It is illegal to copy someone else's written work without their permission. You should also check the terms and conditions of the social network in question as well, because they may also have clauses where they retain some rights of what users post. Furthermore, search engines typically frown upon content that is copied straight from other pages and rank ...

You can do social media share buttons without using JavaScript that would allow the sites to track your users. All the sites support links for sharing content. For this to work you need to be able to URL encode some information about your page to insert into links: URL: http://example.com/mypage.html -> http%3A%2F%2example.com%2Fmypage.html TITLE: My Page ...

You can either edit your image, like bybe says, or you can tell Facebook and Google Plus which image to use by using the Open Graph Protocol. If you create a new image and add it to the meta property="og:image"-tag, they should use that image when people share one of your pages. If you use this, you won't run the risk of Facebook or Google using the wrong ...

Here is a forum that discusses this question. User "adriver38" asked this question to Google and got the following response: (emphasis addid) You can create a new Places Page for your new restaurant location by selecting "add another business" within your Google Places dashboard. The new page will take a couple of weeks to show up in ...

No, don't give your Google passwords to anyone. Pretty much every Google business tool should allow you to delegate access to additional Google accounts. Here are support pages for adding users to several Google services. Google Analytics Google My Business/Google+ pages Google Webmaster Tools

It's no big secret that Google loves to use algorithms and crazy hard mathematical equations for its return of search results, in both organic and local results. This is no different when Google computes its review average. MEAN (Average) The issue here isn't the fact that Google is returning an incorrect review average, the problem is that you are ...

This subject has a great deal of misinformation surrounding it, partly due to the rather vague documentation by Google. There are very many articles about using Google+ authorship for business, but amazingly none of them have this critical piece of information. After having searched extensively for the answer to this myself for quite some time, and ...

Google has removed the help pages about the +1 reports in Google Webmaster Tools. This indicates to me that the feature is gone for good. There are still some vestiges in the help section, but which contain lots of broken links: +1 Reports provides insight into the effects of the Google +1 button on your site's traffic. Data is available for Search ...

+1'ing a Google+ page and adding a Google+ page to a circle are two different actions. Currently +1'ing a page will not show that pages content in the stream of the user. If you want users to see a page's content in their stream, you will have to use the follow button or the combined follow/+1 profile badge.

You should merge the Google+ and Google Local pages - this is the norm now and what Google has even started doing automatically (albeit, it's a bit of a mess in true Google fashion). This is a business that has a merged page/local profile for example. Thus only requiring one link to website with verification. The automatic process that Google has started ...

PNG Transparency This is happening because your logo is a transparent PNG file which is normally fine but because your logo is white it will clash with Google Plus as they use a white background. A simple fix to this solution is to edit your PNG file and give it a solid background color the same of your elements on the website, in this case a background of #...

At one time, you were able to get DoFollow links from Google Plus. However, that has since been "fixed" and nofollow has been implemented on all external links. For the past four or five years, the term "Social Signals" has been used to describe links/likes/shares from social networking websites. It is believed that these social signals can have an impact on ...

Is there any downside to registering a Facebook page custom URL or Google Plus custom URL? No, this will help users more readily identify links and increase their likelihood of clicking on them. Is there a risk of these social media custom URLs competing with my own domain's website and cannibalizing my own traffic? Not likely, the domain would ...

Officially, they don't affect organic search rankings although plenty of research, study and others in the industry have noticed greater visibility for pages that do have shares / +1's on Google+.

What and where! Google uses a local algorithm that is clever 'most of the time'. It understands what users type into Google Search when they are looking for local services such as Plumbers, Cinemas and Bowling Allys as a good example. It normally associates what and where, it can also associate other words such as in around more specific locations and ...

You appear to have a second, very similar g+ page, I found this by searching for the company's name and address and restricting the search to plus.google.com http://plus.google.com/116517652696883112626/ It seems that google may have picked up that both pages had the same address, website name, etc, and suspended the newer one as a result. Neither page has ...

When sharing on Google Plus, Google will only use Schema if no The Open Graph protocol (OGP) is detected. In the event that no Schema or OGP is found then Google Plus will revert to the normal meta data that is used for ranking on Google Search. Obviously if none of these are found then Google will scrap text what it thinks is more ideal. OGP is the ...

A Google+ Page can help you with SEO, but the impact is going to be minimal, if any at all. The Google My Business page is a must for local search. However, they are two different things, as much as Google still tries to pretend they're not. Gone are the days of Google+ being a must have. Back when it was supposed to be Google's little "Facebook killer," ...

Google+ Google+ pages only offer rel="nofollow" links to external web pages, which means that, generally, these links will have no impact on page ranking. You can read about how popular search engines handle this attribute here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nofollow#Interpretation_by_the_individual_search_engines It appears that the main SEO benefit one ...

PageRank alone != SEO. Google attempt to rank by relevance, and PageRank is a single signal of that. Google rarely reveal all the signals they use to rank a site, but the fact they own all Google Plus' data, would mean I would find it would be odd for them not to mine it to help improve their search results. A popular site will be +1d, retweeted and liked ...

Your og:url tag is currently: <meta property="og:url" content="http://prodct.info/chromebooks/" /> Should it not be the unique URL of the page? Be sure to test any changes with Webmaster's Structured Data Testing Tool Description of og:url: The canonical URL of your object that will be used as its permanent ID in the graph.

Upon further investigation, it seems like a bug with Google plus. http://searchengineland.com/google-loses-real-estate-search-brand-boxes-dropped-logged-users-203567

having rel publisher tags does not guarantee google will show the brand associated with the Google+ brand page. Few things you want to check. 1. Make sure you have not recently chosen and new URL for your google+ page (changing from # to something custom). 2. Make sure that this is happening when you request the raw page. Actually type the full url in ...

Google+ doesn't hotlink images. It fetches images directly from Google's servers and services cached versions to users so I doubt there will be a referrer. You might try whitelisting user-agents that contain Google.

If you have two physical locations for your business there's no reason you couldn't have two G+ pages, each linked to the (domain?) for that business. If you have a single domain with two unique pages for each location. Think of those as author pages on a blog where each author page is linked to it's own G+ page. Do you have unique domains, or two unique ...

If you had example.blogspot.com and it is now at blog.example.com, it will take some time for Google to update it's index for the new URLs. Some of the posts will be updated in days, some will take a few weeks.

I believe it's a combination of the page having a verified name and URL.
