HOW TO FIND THE MOST INTERESTING PEOPLE ON GOOGLE+

Now... we all know that if somebody has a lot of followers, that doesn't necessarily mean that his or her posts will also interest YOU. And besides this, there are a lot of interesting Google+ users out there that could bring a lot of value to you, but they don't have so many followers. So, how do you find them? Here are some easy steps to find exactly what interests YOU the most!

1. ADD SOME CIRCLES OF YOUR INTEREST
For that, you have two options. First option is you go to http://goo.gl/PEqsM. There you'll find the Google+ Shared Circles Database started by +Chris Porter that has over 400 circles shared on Google+ (50,000 names). Add just the circles that are in a category that interests you.

The second option is to go on a google+ directory and look in the categories or locations that interests you. I talk more about some directories here: http://goo.gl/iMiTr

To add lots of people in your circles from google+ directories with just one click using Circle+ read this: http://goo.gl/gCrTE

2. UNFOLLOW INACTIVE USERS
For that, you can use a chrome extension, called Uncircle+ made by +Ehsan Ahmadi Gharacheh. I talk more about it here: http://goo.gl/EdYVL

3. EXCLUDE NOISY PEOPLE
If you have noisy people that post very often and sometimes you don't want to see their posts, you can add them to a special circle called "noisy people" and exclude that circle from your mainstream using an extension.

This way, you won't see their posts any more. When you want to see their posts again, just include them back or take a look at that specific circle. I talk more about how to exclude circles from your mainstream using Plus Minus here: http://goo.gl/xrJGW

4. MAKE DOZENS OF VALUABLE CONNECTIONS
For that you can use the Gather, Rinse, And Repeat method by +Dustin W. Stout which goes like this:

a. Start by following people who you believe to be “Thought Leaders“. You can find them through the google plus directories that I gave you and place them in a circle that is labeled accordingly.

b. Throughout the day visit the stream for this circle looking for interesting posts. When you find something interesting, leave a comment or +1 the post.

c. Circle everyone who +1′d, or commented on that same post easily using the Circle+ extension that I gave to you earlier. The circle you place them into is a temporary one that serves as a trial period.

The circle will only be active for a week, if anyone from that circle comments on one of your posts, or makes a solid connection with you, they will then get placed into one of your permanent circles. This is the gather phase.

d. At the end of the week, you delete the temporary circle. Anyone who has not been actively engaged, or never made a connection with you is removed from your circles entirely, and the others are safe in one of your permanent circles. You have effectively “rinsed” your circles.

e. Repeat. Just keep doing it on a week to week basis, and you will be constantly finding new, interesting people!

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
 Theodore Roosevelt
