About a month ago I created a Google+ Page for Engineering Solutions. We titled the page “Horizontal Well Design” and started to post some activity and blog posts on the page. See the page below:
Google + Page Success
It has been interesting to see what Google has done with their search results, in particular, their Google+ Page results. Despite the fact that we started this website 6 months ago, and have posted 40 blog posts, our new Google+ page actually ranked higher for the keyword “Horizontal Well Design” on Google. As you can see our page is #6 currently, and moving up.
It is interesting that 4 of the 5 results above us on Google are PDF files. Why is that? Doesn’t Google like new and fresh information? A PDF does not change. It seems to me that by it’s very nature it should be ranked lower. Maybe the team at Google is working on this. If so, our Google+ page could legitimately find itself in the top 2 results for our target keyword!
