GooglePlus is in the hashtag business. I posted an article, “Hashtags not just for Twitter” a couple of months ago and since then I have been using them a lot more on different social media sites. What I did not know is how Google is really accepting the use of hashtags, not only in GooglePlus posts.
I think #hashtags are the one common denominator that can connect our story across different #socialmedia platforms. It is the “new connecting shortcode”
Try this little test. Instead of typing in a key word search, try typing in a hashtag search for #socialmedia or #onlinemarketing or #contentmarketing.
Try your own tests and see how Google Authorship is really the next critical step to being found on Google
