SEO is changing and Google+ is showing how search is getting married to sharing. When I joined Twitter and Facebook I noticed my sharing habits and saw myself first conversing with fellow followers and then sharing some articles I enjoyed. It’s a natural, obvious occurrence, we socialize and share.
Looking at Google+, I see a new dynamic. We are starting from a search first perspective.
