NEW YORK (MainStreet) -- Your business has a Facebook page, you've finally gotten the hang of tweeting and now comes another social media site your business must have a presence on: Google+. You're probably wondering, among other things, when you'll have time to monitor all these sites.It may be true Google's ( GOOG - Get Report) social media site, which is sort of a combination of Facebook and Twitter, seems unnecessary, especially since the site hasn't gotten much traction with users. But experts say now is the time for businesses to get comfortable with using Google+, because it will become an important piece of the search puzzle.
|Google+ hasn't exactly caught on with users. You should be on it anyway, digital media expert Jason Hennessey warns.|
But not a lot of consumers are even on it yet. Why should a small business be so proactive now?Hennessey: On a business level, the whole reason why businesses are even using Google is so they can get targeted customers to find their business when they search. Google accounts for 80% of that
Twitter and become a fan on Facebook.
