Google+ isn’t so much a social media platform like Twitter and Facebook, but an identity platform that works with Google to connect across all our different devices and web services. Following are some google plus tips that you can try to boost up your blog or website and get alot traffic by using these tips. These tips from different experts helped me so i am sharing all of those tips with you as well.
1. Tag people
David Iwanow said that one of his best tips is to “… tag people who created or originally shared the content when you can.” This ensures they see your post and will often lead to them interacting with you as a result. Any time you tag someone they get a notification (unless they have them turned off) so it’s a good way to get in front of people.
2. Use the rel=author tag on your guest posts
Thanh Pham Tip: Just like you did on your blog, you can also set this up on guest posts in your little bio section. Not every website will let you do this but most are now getting into the idea. This is a fantastic idea because it associates your name with some really big blogs.
3. Post valuable content on Community pages
Thanh Pham Tip: This is something a lot of G+ users really don’t understand. You don’t get a lot of traction from just posting “public” unless you already have a lot of followers. What you need to do is find relevant communities and share content there. They are full of people interested in your topics. This helps you tap into group of people that might otherwise never know you existed.
4. If something is popular on Twitter and Facebook, cross post it to G+
Thanh Pham Tip: Another tip by Thanh Pham here. I’m not sure I entirely agree with this because sometimes people will get sick of seeing your content three times if they are following you on all platforms. Maybe just use this one sparingly. Personally, I try to something a little bit different around the place because I want to avoid making people feel like I’m just syndicating my content.
5. Write long messages in G+ and then Tweet the link
Thanh Pham Tip: If you want to share a longer message on Twitter you can always write the post in G+ and then share the link to that post on Twitter. That has the dual effect of giving you more room as well as showing your Twitter peeps that you are on Google Plus as well.
6. Devote serious attention to your profile
Our friend Jimmie Lanley reckons it is extremely important to ensure your profile section is filled up with useful information so people know who you are and what you’re about. Spend a lot of time on this just like you would on your actual website About page.
7. Make your posts consistent
Probably the biggest user on Google+ is Guy Kawasaki. In his profile he has this message:
I publish approximately five-ten posts per day. The topics that I focus on are marketing, enchantment, social media, entrepreneurship, innovation, venture capital, science, and photography.
It’s a really important thing to do because it sets expectations. If you weren’t aware of this you might find his constant updates way too much to handle. But by letting us know in advance it really shifts it to being something valuable.
8. Write in bold or italic or strike
A lot of people were really excited when I shared this tip on the Google Plus community. It’s pretty basic but a very nice tip from Amy Lynn Andrews. Just *do this* for do this. Just _do this_ for do this. Good way to add some more emphasis to parts of your posts and updates.
9. Use a Chrome incognito window for multiple accounts
A lot of people have one or more Google Accounts. This means that you might not have your Google+ account assigned to the same Google Account that you use for things like Gmail or your main YouTube account. If you want to be logged in to two accounts at once you can just use Chrome’s incognito function. There are other ways to do it but I quite like the separation the two windows create.
10. Make strategic use of hashtags
Use hashtags the same way you use them in Twitter. People talk about this quite a lot but I’m still not entirely sure it’s taken off as much as it has on Twitter. But, the idea is that Google+ acts like it’s own little search engine the idea being that one day people won’t leave it at all. Hashtagging your posts helps to get them noticed.
11. Use Circles and Hangouts.
If a “Circle” means a shape and a “Hangout” means a social gathering to you, you might want to brush up on your Google lingo. These two Google+ features can be helpful for appealing to a targeted audience and establishing brand authority for your company.
