      Hey Marion, I’ve come across the same thing so many times… a client basically just signs up for an account and then leaves it dormant, which has little or no value. With G+ becoming such a factor for ranking in Google, local businesses need to understand its value and stay active on Google+, including building up their profile/circles, as well as consistently post fresh, unique content directly to their account. This will go a long way, especially with the direction Google is heading!
