Can we live without G+?

by FingerPicker 10 replies
Hey Warriors!

I am working out a new site and for this one I want to be anonymous. Although this is for legitimate reasons, Google + won't allow anonymous accounts.

Do you think it works out well for beginners if we don't use G+ as a social media?

Thanks!

    Google+ is one of the (if not the most) important social network nowadays, especially when it comes to SEO.

    After that, it all depends on what you're selling.
    If you run a B2B Business, Google+ is somewhat mandatory.

    I invite you to read this blog post by Neil Patel: Why Your Business Ought to Use Google Plus

    This might convince you to open up a Google+ account.

    I won't recommend staying anonymous.

      G+ as popular as Facebook?? Not even close. G+ is a fraction of Facebook. The only thing about G+ is that it shows up on Google search results where Facebook normally does not. But as for popularity, users, interaction, networking .. G+ is a pale shadow of Facebook. Numbers do not lie.

        Interested to hear your opinion about this related to the question, do you think it's worth it?

    Hmmm, you guys actually really helped. I'm reconsidering my idea to do the website anonymously pretty hard. I think I will actually go with G+. Thanks a lot!

    G+ isn't important unless you want to game Google SERPs which is what I do.

    I recommend you to go with both coz google plus will help you in SEO thing and without having a Facebook fan page you are missing out a chance to create a marketing perception among your web audience. Good Luck with your project

      Managing without something will make you better at using what you have! G+ isn't the be all and end all, in fact no ONE single social site is.

      Best of luck!

    I use G+ and especially the communities in there because all those people are really targeted and engaged with their topic. And why not using when you have the chance too?
