This article reveals five categories of tools and apps you can employ to greatly enhance your Google+ experience.
Check this out: Thirty-six percent of brands on Google+ have seen a 100% increase in circle size in less than 3 months, according to a recent study by Simply Measured.
This is a stunning metric when one considers that there’s no Google+ advertising platform to fuel campaigns. Brands are forced to use great content to engage and can’t “pay to play” by using sponsored stories or other advertising gimmicks.

With this spike in activity, developers are scrambling to create tools to help businesses of all sizes manage, integrate and promote their Google+ communities. Below I’ve outlined some great tools to help businesses manage Google+. I’m sure this list is just the start of many innovative tools that will be created to help communities thrive on Google’s social network.
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 a relatively new platform for businesses and marketers.
While the concept of circles is a great way to keep in touch and interact directly with a specific niche, there’s one feature that doesn’t seem to get that much press, and is actually quite beneficial to businesses. It’s called Ripples.
What is Google Ripples?
Ripples is a feature that shows you interactive graphs of everyone who has shared a specific post. Ripples is only available on posts that are sent out to “Public” and only displays those who shared the post publicly.
Since the introduction of Google+, Google has been redefining how it can provide more relevant search results.
Recently Google introduced Search, Plus Your World, something I’ll call Google social search.
This new enhancement has made it essential to have a Google+ profile and/or Google+ business page.
Why? Google is highlighting Google+ content in search results.
This article will share three tips you need to know to benefit from Google social search.
By the way, if you haven’t already done so, create a Google+ page for your business. Fill out all the sections with images and top focus keywords you want to rank for in search.
We asked 12 experienced social media professionals to share their best tips on Google+ for business with you.
Here are 12 ways you can use Google+ to promote and market your business.
#1: Personalize your page URL
Carly Simon’s 70’s hit “You’re So Vain” gave vanity a bad name. But using a so-called “vanity URL” can be a smart move when it comes to your online presence.
While Facebook allows page owners to create vanity URLs of the structure facebook.com/YourName, Google does not currently do the same.
By default, Google+ page URLs look like this: https://plus.google.com/103145815507039304597/posts. It seems likely that at some point Google will allow for personalized page URLs, but until they do, there is a service that can help.
In this article I show you how to set up your Google+ page and provide examples.
If you haven’t already created a personal Google+ profile for yourself, you’ll need to do that first (you cannot simply sign up a business page from the main Google+ signup screen).
