Google+ and Search Engine Optimization: An Interview with Janet Driscoll Miller

The marketing department recently sent me out with a Flip Mino in hand to interview some of the great speakers at the conferences I was speaking at.

Here is the first of 4 interviews I conducted with Janet Driscoll Miller, President and CEO of Search Mojo, who gives some insights into Google+  and its implications for organic Google search rankings.

Get the low down on:

  • How Google+ can affect your website’s organic rankings
  • Recommendations on administering Google+ for search
  • Insights on the “social search environment” and how it will evolve


Stay tuned for more interviews in the coming weeks as my foray as a journalist continues…

    Thanks Chris!
    Excellent video, i was totally neglecting G+ for SEO, now i changed my mind.

    • @chrisgoward

      All indications that I've seen say that G+ will help for local search, and certainly won't hurt. Google is emphasizing G+ for local listings. Check this out:

      If anyone else has other insights on this, feel free to chime in.
