Google+ Business Page or Brand Page ?

The easiest way to decide which is right for you, is an address.

Does your Business / Website have a Google Place (Google Map) listing?

 

Yes – Create a Google Plus Business Page

No – But i do have a trading address and would benefit from a listed address – Create a Google Plus Business Page

No – My site is a Brand, Blog, does not need an address listing – Google Plus Brand Page.

 

Log into your Google Plus Page

If you intend to use a rel=author tag on your blog posts (highly recommended) then fill in your profile properly.
