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
What do I share on Google Plus?
  • Google Plus Tips
  • Google Plus Experiments
  • Google Plus News
  • Sometimes funny things and video game related stuff

Create a New YouTube Account Without G+ Page/Profile

h/t +Peggy K
New! Create a YouTube channel unconnected to Google+

New YouTube channels use the name and profile photo from your Google About Me page (

> You can still use just one name by entering a period ( . ) in the last name field

> Name changes are limited, so be sure to set the name the way you want!

> If you want to use a different name than the one you use for other Google products (like Gmail and Hangouts), select the option to use a Business or Other name. This will create a new channel connected to a Google+ Page.

This also means that if you have a YouTube channel using your personal name, you can delete your Google+ Profile without affecting your channel.

> you can only run a Hangout on Air from YouTube Live Events if you don't have a Google+ Profile

> deleting your Google+ Profile will not remove your channel's Custom URL if it is already set.

But do not delete a Google+ Page (subaccount) connected to your channel! There is not (yet) an option to disconnect a channel from a Google+ Page.

If you never connected your channel to Google+, you will need to Confirm your name in order to use all YouTube features, like commenting. When you confirm your name your channel will use your Google account name and profile photo at

Reasons to keep Google+

> if you want notifications under the bell

> if you want to claim a new custom URL for your channel

> to use a different name for your YouTube channel than you use across the rest of Google, your channel must be connected to a Google+ Page

> to have multiple managers of your YouTube channel, it must be connected to a Google+ Page

Your channel and Google+

Impact of removing Google+

Delete your Google+ Profile

Confirm your name

Did you inadvertently delete your Google+ Page and its YouTube channel? Restore it in Google My Business (

Official - Local Page Changes - What is NOT Coming Back

h/t +Linda Buquet #ns
Official Google Statement on ALL the Google Local Changes after Google+ Update - Mamta B from Google announced that the following features are no longer supported for Local pages on the new Google+ - Reviews, categories, directions, stars, photo uploads, interior photos, maps, hours, opentable/apps integration. She explains the reasoning behind the changes and a whole lot more below.

I so wish they could have announced all this up front. It would have saved so much user confusion and frustration. But I appreciate them being transparent and letting us know now, so we have something official to point confused GMB owners and managers to.

Lot's more inside and a lively discussion to follow I'm sure...

+Mike Elgan give some great insights on the new G+ design.
While most of the article is 100% dead on I do not agree with the conclusion, for the most part.

Read on to see what Mike has to say, and share your thoughts on the conclusion.

H/T +Mark Traphagen

#ns #googleplus
I have been waiting for +Mike Elgan to write an article about the new Google+. Always interesting to know his view. Of course, he has been a Google+ supporter from day 1. And I mean that as a compliment, not a drawback

Google transforms its everything-for-everyone social network into a site that does one thing really well -- connecting supernerds.

Reviews Will NOT Be Displayed On G+ Local Pages
An official word about how reviews will not be coming back to G+ Local Business pages. They will display in the knowledge graph and on Maps.

More importantly, a business can manage their reviews by visiting

If you are looking for documentation on how to get reviews from your clients, visit the Google page for help on this:

H/t +Linda Buquet
Google Official - Reviews Will Not Be Coming Back on G+ Local Pages. There has been much speculation and debate about the fate of Google+ Local pages, especially since the new Google+ update (preview) came out.

By now most of you are aware that the whole review piece (and several other important pieces) are totally missing from the G+ Local pages.

So inside the official word from Google and what you can do.

But there is lots of confusion and it's not as big of a deal as some think. So be sure to read not just the 1st post that explains everything, but also the 4th post that clears up some confusion and misconceptions about all this. Including a wise quote from +Darren Shaw.

Keep in mind reviews are not just on maps. Reviews are highlighted right in the search results - the most important place. AND in the Local Finder AND in the Knowledge Graph AND in Google Maps. Those are and have been the important places to showcase reviews and none of that has changed.  This is just one more step in the disconnecting of Google Local from Google+ that's been happening one step at a time for the past year or so.
