not Secure”. Yesterday, it became official. Google began showing “Not Secure” to the left of the web address in the URL. Where it previously would have shown: “http://example.com”, it now shows “Not Secure | http://example.com.” This can not only hurt where your website shows up in Google’s search engine results (SEO ranking), but it will also hurt the confidence of visitors to your site when they see that warning.
Google recently announced that beginning in July 2018, Google Chrome will begin to mark sites that have not implemented SSL as “not secure”. Anyone visiting these unsecure sites will see a warning that the site is not secure. You can imagine the negative affect this could have on visitors to your website! Continue reading

Incorporating your blog with social media drives clicks, improves rankings, and enriches your potential clients with useful information. Continue reading
