  1. I’m all over G+ personally but I think it can be quite difficult to get more people into the circles of business pages since you can’t just add people and get recognition like we can with Twitter. I’m definitely going to try getting into more discussions though. Also, you mention videos – I watch a lot of videos on G+ but I’ve never really thought of making my own! Thanks for the tips! :)

  2. Hey Jenni, I’d be interested to know how much traffic you’re actually getting from G+. It’s difficult trying to manage another social media profile but if there are genuine traffic opportunities then it has to go on the list

    1. Hey Sam, actually I don’t know exactly how much traffic I got from G+.
      However, besides the direct traffic from your Google+ profile, don’t forget that the number of “G+ vote” you received will affect your website rank as well. http://www.readwriteweb.com/biz/2011/07/google-plus-impact-on-seo.php

  3. thanks for this, my friend has just lost her job and is almost ready to promote her new business, i shall pass this on to her,Google+sounds brilliant, i shall have to give it some thought too

  4. Google Plus is no wonder a place for your business. It’s one of the fastest growing Social Network. What I like about G+ is their features like circle and hang-outs. It’s a good way to know people more be engage with them. G+ could help you find some people within your niche who could be your potential leads/clients for your business.

  5. I personally struggle with Google plus, and yes I understand the SEO benefits. My biggest issue is that there still aren’t a lot of people within my local niche that’s on it. Any recommendations?

  6. There are so many social networking sites, sometimes you get confused which is the best one. I know Facebook & twitter are best right now but Google+ is the child of Google and no body can ignore it. But generally it’s really difficult to ask facebook and twitter user to join Google+… as they love these plateforms and nobody likes to move on new site unless they get something exceptional. I mean Facebook has already copied almost every new thing from Google+ like circle feature and so on.

    1. Ya, maybe only time can answer this question :)

      So, what’s your top priority social network site at this time?

    2. Right now, I give more preference to Facebook and Twitter….. plus I’m also working on Google+ as well but not very aggressively s you don’t want to miss any kind of marketing opportunity for your business.

  7. Hi jenni,

    1. Talking to other people in your social profile, share useful content in your niche and you’ll see the better result.

  8. I like the helpful info you provide on your articles. I will bookmark your weblog and check again right here regularly. I am fairly certain I will learn a lot of new stuff right here! Good luck for the next!

  9. I cancelled my FB account about 2 years ago due to its dulling effect and especially because of their shady policy on giving information about their data gathering. I mean, I’m ok with FB gathering user data and all, but when they try to deny it, it comes an issue for me. Anyway, as I’ve started to try my wings on blogging it has become clear that in order to gain some success, I must join some social thingy. So, as FB is not for me (did I mention that there’s something really creepy about Mr. Suckerburger imho; now I did), I think I will go with Google+. I mean, they probably already have a ton of information about me, so giving the rest is, um, not ok but apparently somewhat necessary.
