Tapping Into Search Results to Find Top Google+ People on Any Topic
#protip #search #interests #circles

On Sunday, I shared a quick way to tap into search to find people to add to circles with similar interests. (http://goo.gl/0G1S6) As that proved useful, I thought I’d share another way to fill your circles with interesting people and subject experts. You probably know you can show people and pages on Google+ in search - but you can add them to circles right from those results, as you can in search results from Google.com.

To see top accounts on Google+ on specific topics, search for any topic, and click “View All” next to People and Pages. This is a really quick way to find active users in the community who are interested in the same things you are.

A quick ten examples:

Music: https://plus.google.com/u/0/s/Music/people
Sports: https://plus.google.com/u/0/s/Sports/people
Knitting: https://plus.google.com/u/0/s/Knitting/people
Blogging: https://plus.google.com/u/0/s/blogging/people
Android: https://plus.google.com/u/0/s/Android/people

Politics: https://plus.google.com/u/0/s/Politics/people
Movies: https://plus.google.com/u/0/s/Movies/people
New York: https://plus.google.com/u/0/s/New%20York/people
Photography: https://plus.google.com/u/0/s/Photography/people
Google: https://plus.google.com/u/0/s/Google/people

Enter any topic you like, check out the people and pages in results, and add them to your circles. It’s that easy. Let me know if you’ve found some great people in circles this way and what you searched for.
