"As a natural continuation of this, today we'd like to announce that we're (Google Search) adjusting our indexing system to look for more HTTPS pages. Specifically, we’ll start crawling HTTPS equivalents of HTTP pages, even when the former are not linked to from any page..." - see bit.ly/1kcFPg3 for full details.
Hooray for HTTPS!
If you are on Google+ (umm... like you are right now), chances are you want to be taken seriously and for people to engage with you and your content. Here are some tips and for making the best use of Google+!
1. Spread the Love
One thing that people seem to be scared to do on Google+ is interacting with others and making their voices heard. However, Google+ is a social platform! So it’s time to get social! If you are more shy and introverted, challenge yourself to comment, share, or +1 a post that you thoroughly enjoy. The author of the post will notice you, and it’s nothing but good karma to let people know that their work is appreciated and likeable.
2. Choose Your Audience
When making a post on Google+, you have the option of sending it to everyone (Public), to just certain people in your Circles, or to one of your Collections. There is no right or wrong, but each have different purposes. If your content is generalized and you think a lot of people could benefit from it, choose Public. On the opposite side, if your content is targeting towards a specific and small niche, think about sending it to a certain Circle of like-minded people. I typically put content into one of my Collections because it help me categorize the content I’m posting.
3. Shorten Links
When formatting and writing articles, you may sometimes want to reference a certain website, article, etc. When first inserted, Google+ postings have long URLs. To avoid taking up a lot of space in your article try using a URL shortener like https://goo.gl or https://bitly.com/. I recommend only shortening really long links. Why? Well, I just think being transparent about where you are sending people is the best option.
4. Fixing Mistakes
Good news...Google+ allows you to edit posts even after you post them. This can be extremely helpful if you are looking back over your content and find spelling errors, among many other silly mistakes. Utilize this feature and proofread your content before (and after!) posting to ensure quality and professionalism.
As promised, we're continuing to listen and respond to feedback on the new Google+.
Today we're launching a number of updates to our Web preview including:
- Adding a 3 column stream view for very wide screens
- Adding the ability to reply to comments in context
- Removing the limit on circle streams in the menu (previously 6)
- Adding the option to view 'Posts from Circle' from the Following screen
These changes (which you can see in the image below) will be rolling out today. And look for more updates on Android, iOS, and the Web soon. Thanks~
