Getting started on Google+? It’s a whole different look and feel and very honestly for me, it was a bit intimidating.
Because Google is the #1 search and website tool used by the world. I wondered and worried about how my content and personal life might be integrated into this platform. Turns out — it integrates a lot. For businesses and content creators – that can be a good thing!
Why is Google+ good?
To start, your content is shared and shows up in search results much easier. You have an opportunity thru Google+ to rank on page 1 of Google (the holy grail of search!) Google authorship is a great added benefit to those writing content on the internet. There are a lot of good things when working with Google and using their social platform, Google+.
In order to help out some of you who may be struggling – I found this great “cheat sheet” designed by Simon Laustsen I think it’s a great first step to help understand how you can control your posts on Google+
If you haven’t taken the time to start a Google+ profile for yourself, work with Google authorship, create a Google+ local page or even a branding page for you or your business – we can help.
However, if you want to venture into the Google+ land on your own – I highly encourage it! Start by creating a Gmail Account, move onto creating a +Profile and you’re in the game!
