Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 18, 2012
Maximize Social Media LLC (http://www.maximizesocialmedia.com) will offer a free tutorial on the upcoming changes to Google Places, which was recently replaced with Google Plus Local. Maximize is a leading social media management firm that will provide commentary on how to best achieve success with Google’s new local business listing service that focuses on social media.
Business owners are invited to attend the free training event held this Thursday at 2 PM ET, 11 AM PST by registering at the following link:
Chris McLaughlin, the CEO of Maximize Social Media, was pleased to announce that his social media marketing agency was helping business owners understand what was happening with the recent changes. “Without a doubt social media has played a significant role in search engine optimization (SEO), and we’re finding that many local businesses are missing the social piece in their marketing efforts. Business owners might have a well optimized SEO campaign that fully complies with search engine best practices, but they aren’t moving up in the rankings because they simply underestimate the importance of social media.”
McLaughlin further commented that search engines place a high value on social signals. “Search engines are seeking to identify authority sites that offer original substantive content on the issues at hand. Monitoring social signals is an excellent way of determining authority and what is natural, so businesses should recognize the importance of this. We hope our webinar will go a long way toward demystifying social media and SEO and explaining why we think local businesses should pay more attention to social, especially in light of the major change coming with Google Plus Local.”
Maximize will record the webinar and will provide the recording to those registered users who are unable to attend the live event.
