As the newest marketing weapon in your social media arsenal, Google+ Pages provide businesses with yet another powerful opportunity to connect with fans, prospects, and customers, as well as promote content to generate new leads. But let's face it: starting a brand new social presence from scratch is kind of a pain. And without an ample following, all the time and effort you put into your presence is ultimately a waste.
To help you start getting the most out of your new Google+ business presence, here are 10 guaranteed ways to attract new Google+ Page followers.
One thing I've been particularly obsessed with recently is the SEO elements of social profiles. It began with checking out the SEO for Facebook fan pages and then onto social content. Now, it's time to take a look at the differences between the optimization of your Google+ personal profile and the new Google+ Pages.
Ok, so I've seen a lot of articles about Google+ pages, but none seemed to be complete and I wanted a fast way of understanding, using and promoting Google+ pages. So I made a slideshow to help you out faster then ever with this new Google+ pages. At the bottom of the post you'll find some interesting articles that inspired me.
This is a very long post, so I recommend after you finish the parapraph to look at the slideshow first.

Anyone can make a business page for any URL without providing proof that they somehow “own” or are associated with that URL. Potentially, that means pages can pretend to be representing a site they’re not connected with.
Verification for big brands (see below) is one way Google aims to combat any problems this might cause. Google also told me that until a Google+ page is connected to a web site (see below), pages also cannot put icons or badges up, nor will they have a chance at being shown in a Direct Connect display.
Finally, Google is now allowing businesses, brands and any non-human entity to participate in its Google+ social network, through new Google+ Pages that are launching today, promised to be available to everyone shortly.
John Blossom - +Robert Scoble very valid points, though one assumes that they will be addressed over time. My general thought is that Pages can be used as a collaborative announcement feed, much as official corporate blogs do now. In that sense the do fit in to what a public company needs to do, as a single admin account could be controlled by different people over time without having to re-establish a personal ID. In other words, a single person controlling the Pages but that person being able to change over time. I can see where in some ways a feature like Pages may in fact replace some aspects of corporate blogging, since it's a fully public feature on the Web (unlike Facebook pages that require a login) and would therefore meet the requirements of public disclosure.
