I am the co-founder of a company called Steady Demand. We are solely focused on Business Brand Page Management on Google+. To put it simply, we do all the heavy lifting, writing, engagement, developing quality followers and we stay up to speed on social and search so you can focus on what you do best -- growing your business.
( We also educate you along the way ) - Check out this free tool we created to help you check your connection from your G+ business brand page to your website. The tool will also grade your posts and teach you how to make them the best they can be.
We started Steady Demand after a few of our consulting clients came to us and started asking for help with manual penalties. We saw the coming of semantic search ( Hummingbird ) Social Signals and the convergence of Social and SEO a while ago, so we decided to apply Google+ and experiment with how we can help companies rank better naturally.
Using a combination of relationship building, thought leadership and the creation of great content, we will work with you ( as a partner ) to help you meet your business objectives.
The circles I would recommend to putting me in:
- Google Plus Educators
- Internet Marketing and Strategy
- Google Plus for Business

I personally like YouTube streaming more.
You know GMB insights really is bad, the data Google provides at the post level is just wrong. In one case showing 23 +1's over a 90 day period when there is clearly over 200 in the last 30 days.
Why o' why would Google put out such a horrible product reporting piece (insights) if the data was incorrect.
This hurts a business, why? Simple, if you cannot trust the data integrity of a platform, why invest time and resources into it?

I can understand lag time for server migration or glitches in the system but this was different.
Views are views either they go up or are zero & the previous days stats are carried over.
I've seen zero days too btw: which is impossible since there are a number of comments plus ones & reshares on the same day. I know nothing is perfect but come on this is happening a few times a week & this latest phenomena of views being negative just doesn't add up.
So...in your view, what's going on? Any ideas?
It's one of those things like a good mystery that can't be left alone until you can get to the bottom of it.
Thanks in advance
If you're one of the many people sad to see Hangouts On Air disappear, then you might want to read this full walkthrough of how to create a Live Event, which essentially (for now) is the same thing as a Hangout On Air with a handful of added options that you didn't previously have access to.
Personally, I'm sad to see them go, but always knew that the future home of HOA was going to be on YouTube. It just made sense.
And although I watched it blossom with the likes of (the first Google+ Rock Star) and bring up a new breed of shining show hosts (like , , , , and many more) we knew it could always be more than it was. We had some great memories, and those will always stay with us.
As HOA move to its new home as YouTube Live events, my hope is that not only will it begin improving (again) but it will also branch out into a mobile app (they've announced it's in a testing phase already) and eventually empower content creators even more than we dreamed of previously.

Will you be Doing the Duo?
To get started, all you need is your phone number and you’ll be able to reach people in your phone’s contacts list. No separate account is required, so you can sign up in just a few steps. From there, you can instantly begin a video call with a single tap.
It should be fast and reliable:
Call quality adjusts to changing network conditions to keep you connected — when bandwidth is limited, Duo will gracefully reduce the resolution to keep the call going smoothly. For video calls on the go, Duo will switch between Wi-Fi and cellular data automatically without dropping your call.
And all Duo calls are end-to-end encrypted.
Note that this does not replace Hangouts video calls:
> there is no desktop version
> there is no group calling
> there is no screen-sharing or other advanced features
Get the app for Android or iOS, rolling out over the next few days.
More information on the official Google blog:
Google+ search now returns a bigger set of Collections that are relevant to your searches and interests, via improved topicality search. For instance, searching for "Bird photos" today surfaces a wider set of Collections that are topically relevant but may not have those specific words in their name.
As always, please send us your ideas/issues using our Send Feedback menu item as that's the best way to ensure we'll see them. Thanks~
Being able to see the difference in branded search terms is big news for brands. (If the data is accurate)
Also being able to see how many find you via search or maps.
The new interface has been missing the group chat feature ever since they launched the new interface on desktop.
Well it looks like it is now back and with a very elegant look and feel.
