Google+ Dofollow links can do wonders for a company website or internet marketer. While Facebook does not provide Dofollow links, Google+ does and this is one of the main differences between the two companies. While Facebook is still an social media giant, Google+ is gaining users from among Facebooks’ ranks and the two competitors are likely to be at odds for some time to come.
Google has recently updated the way it handles searches. This update, known as the Panda update, has had a big effect on SEO and linkbuilding. The purpose of updating Google’s search algorithm is to eliminate spam websites that were getting high ratings due to « black hat » linkbuilding. The Panda update has had a major impact on article sites such as Ezine and ArticleHub; most article sites lost their ratings and have fallen drastically.
As many websites relied heavily on article submission sites to gain traffic, Google search engine update has had a major impact on the world of SEO. However, Google+ has offered yet another tool that can aid a webmaster in getting high ratings for his or her site. This tool is Google Plus’ Dofollow link. The way it works is that a person sees the website, likes it and clicks on Google+. This not only shows that a person likes the site but it also acts as a recommendation button. The Google search engine will look and see how many people have hit the « Plus » button and this will help to determine the site’s ranking. After all, if many people like a site, there must be something good to it.
Whether or not Google+ will be taken advantage of by spammers remains to be seen. Unfortunately, no matter how hard Google works to knock down spam sites and give good ranking to legitimate sites, there are always back doors that spammers can take advantage of. After all, the Google search algorithm is done by computer, not a human being. For that reason, it is likely that spammers will find some way or the other to take advantage of the Google+ Dofollow link.
For now, Google Plus’ Dofollow link is a valuable tool that will help good sites to get good search engine ratings. While Google+ and Facebook are similar in some ways, the Dofollow link is one thing that sets Google+ apart and one of the reasons why many businesses are turning to Google+ to more traffic to their websites.
