Google Drive – File Sharing

By Bryan Wisotsky

Google recently released a file sharing platform called Google Drive which allows users to store up to 5 GB of data. Similar to Dropbox, Google Drive allows users to add files, share links to those files, and organize lots of images, videos, documents, and more. What’s different is that there’s more storage — more than double Dropbox — but it also integrates with Google Plus and Gmail. Moreover, you can work on a document or spreadsheet, within the Drive system, or create a new one.

This is yet another online file sharing system that makes collaboration with other users easier and reduces the need for large email attachments.


Google Plus is Key for SEO

Google Plus


Google recently announced that it will rank sites with Google + higher than ones without it. That means your site’s rankings could be affected if you don’t install the Google + button. Make sure not to include it on any “promotions” pages.

If you don’t have Google +, be sure to add it to your site.  Also, you’ll want to optimize your profile by including a link to your website and some posts with links to your site as well.
