Tips for New G+ USERS: You Need to Circle More People.

The Google Plus users that are following you are the users that see your G+ posts

Followers: The people that have you in circles.

The people that you have in circles may or may not be following you. Google Plus isn't Facebook. People don't have to follow you back. Google Plus is like Twitter when it comes to following people. 

The people that follow you are the ones that will see your posts.

Does that make sense??

If you want more people to follow you, add more people to your circles or add a shared circle(s) to the circles you have created on your G+ account. 

If you want more people to follow you; COMMENT, +1, and Share the posts of other people.

If you want more people to follow you, Join some Hangouts (video chats) and talk to people and make some friends on G+. 

When it comes to who sees your post, Google Plus is like Twitter. 

When it comes to commenting on a post, G+ is similar to Facebook.

Making it easier to link your website to your Google+ page

When you link your website to your Google+ page, your recent posts can appear in lots of relevant places across Google. For example: when users search for your brand, an excerpt from a recent Google+ post may appear to the right of search results.

Today we're rolling out an improvement that makes the linking process a lot easier for page owners. In fact: you can complete the process in just a few simple steps:

1) Visit your Google+ page, open its profile, and click 'Edit profile'
2) On the About tab, save your website URL, then click the new button, 'Link website'
3) Follow the instructions for adding a short line of code to your website's homepage, then click 'Test website'

If everything's set up correctly, you'll see a confirmation message. Within a day or two, the link between your website and your Google+ page will be active, and a check icon will appear next to your URL on your profile (see screenshots).

We hope this feature makes it even easier for customers and fans to connect with your business or brand on Google. Let us know what you think in the comments!

Do Share: Write, Format, & Pre-Schedule Google+ Posts

Do Share is an extension for the Chrome web browser that makes it easy to create draft Google+ posts to finish later, or even schedule posts to auto-post at a designated time.

In addition to those features, Do Share simulates a rich text editor, by providing toolbar buttons that implement the simple formatting allowed in Google+ posts (bold, italic, and strikethrough) without remembering or having to type the symbols that generate those. Also, anything typed in the "title" bar is automatically bolded.

What Does Do Share Do and Not Do?
Do Share does support +mentioning (with the familiar drop down of your friends' names), and adding circles to which you want to share the post works just like it does in Google+. Do Share does not support adding images or videos, however.

One further caveat: because this is a browser extension, drafted or prescheduled posts are only present on the computer on which they were created (i.e., there is no synching to your other computers) and pre-sheduled posts will only post if the browser is open and logged in to Google+ at the scheduled time.

By the way, this post was written and pre-scheduled using Do Share.

Find Do Share on the Chrome Web Store at

HT: +Daniel Stoddart for posting about Do Share.

May visitor numbers from +Compete confirms Google+ growth

The May US website visitor numbers from Compete are now available, and shows that Google+ is growing steadily. The site had 22,3 mill unique visitors in May, a 10% growth since April. The Compete numbers does not include mobile (smartphone and tablets). 
The Compete statistics confirm the trend shown in the statistics from Experian Hitwise. But while Experian record visits, Compete record unique visitors.

100 million monthly users probable?
Several reports have shown that US Google+ accounts represent around 30% of worldwide Google+ accounts. If the Compete visitor numbers are representative, a possible estimate of worldwide monthly visitors to Google+ - from desktops - thus could be around 75 million. Including mobile devices, this could make the last published figures from Larry Page, 100 million Google+ active users a month, highly probable. 

More Google+ Local-effect in June?
Compete has probably not yet catched any of the growth from Google+ Local, that Experian Hitwise's June numbers have shown. As reported in this post:
Google+ with more traffic than Pinterest, Linkedin and Tagged in the US - growing 37% in two weeks
Google Places was integrated in Google+ from the 30th of May.

Still Waiting! When do we see the Google+ YouTube Integration w/ G+ Profiles?

We are still waiting for the improved integration between Google+ and our Profiles. Remember that Video Tab Thing - part of your profile settings?

When will we get to connect to our YouTube channel via that Video Tabs place so we can show off our Videos inside our Videos Tab here in Google Plus?

Maybe the folks at +YouTube or +YouTube Creators or +YouTube Creators have an answer for us.

We were told to start looking for it starting on March 30, 2012! It is now mid May 2012... I'm still looking! Are you?
