How to Embed HOA Videos on Your Website (NEW)
The Hangouts man himself, +Ronnie Bincer, it starting to blog more, which makes me happy.
Here is a handy tip for your HOAs to gain legs and move to your website...enjoy!
How to Embed HOA Videos on Your Website
You work hard to make your Hangout on Air (HOA) broadcasts worth watching... why not use them to drive traffic to your website?

People watching videos on your website increases 'time on site' - a good factor to improve your website's ranking. And when visitors stay on your site, there is a better chance they'll look around and find more of the things you want them to find there!

Check out the detailed steps in the linked article for locating the HOA video embed code so you can easily include your HOA videos right on your site. We cover multiple ways to find the embed code no matter which method you used to create your Hangout on Air broadcast.

One Embed Code, 3 Uses
It is the same video embed code that is used to display the pre-show countdown (pictured here) as well as the live broadcast and the recorded version of the show... all depending on when the viewer clicks the play arrow.

I've even shared a little known tip that makes it easier to modify the HOA video embed code for the next video you want added to your site.

Get More Mileage from your HOA Videos
Not everyone watches your Hangouts on Air live so get some extra value from your HOAs by adding them to your website so they can 'live on' well into the future.

Here's the direct link to the article:

Learn how to find the code and embed HOA videos on your website. Hangouts on Air broadcasts automatically make videos which can be embedded on your website.

AR and VR headset. (QUICK VIDEO)
Ping +James Dearsley, and one for you +Gideon Rosenblatt and +David Amerland

Thanks for the ping +martin shervington there is such a move in the #VR  space - not to mention the world of Haptic Feedback which adds that extra dimension. Virtual Reality tricks the eyes, earphones will trick the ears but it is only know that devices like this are starting to trick that little sense known as touch. There are a few that are integrating with the Microsoft Kinect and producing interesting results. Its the future.....interested in +Gideon Rosenblatt and +David Amerland's opinions here too.....

3 years ago to the day I decided to give this Google+ thing a go. I had no idea what I would learn or where it would take me. And now we are here.
I was going to write a long thank you note to everyone, waxing lyrically on what I'd learned, and who I'd had the honour of meeting. With over 1000 days, and probably 10,000+ hours of being here I didn't know where to start. Put simply, it continues to be quite a ride. 
Have an amazing Friday and here is to the next wave, unexpected dolphins and all.

Social Media Marketing and the Power of Google Plus. (BLOG)
The real power is in the relationships and the connections you make on here...

Almost a year ago I was at the Social Media Marketing World conference, this post tells the story. Including the creation of SuperGPlusto too. 

#socialmediamarketing   #socialmedia  
If you are keen to use social media for marketing then Google+ will connect you to the right people with whom you want to build relationships.

What you got planned for today then? :D
This is a shot I am quite fond of. First of all its in a stunning location on top of Sutton Bank and the path to Sneck Yate. I chose the composition as I liked the path leading through the open gate (which was also lit by the setting sun) and in to the distance. I'm on a role at the moment with the North York Moors and enjoying sharing the images i have shot over the last few years. I will then move on to other areas of Britain including the Lakes,Yorkshire Dales,Wales,Scotland and many other areas. So keep an eye out for my posts.

The Most Important Content Marketing Skill and How to Master It
by +Barry Feldman 

You’ll need a number of skills to master content marketing. The most important of them is teaching.

In an effort to explore the topic further, I pecked my way around the web, digging up insights from a variety of experts qualified to opine on the qualities of the best teachers.

I wasn’t surprised to find a number of the themes my kids hit on re-emerge—especially humor, interaction, and unpredictability. It’s kind of a lesson within this lesson: Want to know what works best? Ask your #audience.
