Sharing your blog posts on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and even Tumblr can help your content gain significant exposure.
But each social media platform is distinct with different benefits and abilities. You need a simple process to tailor your social sharing to generate as much engagement as you can on each of these platforms.
With new enhancements from Google+, you can more easily accomplish just that!
One of the biggest changes recently rolled out by Google might even be called a seismic shift in search.
Google is somewhat clumsily calling it “Search, plus Your World.” You see, Google has years of experience in the search engine business. And they are so good because they aim to deliver what people are looking for, not just what they actually enter into the search window. They have to figure out if your search on “porter” is supposed to show a lot of beer websites or websites focusing on people who carry luggage.
Part of what they’ve learned is that people want to see results based on their own personal history and social profile.
Google’s Search, Plus Your World
Google+ is growing at an impressive rate. In less than one year, Google has reached over 90 million registered users—far exceeding expected growth rates.
There’s No Leap of Faith With Google+
You already know Google is important to your business. Just check your analytics. Which search engine are people using to find your website? Google. And if you’re using YouTube effectively, chances are YouTube is driving traffic to your site too. News flash: Google owns YouTube.
This article will explain why Google+ should be considered and show you how to get started.
Google+ has quickly become a rival social network to Facebook.
People who like Google+ say they like the clean, non-cluttered presentation of their information. They like how easy Google makes it to protect their privacy. (It may not be any less invasive than Facebook, but at least Google makes it seem easy to get back all of your information.)
Google+ has had a growth rate much faster than that of Facebook or Twitter. More importantly, where Facebook and Twitter try to get you to be on their site, many millions of people are already on Google’s sites: Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs, Google Reader and YouTube to name a few.
As Google’s latest foray into social media, Google+ has brought some new tools to the digital table. My personal favorite is Hangouts.
Google describes Hangouts as a “front porch.”
Anyone can drop in and say “hi” just like anyone could drop by when you’re on your porch.
