Use Google+ for your content yielding better search results

I have to make a formal apology to Google+.  In the previous blog post, I stated my opinion that, other than the "hangouts," Google+ seemed like little more than a simplified Facebook page.

But then this morning, I was curious to know the origins of Labor Day, typed "Labor Day" in the search box and I discovered an article by a dear friend regarding Labor Day getaways and it was the 3rd search result... simply and only because she shared it on Google+.

I don't know about you but that motivates me quite a bit more to utilize Google's social media tool. If you use blogger, it automatically prompts you to share with your circles.  It's nice not to have to set that up in your blog functionality and just have it "happen."
