For business it's all about connecting people with content that's of most interest to them! The best way to extend the reach of your content is to get it in front of people who want to see and share it.

But, how do you find those people who are influential in a given topic? Use +NOD3x! Nod3x will identify those people and businesses that are influential within a specified topic.

Follow these steps:

1. sign in with your G+ profile

2. create a new project with your topic of interest as the keyword

3. let your project run for awhile

4. check back to find your influencers 

Now it's up to you. Will you use this freely available tool to get the most out of Google+ for you and your business?

As ever, thank you +Lee Smallwood for freely giving Nod3x to our community here on Google+

Take relationship building to the next level. One of the most powerful pieces of advice I've taken has been to build genuine relationships with people. As idealistic as it may sound we are stronger together than we are alone.

To help strengthen your most important relationships here are 5 notes (real physical notes with pen and paper) that you can write:

1. Write a thank-you to someone who believed in you.

2. Write an apology to a person you let down.

3. Write a note of congratulations.

4. Write an offer to help.

5. Write an unexpected compliment.

Thanks to +Jeff Haden for these wonderful ideas.

Cool Idea. But who wears their watch on the right hand arm?
I suppose the display is programmable for either left or right.

Hate that awful color! We have a winner...thanks Google+ have a great evening.
Fun Saturday it or hate it? +Guy Kawasaki recently shared a photo of this rare Porsche Cayenne GTS in Peridot Green Metallic. Thought it'd be fun to take a poll to see if you loved the new color, hated it or couldn't decide.

Simple Directions:

1. I'll post three comments
2. I'll turn commenting off
3. You +1 the comment that best describes how you feel
4. Share with your friends
5. Bonus: grab the link to this original post and share that with your share, turning comments off so we get a larger sample

At the end of the day I'll re-share with open comments, and we'll announce the winning sentiment. Have fun!

Who Are the Most Interesting Blokes on Google+?
Circlesplosion part 6 is underway!

During the last installment of my #circlesplosion  series, The Most Interesting Ladies on Google+, it was suggested that I should follow it up with a similar circle curation of The Most Interesting "Blokes". Well I thought that was a great idea! 

In the comments below, I'd love to hear your nominations for the most interesting men on Google+. Please don't just +mention drop. Nominees will only be taken into consideration if a thoughtful reason is given for the nomination. For example:

I nominate +martin shervington because he has the most amazing cat gifs!

Purely an example right there. ;)

Nominees must also be active on Google+ - no ghosts please! 

I will then carefully go through and add the best of the best to a circle which I will then share publicly. 

In Case You Missed the Last Installments
You can find out how #circlesplosion  started by visiting the original post here - You'll also be able to see each of the 5 past circles that were shared. 

Thank you for your help in creating some of the most highly curated circles of great Google+ users!
