    - Create and Verify listing in Google Plus. Listing should include Images, Description, Address, Phone Number, Payment options, operating hours etc.
    - Create Google Author Profile and link this to website.
    - Create citations in directories like yp.com, Judysbook.com, Kudzu.com etc. These sites help business to rank high in Google Maps on targeted keywords.
    - Some positive reviews for business help customers to know the reliability of your business. It's good to post some reviews in websites like sitejabber.com.

    Here are more useful tips:

    1 Claim Google Authorship with your personal Google+ profile;
    2 Make a direct connection between your business and your Google + page. The Google+ badge will help you link your Google+ page to your website.
    3. Use circles. Don't send all your updates to all your subscribers at once. Divide all your audience into circles and send specific updates to specific people. For example, if you want to reward your current clients with a special promotion, type in your copy and choose the "Clients" circle.
    4. Utilize tags, different fonts;
    5. Use Google+ as a tool for visual marketing.
    6. Host Google+ hangouts.
    7. Joint interesting communities and be active there; create and develop your own Google+ communities.

    Use hashtags when necessary on Google +

    If you have a business page, get it verified
    ASAP so that your local SEO placement is
    on point. If you plan on using Buffer to
    syndicate your content, you can only
    add G+ pages (not personal profiles).

    First of all the word you were looking for instead of "more good" would be "better"... second, if you are asking if it is better you need to state what you are comparing it to. For example, "Is google+ better than facebook? Even then you need to define what defines better or ask specific questions like "Does google+ handle video chatting better than facebook?"

    On Google+, you have the unique opportunity to build a community of like minded people who love your product/niche. Talk to your fans/followers and those in your circles as if they are real people, not potential customers or someone who will just click through on your links. Take time to ask questions, ask for feedback, respond to comments. Find out what is important to these people and then tailor all your future status updates/posts/pages around those themes. Don't assume you know what your reader wants, you have to ask. In this way, you can leave the guess work at the door and get down to the heart of what they really need.
