Google+ / Hangouts = GoogleGone

Google+ had some great SEO / SERP benefits while it lasted… but now, it’s going the way of Google Buzz – reportedly soon to get carved up (no longer positioned as a competitor to Facebook, but now to be incorporated into their other, more successful Google products).  According to two sources reported by TechCrunch

Google has apparently been reshuffling the teams that used to form the core of Google+, a group numbering between 1,000 and 1,200 employees.

TechCrunch is assuming that these employees – along with the Google Hangout team – will get reshuffled into other mobile roles, reiterating the importance of mobile for 2014, and critically in 2015.
