Have you claimed your business on Google+?

Are you active on Google+?! It’s the newest “social” site allowing photos, links, discussion… What’s really has my attention: you to talk directly to Google!

Thoughts?

Yep, I like it. Much easier to target your area and influence search personalization.

The learning curve is fairly steep, but it's a powerful tool.

Yep - agreed! We just received out "vanity" url so hopefully being easier to find will encourage more to make the leap over to G+.

And use that to lead people to your own site. No need to let Google keep all of your traffic.
