Tip 7/50: Add A Large Image To Your Post
Google+ is a very visual platform where the most attractive posts demand the most attention and can be the difference between getting a +1/share and not...

All text-based posts should have an accompanying image and when sharing a link. You can also replace the default thumbnail image with a different (more attention-grabbing) image when sharing a link.

There are several benefits to attaching a large image to posts:
► Posts with images tend to get more engagement (+1's/Comments/Shares)
► Large, horizontal images have more chance of triggering larger multi-column posts (aim for high-res, 1200+ pixels wide for best chance)
► Images allow you to see how many times your posts get shown in feeds by monitoring image views (click into the image and expand the Photo details on the right-hand side) which gives you some idea as to your post reach/visibility

This tip was inspired by +Louie Baur's post here:  http://bit.ly/1khyEC9

This is just one of many Google+ tips, you can find more tips like this from the #googleplus50 series here: http://www.rickeliason.com/things-to-do-on-google-plus/

6 Proven Ways to Boost the Conversion Rates of Your Call-to-Action Buttons

Your visitors can’t get through your checkout process or signup form without clicking at least one button. And that one button — like all of your buttons — can be improved on.

But we fail to optimize calls to action for pretty simple reasons, all of which are complete BS.

We need to stop ignoring the so-called “small things,” especially when conversions depend on them.

And see if you can relate to any of these excuses for failing to optimize calls to action:

YouTube SEO includes tips on video clips and transcription.
Youtube is the second largest search engine. A lot of people are doing SEO for Google – which usually ends up with Bing and Yahoo rankings following suit. What we fail to see is that Youtube SEO can gain you far more search traffic than Yahoo and Bing does. So if you’re...

Thank you for the fantastic latte Christine! I was in your neighborhood for Loral Langemeyer's Live Out Loud program and The Bean Bar was my latte fix for 3 days.

Wow, did you know that Acupuncture could cure allergies!? I've been taking allergy pills, shots, and just staying indoors since I was in grade school. Minerva cured my allergies in one treatment in Spring 2013. I had another treatment in early spring 2014. It's amazing (sad) to watch neighbors and friends sneezy and itchy while I'm fine. I can even pull weeds, work in the garden, and have the windows open while the grass is being cut. I refer friends and family to Minerva for allergies and she fixes many more issues. I also leaned she helps kids but with a different treatment if they can't handle needles. It;s doesn't hurt thought.

Thank you for fixing up the plumbing issues at my house.Being from a plumbing family I miss having people who were always on hand to fix up little or big things. Having a plumber who I can trust and rely on is really big, in lots of ways. A+coming to the house when you said you could. A+ fixing the faucet. A+ fixing the shower. A+ going to check on my neighbor's issues. A+++ complete trust and reliability.

Dr Youm and her staff are professional and highly skilled. She did a great job on a complicated root canal. Dr Youm takes into account patient stress levels and goes on with the work in a way that reassures patient nerves while managing procedures. I would highly recommend Dr Youm for anyone seeking dental work.

Getting carpets cleaned shouldn't be a big deal- but years of kids, dogs, and parties takes a toll on the rugs and the carpets. Brent came to our house in Bellevue and took care of all the carpets the area rugs, and the stairs. I knew the DIY carpet cleaning was a bad idea and am really happy we had it done by a pro.

I learned about chiropractic care about 5 years ago. I saw Dr J for treatment and he successfully treated me for issues from a car crash that was 5 yrs earlier. Within 3 treatments he fixed 2 pain problems. Within 6 months he fixed the bigger issue. I had seen physical therapists before Dr J. They got me to 75% but the pain came back. I highly recommend Dr Jason Ablett for pain treatment. Highly regarded in the community, good staff support, and a convenient location off 405 in Kirkland/juanita. Cheers to you Dr J.

Working out with Chris and his trainers is a fitness experience. Convenient location in Redmond, great exercises, and they even modify for my skiers knee or my mother's hip issue. Small classes, 30 minute workout, and fantastic results. Thank you Chris, Jackie, Renee, etc.
