Google + is more than just another social media platform! If you haven’t created a Google + account, you need to do that now. Promoting your blog posts on Google + allows you to come up in the search engines quicker and on a regular basis. Just like Facebook, you can have a personal and fan page.  Below you will find several tips that will help you use Google + more effectively.

Tips on Using Google +

A few weeks ago I was browsing my G+ feed as is usual for my “morning ritual” and thought it a great idea to share some of the things I had learnt about G+ as I see so many bloggers in the various communities I am apart of, asking and struggling with G+.

I’ve been using google plus for a while now and have learned so much from how it affects my rankings in google search to the importance of communication between bloggers in the general news feed and communities.

  • I tried using Google + and it wanted my real name. No thanks.

  • I wanted to use Google + to promote my blog, but Google insists that we use our real names in our accounts, and right now I am not using it on my blog. Perhaps in the future I will put my name on my blog, but not now. So Google + is useless for me.

    Why don’t they understand that some bloggers want to be (relatively) anonymous? I think that’s the real problem that many bloggers have with Google +. When I tried to create an account, it said that if I did not use a real name they would delete my account. I was worried that they would delete my blog, too!

    Thanks for sharing the tips! Laura, I asked to join your community too. There is way too much information that needs to be shared with google plus users, it still is far fetched concept for me!

  • laura says:

    these are nice tips, but they are the ‘in general’ tips I often find the ‘this is how you do it’ bloggers sharing. Sure this gives you the general idea, but G+ is still a very unusual and foreign concept to many bloggers. We can sit here and read these little tips all day, but what I’m finding is more effective is going through, and helping bloggers set up various area of their google plus accounts one at a time. Answering questions as they come along. Doing circle share activities, and pinpointing, as well as explaining, the latest trends. This is why I created a community for bloggers and small business owners to learn and become for comfortable with G+

    If anyone would like to learn more about using Google Plus, I invite you to join.
