How to Post on Google+: a list of the BEST guides
Google Plus is not Twitter, and it's not Facebook. That means that what works on those platforms doesn't work here. I hear lots of people complain that their G+ posts get no engagement. Sometimes they are simply new and have not established a loyal following of active users. But most of the time they are using G+ like it's either Twitter or Facebook (or even Pinterest).

Posting for engagement is one of the main skills to master on G+, and here are the best articles I've found that outline how to do it. 

Wouldn't just one of these articles be enough? No. We learn through repetition. And each author brings a different slant to the message. You may need to hear the same advice expressed in a particular turn of phrase for it to click in your mind. So I encourage you to read them all!

Besides, not all of these offer exactly the same advice. Some differ in terms of recommended posting length whether or not you should shorten links. But you will see repeating themes that every single article is adamant about: offer value without click through, follow up on comments, use images, use bold and italics in your formatting, etc.

Most of these posts delve at least somewhat into the why behind the tips, but if you want more technical, detailed explanations, be sure to read the ADVANCED G+ POSTING section at the bottom.

Ultimate Google Plus Posting Guide
I love the annotated image of how to format G+ posts for engagement. Maybe you wouldn't use all of those options for every post, but it's a great guide to help you consider possible parts of a G+ post that begs to be +1ed, shared, and commented on.
My favorite quote: If there is content that you’d like to share with your own followers and also with another community, wait a day or two to spread out your sharing and create a new message tailored for each audience and community that you share with.

Want to Increase Social Signals?
The image comparing a brilliant G+ post versus a crappy G+ post really drives home how to increase social signals on G+. But read the commentary for more details about exactly how to win with G+ posts.
My favorite quote: . . . how much time did you spend writing that article? Don’t you think it’s worth spending a couple of minutes to make a quality post that has the chance of stimulating the social signals necessary to put it before more peoples eyes?

Link Litter Makes Me Wanna Puke a Little
You might be unaware that you are posting link litter on G+. If you're getting no engagement, this could be why. Learn what link litter is and how to write quality posts.
My favorite quote: Do you really think people are gonna waste their time reading it if you don’t even think it’s worth taking 1 minute to summarize it for them?

6 Ways a Formatted Google+ Post Will Increase Engagement and Interest
Mike explains what you should include in a G+ post but goes on to explain the why behind it so that you understand the strategy.
My favorite quote: The Title of your Google+ share and the commentary you add are just as significant as the rest of your article. It's been said that your Title should be compelling enough to get people to read your second sentence, and then your second sentence should be compelling enough to get people to read the next, and so on through your entire post. Your Google+ share works the same way.

Why Keep Promoting the Fake Mystery of Online Content?
This post here on G+ really opened my eyes to the generous type of posting that will engender relationships. Don't make the reader click to get value. Provide all the value needed right there in the G+ post. This is a totally different way of looking at posting on social media. And I like it!
My favorite quote: Is there some law under which a person must click the link to read the grand secret of the article? Why don't sharers just cheat and reveal the secret upfront, so that people don't have to click at all?

    Apprenticeship is a system of training a new generation of practitioners of a structured competency based set of skills. Apprenticeships ranged from craft occupations or trades to those seeking a professional license to practice in a regulated profession. Apprentices (or in early modern usage "prentices") or protégés build their careers from apprenticeships. Most of their training is done while working for an employer who helps the apprentices learn their trade or profession, in exchange for their continuing labor for an agreed period after they have achieved measurable competencies. For more advance apprenticeships, theoretical education was also involved, formally via the workplace and also by attending a local technical college vocational schools or university while still being paid by the employer often over a period of 4–6 years.

A Hyper-realism Journey in the Social Network
Introduction

I have a multi-directional approach to the art of social media and business management. I create an interface for groups of people to connect both physically and digitally with ease. I help maximize the talent of an individual in multiple groups, using a wide range of social media networks and traditional management systems. Over the years I have developed successful strategies that adapt quickly to the constant rapid changes in business, social media, its impact on society and its complex subcultures. Filtering information is a key aspect in identifying and making the most of emerging trends.


In my personal Facebook profile I share ideas and study the responses in order to make informed decisions about building and fading trends. In my Twitter account I use a series of hash-tags to direct and promote artists in a haiku-like style. This facilitates SEO and backlink traffic. Instagram is my archival gallery of digital photographic images that stimulate my creative process. Pinterest highlights pivotal points in my social network and my personal life. Foursquare supports me in creating an intimacy between brick and mortar businesses and the social network, through my personal life journey.


As a Multimedia artist, YouTube is my venue for exploring and experimenting with sound, images and video. I have created a series of mixtapes that combine social commentary, humor, satire, and music of different genres, to weave an hour-long story. Through SoundCloud, Mixcrate and Mixcloud I promote my repertoire to develop and expand my reputation in the entertainment industry. My personal blog is hosted on Tumblr and is the high-gloss magazine of my life.


Google is the foundation of my digital business because I can access my office from anywhere, on any computer. Using this business model, I can be in transit and instantly respond to all facets of my work. LinkedIn is my Curriculum Vitae and helps me stay up-to-date with current business trends in diverse industries.

A few months ago I had a broken window on my car. I went to the dealership and was quoted a price that I couldn't afford. Naturally, with some clear packing tape framed with duct tape I drove around town with a broken side window. Well, I asked around town where to go & everyone kept telling me to go see Howard @ ABS glass. I check out his website & contacted him via email explaining my situation. Less than 24 hours & I had a response. That week on my way to work I stopped by his office & was greeted with a friendly smile & showed him my taped window. He told me not to worry. Next day he had ordered the window for me & quoted me a very fair price! I was surprised how quickly he was able to schedule me in & within a few days I had a new window & no more duct tape. Howard was extremely professional & the price was more than fair. Thank You Sir.
