So when Google started their social networking website: Google Plus, they were challenging Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook – with its staggering number of users and epic user engagement. No doubt, Google+ was mocked initially and many debates sparked off on how Google+ will not be able to crack the Facebook domination on the social networking scene.

But people back at Mountain view knew what they were up against, slowly but certainly, Google Plus is becoming an integral part for any internet marketer, entrepreneur and bloggers.

Here are a few ways in which Google Plus has made it tough for people to ignore them.

Google is piloting the display of author information in search results. Now whenever your site shows up on the search results, the user can see an avatar of the author as well as a link to the name of the author. You have to admit, it is pretty cool and that every blogger and every webmaster is scrambling to have these show up.

      Yeah, Google has become very stringent with its policy. Although the main reason why most Adsense accounts are being banned is because of poor content quality and fraudulent activities.
