A helpful infographic on how to make the most from Google+.

Which tips are you already using to make an impact on Google+?
 
How to Become a Google+ Wizard [INFOGRAPHIC]
To enlarge image: i.imgur.com/KoME7Rf.png

We've all heard the sentiments that GooglePlus is a ghost town and that the social platform's audience is artificially inflated by Google, but a new +Forrester Research study [1] reveals marketers and brands are crazy to ignore it.

Forrester team's research, shows that 22 percent of U.S. online adults use Google+ on a monthly basis, and that Google+ posts generate nearly as much engagement per user as their Facebook posts.

So, if you are not using Google+ in your marketing mix, it's time to start.

In case you are not sure how to use G+ effectively, the following infographic from Gryffin Media will help you in becoming a Plus wizard.

A key takeaway from visual:

"Google is using Plus to incorporate social signals into their search results ranking algorithm. This means your profile, posts, plusones and re-shares will all be incorporated into future rankings."
