Can you tell me the value of a plus +1 for SEO?

Joshua Berg - 11:00 AM

Buying +1's, plussing your own posts, shamelessly soliciting...
If 1 + 1 = 2 it must be worth something right?

Matt Cutts explains the causes of a PageRank drop.

Joshua Berg - 2:52 AM

Purchasing links & other activities which break Google guidelines, can get your site penalized and PageRank dropped.

Question: "I use the Google Toolbar to monitor PageRank. I read on the Internet that it gives old and quite unreliable data. Can I have reliable realtime PageRank information about the sites I administer?"

Matt Cutts: "It's not unreliable, it's just rounded to a 0-10 sort of scale. So there's nothing unreliable about that necessarily."

Question: "And how can I identify causes of a PageRank drop?"
Silviot, Torino, Italy

Matt Cutts: Goes onto explain why it may drop and if you were doing something wrong, how to fix it and make a Reconsideration Request...

This link is Google Help's brief explanation of PageRank...

See Google's view of the importance of a webpage.
"Pause your cursor over the PageRank button to display the importance of the webpage you're viewing, according to Google. Webpages with a higher PageRank are more likely to appear at the top of Google search results."

G Plus Moderators Can Now Change Post Categories.

Joshua Berg - 4:31 AM

This is salvation for Google+ Community moderators!

This has got to be the best thing that's come out for communities since communities & will finally relieve many of the frustrations for moderators everywhere.

G+ Communities came with the wonderful feature of "categories", which were often of little use as the average new poster has no idea about either rocket science, or the far more complex task of choosing a category appropriate for a post.

I have recently written about the power of G+ Communities and more specifically, each category for SEO and now with the ability of moderators being able to properly categorize posts that dream can finally be realized. So moderators may want to go back and revisit this post and realize the important SEO implications here and how powerful properly sorted community streams will be:

PageRank, Link Juice & SEO for Google+ Communities.

It might be just a tad ironic how important features are often left out by developers and then introduced later to a hail of praise and gratefulness, "powerful new version", "this incredible new update." LOL. That's my cynic speaking.

Anyway seriously glad about this one, cause I was just writing some moderation stuff this week.

Google Plus PageRank and SEO - Live HOA Discussion.

Joshua Berg - 4:38 AM

Today's Google Plus PageRank and SEO, hangout was great. 
Thanks to +Ronnie Bincer inviting +Mark Traphagen and I, to talk about this important topic of Google+ SEO & PageRank.

If Google Search and authority matter to you, you're going to want to watch this show. Although there's a lot still to be covered and you can do so from reading my 5 part PageRank series, Ronnie did a good job of keeping us to the main topics & so we could cover a lot of important ground in one discussion.

Hope you enjoy it & share it!

 9 Min Overview Ver. - of our Google+ PageRank HOA yesterday. 

Great idea to condense it like this, now you can share it to all your friends & they'll actually watch it.
