G+ Tips and Tricks  - 
 
Over the last few weeks ive been working on getting more  followers, Alot of the articles i read online included adding ALOT of people from the people page and hopeing they added me back ,

I tested this and found it was not very effective at getting people to folow me back . And wasted alot of time removing the waster follows via circle count

Ive now founf a much more effective way of getting followers ,

My new tactic is to share my content with communities and then add the people who +1 my content , Ive found that doing this results in a much higher % of follow backs than adding random people from the people pages !

Hope this will help some one get a few more followers !

Hi +stewart wilson. The following post discusses things to do and things to avoid doing if you want to build a following on Google+. As you will see, adding followers is not on the list. That's because we have seen that it is generally ineffective as way of getting followers. Perhaps more important, the kind of people who follow you back simply because they followed you are probably not going to be quality followers -- and having quality followers is far more important than just having a large number of followers.

Heads up! If you still depend on gplus.to as your Plus link shortener...

then please be aware that it has been offline for the past two or so weeks—and still is at this writing (with a 500 error now thrown into the mix). Google search doesn't even index the domain anymore, and Archive.org cannot access it due to robots.txt...to the point where archive.is/brSGK is your go-to. (I've been actively keeping track since the weekend of April 23–24.)

One +Chris Lang by name offered this premonition, way back in G+'s early days (https://plus.google.com/+ChrisLang/posts/LEVyJgzPbgk, 23/7/2011):

"The problem is that it is owned by some ISP in Turkey. I don't care to trust incoming links to my Google profile to God knows who."

For those who still want to rely on a shortener, look no further than the long-running tinyurl.com in the meantime. Just add in your long G+ URL (e.g. https://plus.google.com/u/0/103283675665371670119/posts), followed by the custom alias below it (Plus[USERNAME] — just replace [USERNAME] with your preferred handle). If you have a G+.to URL lying around in your Web profiles, now is the time to start changing them and/or converting; I'll do that as soon as time permits.

As for the service itself, I don't know how soon it'll return; the webmasters, as usual, cannot be contacted. Even though their +Gplus.to page is still there—with no posts since November 2011! If it miraculously does, I'll let you know.

Surprised that no other users have brought it up till I came in. Good thing +CircleCount and +All my + remain unscathed for this.

Thanks for the heads up +Dylan Cuffy​! I expect most people who create short links don't regularly check to see if they are still working.

10 things that every new G+ user should know
1) Who to share with.
https://plus.google.com/+AlexGarcia66/posts/Lr9GoEjLYa8

2) Who can comment on your public posts.'
If you are under 18, your default is only people in your circles can comment. Since you haven't added many people yet, most people can't reply to you. To change this, go to plus.google.com/settings

3) My posts are not showing in communities
https://plus.google.com/+JohnSkeats/posts/R9y9VtUPxSh

4) Posts in public communities are public.
Everyone that visit the community can see them.
Even if they are not community members.
They will show up in G+ search results.

5) I can't change my name.
There is a limit of 3 different names within a 90-day period.
You will have to wait.

6) I want to change my customised G+ URL.
Simple answer. You can't.
But there is only one hope.
Use the Send Feedback feature from the account that owns the URL and explain what you want and why. You will rarely be successful and almost never you will get an answer, but all you can do is try.

7) Do not set audience restrictions by country or age, unless you really have a valid reason to do that.

8) Google plus settings

9) None of the above

10) Still need help.

Are you following +Dtya York or are you just getting posts about that?
You just tap the post author or hover your mouse over the name. If it says follow you are not following them. If it says following or a circle name then you have to unfollow.
If you are not following them and you are getting posts it's because you are not following enough people/pages on your own and Google suggested them.

As someone starting to set up my G+ business page, I need a little help. In the Classic version, there was a tab for videos that automatically pulled in my youtube channel. This is crucial for my line of work and advertising. However... I cannot seem to get this to appear on the New Google+. It shows my posts, collections, interest with no problems - but no youtube videos. Any tips for pulling in the old videos tab from Classic G+ to the new G+?
