I have a google + pages (business page) and I was wondering if it works the way google works (let me explain)
Let's say I go into google + community and add a brand, and then they add me ( does it benefit me ? or doesn't it benefit any of us because it is like a link exchange where I link to them and they link to me and then it zero's out ? )
Would it be more beneficial for me if they added me 1 st without me adding them ? ( for example I noticed some google + page have 500 people in their circle but they have over 60,000 followers, why doesn't the company add all of those followers in their circle , is it because they are not interested in what they are doing, don't know them personally or is it because they add them it is like a link exchange and they loose all the benefit from the follow ?
In terms of points and ranking what is the most import a follow, a + 1 or a share to help me rank better ? and does the share or + 1 need to be on my google + page or can it be on some of my followers page ?
Is a brand that has lot of followers going to give me more points than an brand that doesn't have many followers or doesn't it change anything ?
Is it better if the brand that follows you is related to your google + page and website or doesn't it change anything ?
Finally, if the follow, + 1 and share are coming from a brand is it better than if it is coming from a person ?
