Want Better Search Rankings? Start with Your Google+ Profile

In terms of social network popularity, Google+ is nowhere near the top of the list. 
But ignoring or downplaying your Google+ profile could actually be a huge mistake. Because of its integration with so many other Google products, it's actually a lot bigger than it seems: In February 2014, the New York Times reported that 300 million people use Google+ and its affiliated apps each month.

HOW TOMAKE GOOGLE+ WORK FOR YOUR BUSINESS

1) Make Use of +1
The simplest way to define the +1 feature on Google+ is to liken it to the “Like” button on Facebook. It is a person’s personal endorsement of something that you have written about - a post, blog, a page of your website, etc.

If you generate content on your Google+ Page that people like, they could +1 it. The more +1s you receive, the more your relevance will increase in the eyes of Google. So if you keep submitting content that a lot of people genuinely endorse, the more relevant you’ll become. In other words, you’ll have a greater chance of being found through Google’s search engine.

This does not mean you can cheat the system and get a bunch of friends to create Google+ profiles purely to +1 your content. Google can identify suspicious behaviour - such as profiles giving out +1s to the same company - and remove all of those spammed +1s from the equation. So be honest with it.


2) Linking your Website to Google+

If you want people to be able to +1 content on your official website, you have to connect your website to Google+. This allows you to place a +1 icon on your site so that people can easily +1 a blog or a page on your website without actually having to leave it. This means more traffic can remain on your site while your Google+ Page is gaining endorsements.

The other benefit is that if you implement a Google+ icon onto your site, it makes you eligible for the Google+ service known as Direct Connect. Direct Connect allows users to go to Google’s search engine, type in + and a business’s name (e.g. “+Google”) and the user will be directed straight to your Google+ Page.

However, your business will only reap the rewards of the service if it fits within the algorithm. To do so, your business’s Google+ Page must be high in relevancy and popularity. The more +1s you get for your business on your Google+ Page, website or other relevant content, the higher your chances of relevancy and popularity.


3) Circles
Another feature of Google+’s is that of Circles, which basically allows you to organise your followers into particular groups. So if you have a number of followers of varying ages, you may feel that it could beneficial to organise people in Circles based upon their age bracket.

The benefit of this is that you can send particular posts to particular Circles without the other Circles being able to view that post. So if you want to aim a comment at followers 25 years and younger, you can create a Circle for them, then choose to only let your post be viewed by them.

This allows you to be more specific with your interaction and ensure that only the people you want can see what you’ve written. Just keep in mind you cannot add your followers into Circles until they’ve placed your business in their own Circle or mentioned your business.


4) Other Ways to Utilise Your Business's Presence on Google+

•Share photos, charts and slides that ignite conversation
•Add recommended links in your “About” tab such as your website and blog
•Promote Google+ on your blog and website
•Encourage people to share your posts


These are numerous ways in which you can make Google+ work for your business by increasing people's interaction with and awareness of your business and the products or services that it provides.

RoadSwap’s Game Changing App for Smart Phones Gives Truckers a Powerful New Tool to Buy, Sell and Swap Goods at Truck Stops

September 14, 2015 Roadswap LLC, based in Atlanta, Georgia, announces the launch of its new cloud application that locates and matches buyers to sellers using GPS to eliminate the high cost of goods for over-the-road truckers.

With Roadswap, truckers no longer need to use their CBs to find nearby buyers or sellers. RoadSwap combines GPS with trucker-to-trucker classifieds to give over-the-road truckers, the ultimate tool they need to easily find, buy, sell and swap goods when they need them now, not thousands of miles away, saving truckers time and money.

Most over-the-road truckers do not have the option of pulling off the interstate to find the things they need for a reasonable price. Anyone who travels long distances knows that merchandise along any Interstate is more expensive than the same merchandise found within towns and cities. For the trucker, it isn’t feasible to pull off the interstate, head into a town, drive through congested streets, find commercial parking and wander around looking for bargains or that necessary piece of equipment. Buyers save time and miles by meeting sellers in their vicinity at truck stops, rest stops and public gathering spots along their routes.

“When I’m on a long haul, the last thing I want to do is spend a ton of money for stuff at truck stops. It’s like they know I don’t have a choice cause there wasn’t any competition. Now with RoadSwap, there is [be]cause I can always find a fellow trucker nearby who has what I need so [by the] end of the day, I’ve got more money in my pocket.”

Take Jay. Jay knows the truck stop at which he’s laying over to relax and unwind after putting in the day’s grueling hours. Jay plans to shower, eat and return to his truck to watch a movie or two before bunking down. But, Jay has a small problem. He has watched all the DVDs he brought with him a dozen times. Jay wants something he hasn’t seen before. Since most truck stops are local monopolies, they have a limited selection of items at significantly higher prices.  Additionally, truck stops offer limited and costly WiFi that makes it impossible to stream movies, and TV reception is usually poor. Jay turns to RoadSwap to find movies he hasn’t seen yet and either buy them or swap his for them with nearby truckers.

RoadSwap eliminates the CB to hunt for sellers. With CBs, truckers need to broadcast verbally then field individual responses. RoadSwap is simple to use for buying, selling or swapping goods. A buyer searches for a particular item or scrolls through the classifieds that list everything available for sale or swap in the buyer’s vicinity. On the buyer’s smart phone or tablet, RoadSwap pinpoints, tracks and matches nearby sellers based on the Seller’s GPS location. This gives a trucker like Jay an at-a-glance view of all the nearby sellers.

If a trucker cannot find the item or it is available outside his or her immediate location, RoadSwap’s tracking function alerts the RoadSwapper when the item is within user’s defined range. Then it’s a snap to contact the seller and arrange a rendezvous at the nearest truck stop or rest area.

RoadSwap accepts no commercial advertising from retailers. It is strictly a classified listing service with the added benefit of GPS for individual over-the-road truckers. RVers and travelers will find it a useful tool, also.

RoadSwap is free application to download from Google Play for Android and the iTunes store for iOS. Links for both can be found at www.RoadSwap.com.  

For more information, please refer to the company’s website: www.roadswap.com

Get Traffic And Retain Them On Google+ For Social Media

Google+ is one more feather in your cap on the Social Media front. The question is how should you get more Traffic to your Google+ Page? Also what should you do so that they do not 'Un-friend' you.

Here are a couple of points that you might want to work towards so that your Google+ Pages have a good Traffic flow which you can retain as well:
•Remember to update your Profile Page. Have an appropriate image and proper Bio-Data. Use Keywords wisely and sparingly.
•Have Content that matters. Make your Content SEO based. Google+ gives a good opportunity to write in-depth Posts. This is a great opportunity to put your thoughts across.
•Make it a point to have your Google+ Link across all your other outlets and Customer Touch-Points. Mention your Links on your Blog, Site, other Social Media Platforms, Offline Communication like Press Ads., Hoardings and so on. Have your Link mentioned in the retail stores that you might have.
• If you have a Blog it would be great if you can write a quick Post about your Google+ Page. The way you went about creating it, what can be found on your Page and so on.
•Utilize the Google Direct Connect. Linking from that page to your website and vice versa. Have the Google+ Badge on your Site and Blog. This way you are informing Google of your Page's relevancy and authenticity.
•You can suggest to your existing Audience to share your Page in their Network.
•Use Circles appropriately and utilize the HangOuts well.
