Is Google + dead?

What is the optimization value, to a business, of a Google + page (beside social signals)?

Since the removal of NAP information and the classic view of G+ last year, how relevant is Google+ as a local ranking factor?

Open to discussion!

All feedback is welcome.

Thanks, A

On the 2nd of April 2019 Google+ was officially switched off and anyone clicking on your websites G+ social icon is greeted with a “Google+ is no longer available” message.

You should update the G+ link to your Google My Business Page.

Easiest way to find that is to log into your GMB Dashboard. Find the View on Maps link in either Home or Info Sections.
