Does Google Plus Business affect search traffic?

I have seen many Blogger including their Blog in Google Plus Business listing. After getting listed it shows extra business information box at the right side of Google search engine.

But my question is… are they narrowing the path for international search traffic? As far as I know Business listing is good for Local search and traffic. But if Blogger register their blog in Google business listing then are they going to receive traffic from other Geo location or not?


Thanks in advance.

Hi @Rabbi K


The business listing appears locally in Maps and Search, but if you use the social element of the business page, it appears publicly and globally, it does drive traffic.


This is mine from Analytics for last month.

If you use other social media, you can just cross post. Nothing to lose really
