Google wants “YOU!”

Do you think that Google wants “YOU!” to sign up for Google +?

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that according to industry experts, Google + posts have decreased by 41% since its invitation only launch earlier this year.  According to industry experts,  the average number of public Google+ posts per day has decreased from 0.68 between July 19th and August 20th to 0.40 between August 19th and September 14th.

Does this decline in public posts mean that Google+ is losing its momentum? Is it the new kid on the block phenomenon? Or could the labor day weekend and a general drop in searches the first week of September (for everything except back to school searches -as indicated in research using Google’s Insights tool) be the cause of the drop?

Time will tell, but in the meantime maybe now Facebook can stop trying so hard …

  1. Hey CL,

    To be honest, I wouldn’t mind at all if Google + dies down. I remember right as it was coming out SOOO many SEO’s saying “The sky is falling” and that this would change search forever!…I have yet to see that happen. I’ve seen a lot of hype and not much else.

    I use a Google account that’s tied to a company account and they haven’t opened up Google + to us yet, but I’ve goofed around with it a bit on my personal account.

    I remember when Google Wave was going to revolutionize everything too, lol. Still…gotta love Google…they come out with enough interesting/innovative products, some of them are going to stick.

    I remember the hype at the beginning when Google + first became live. So many people wanted to be invited and it was only open to a smaller amount of people. That is where they went wrong the people who joined early on became bored with Google + flaws while Facebook continued to advance.Then when everyone was free to join it was too late and hype was down.
