TV brands quick to join Google Plus pages

Google launched business pages Monday, and it didn’t take long for the major TV brands — and a handful of local TV stations — to create their own Google+ pages. Here at Lost Remote headquarters, we’ve created our own, adding the G+ button “follow” button throughout. (Here’s how. It’s a static button for now, but Google says one-click follow buttons are coming in the next few days.)

We’ve started pulling together a circle of all the TV brands on Google+ right here — ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, CNN, Fox News are all there — and we could use your help. Please add your brand in comments (over on G+ or right here) so we can make sure we’ve added you.

Why go to the trouble of creating a G+ page? Google is making a compelling case based on SEO. Each G+ brand page has a +1 button, and if you’ve linked your website with your G+ page, all those +1s will positively impact your SEO ranking in Google. How much? Who knows, but it will be interesting to find out.

Remember, when you create a page, you can only create one administrator account to publish on the page (for now.) That means you’ll need to share access across your staff if you’re not the only one running it.
