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.

GOOGLE DIRECT CONNECT

Google+ Direct Connect Google+ Direct Connect lets you quickly navigate to a Google+ page (and even add that page to your circles) when using Google Search. For example, if you searched for the query '+youtube' or '+pepsi,' you could be immediately taken to the YouTube Google+ page, or the Pepsi Google+ page, and given the option to add the page to your circles.

How do I use Google+ Direct Connect?
When searching for a major brand, company, or cultural entity, try placing a '+' in front of your query. When you use the ‘+’ operator before your search query, it lets us know that you want to find a Google+ page.

•If autocomplete isn't available: complete your query and press 'Enter.' If a Google+ page for your search exists and is compatible with Direct Connect, you'll immediately be taken to the page.
•If autocomplete is available: as you type, you'll see results returned that are exclusively Google+ pages. Complete your query, or select from among the page suggestions and you’ll be taken to the page you select.
The first time you use Direct Connect and arrive on a Google+ page, you'll see the option to join or sign in to Google+ (if you haven't already), and add the page to your circles. What's really cool is that you can choose to add pages to your circles automatically every time you use Direct Connect. If you're logged in to Google+ and arrive on a Google+ page via Direct Connect, you'll see the option to automatically add pages to your circles when you search using Direct Connect.

If you decide to have pages automatically added to your circles when using Direct Connect, they'll be added to your 'Following' circle. If you don't have a circle named 'Following,' you'll choose the circle you want to add the page to every time.
If you want to change your setting for automatically adding pages to your circle:

1.Click your profile picture in the Google bar (at the top when you’re using Google+).
2.Select Account settings.
3.Click Google+.
4.Scroll to the bottom of the page and modify the setting for Google+ pages.

We’re still experimenting with Google+ Direct Connect and it won't work for every Google+ page. Additionally, some users won't have access to Direct Connect. As time goes on, we'll make Direct Connect more widely available.

How do I make my Google+ page eligible for Google+ Direct Connect?
A page’s eligibility for Google+ Direct Connect is determined algorithmically, based on certain signals we use to help understand your page's relevancy and popularity. In addition to this analysis, we look for a link between your Google+ page and your website. To help Google associate this content, be sure to connect your Google+ page and your website using the Google+ badge, or by adding a snippet of code to your site, in addition to adding your website link to your page.

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.

I am confused, I thought I setup a business Google+ but it shows up as myself. I have already authorized my website as well as 2 press releases.  How can I turn my page to a Business page and how will that affect my authorship?  I am so not savvy for these kind of things :(  #googlehelp #googlebusiness
