Why Your Business Ought to Use Google Plus

google plus

Who wants to join another social network, right? Don’t get me wrong, I think there are too many social sites out there, but Google Plus is different. I am not saying it is better or worse than Facebook or any other social site, but what I am saying is that it is starting to become really popular. And whether you like it or not, it’s going to become a new channel for you to promote your business.

Although there isn’t currently a Google Plus profile for businesses, that doesn’t mean it can’t benefit your business. Here is how you can leverage Google Plus to benefit your business:

Step #1: Sign up

If you have a Google Plus profile, you are already off to a great start. If you don’t, go and sign up. As a heads up, there are two things that are required before you can sign up:

  • Gmail address – if you don’t have a Gmail address, you won’t be able to use Google Plus.
  • Invitation – if you haven’t been invited, you won’t be able to use it yet. If this is the case, just leave your Gmail address below in the comments, and I’ll invite you to it so you don’t have to wait.

Step #2: Create your profile

Just because your profile is supposed to be about you doesn’t mean you can’t also use it to promote your business. Here is how I would go about creating an effective Google Plus profile:

  1. Upload a picture – I don’t care if you are the hottest person or ugliest person on the planet, you have to upload a picture of yourself. Ideally, it would be one that includes you wearing a t-shirt with a company logo or something related to your business.
  2. Fill out your profile – when you’re first getting started, you may feel overwhelmed with the amount of information that Google Plus asks for, but it’s not bad. Fill in everything, including links to your company, what you do, all of the places where you lived, your education, and your contact information.
  3. Videos – if you have any speeches or interviews you have given that were recorded, add them to the video section. It will help give you more credibility, and it will give your business some extra attention.

Step #3: Add friends

The trick to having a popular social profile is to have a ton of friends. There are two main camps when it comes to adding friends. The first one advocates for only adding people you know, and the second for adding anyone who agrees to be added.

I personally prefer the second one, and although you may consider it spamming, I’ve actually closed a few business deals from random people that I have added as friends on social sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Ideally, what you want to do is add everyone in your address book as those are the people you probably know. Once you do that, I would search for people that you feel would be interested in getting to know you or your business. If you do this for a few weeks, you should easily be able to get to over 1,000 people who befriend you.

Step #4: Join the conversation

When your friends post stuff on Google Plus, you should be checking out what they have to say. Granted, at this point you probably are following too many people, and you won’t be able to keep track of every conversation, but you should be able to keep track of a few.

If you like a conversation, make sure you “plus it”, comment on it or share it with your friends. By doing this, you will help more people on Google Plus to get to know you. And if you ever share something with people who aren’t on Google Plus yet, it will email them every time you have something to share.

Step #5: Create conversations

Joining the conversation isn’t enough. You also need to create conversations. One way I do this is by posting on my own profile so that all of my friends can see what I am thinking.

Some of the things you may want to post are status updates, quotes from famous people, things related to your business, and just random things from your daily life. If you can post something on your profile on a daily basis, you should be able to get a good number of your friends participating in the conversations on your profile.

At the same time, you need to monitor which of your friends are engaging on your profile so you can reciprocate and engage on theirs every once in a while.

Step #6: Promote, promote, and promote

Now that you have an engaged audience, you can promote your business. There are two main ways in which you can do this:

The first is to link posts on Google Plus to your business or website. By doing so, you’ll help more people become more familiar with your business and what you do. If your business has a blog, this can be very effective. For example, Google Plus is now a top 10 referrer to TechCrunch.

The second way to promote your business through Google Plus is by adding a Google Plus Button to your website. The more people that click the “Plus Button,” the more traffic you’ll get from the social site. In addition to that, the more people that click on the button, the more traffic you’ll get from the Google search engine. Google has actually added Google Plus stats in your Webmaster Tools account so you can see how the button is affecting your search engine traffic.


It doesn’t matter if you think Google Plus is a hit or a miss, it is an effective tool to use to promote your business.

I hope this blog post has convinced you to join Google Plus and use it. In the long run, I think it will be a large part of Google’s algorithm that Google will use to determine how high to rank your website on its search engine.

As I mentioned earlier, if you don’t have a Google Plus invite, just leave a comment with your Gmail email address, and I will invite you. 😉

  1. Nice article, helpful to beginners, if you could invite me please i would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  2. I admit, I was going to ignore it. But you’ve got me thinking differently about it so I’ll give it as much of a shot as I gave FB and Twitter. Just added you 🙂

    • Awesome, thanks!

    • Ken iBuyBlogs Guy :

      That’s so funny Ruben because I almost did the same thing. I am visiting Canada again and when I am here I go and take time to catch up on some reading (usually Neil’s blog and two others), but wasn’t ecstatic about this one like I usually am… because well, it’s another social network… problem is, it’s a big one and one that I should pay attention to… Got me thinkin different too. I think +1 being a top ten referrer to TechCrunch was a ah ha moment.

    • You have to take every opportunity that appears and you can’t ignore something new that has a lot of potential to promote your business.

  3. I’m actually surprised at how many people jumped on to google plus. I’m holding off until I see it go big time mainstream like facebook or twitter. There are way tooo many social sites out there…

    Do you really think we need another one? Meh 🙂

    • I don’t think it hurts at all. Google is king when it come to search and information, so it’s a new breed of social network. social search network

    • Google is able to be on top of everything and I assume that being on Google Plus will have a bigger impact on your ranking than being on Facebook 🙂

  113. Matt Lawrence :

    Joining and creating conversations with G+ may indeed, be important.

    I would add that managing those relationships is just as important, Circles being a good step towards that direction.

    Adding Plus buttons may be important, but I disagree that the “Promote, Promote, Promote” method is what will make the most significant impact for a business.

    Managing the relationships you create on G+, and other sites is far more valuable that blasting self promotion through, yet another hose.

    Asking what the people in your circle need to grow/run their business, and generating your own (ahem) buzz with word of mouth referrals will move the needle far greater.

  114. please invite me to google plus! paul@gydos.com

    • Done, Paul!

      • I’ve really enjoyed Google+ Neil and now I am enjoying your writing about Internet Entreprenurship. You introduced me to Google+ and I follow you in one of my circles. I would really like to share with you on this platform and would be very honored if you would put me in one of your circles. Thanks Neil!

  115. Sorry Neil but I’m on the camp of not adding everyone. If I am interested by users who follow me, I usually add them to a separate circle (remember that circles are visible to you only). Else I just prefer them as friends, work, leads and those I follow.

    • To each their own. I like sharing insights and thoughts which is my primary motivation for adding my readers (whom I consider colleagues and friends 🙂 )

  116. Thanks for sharing Neil!

  117. Madhav Tripathi :

  164. Shilpi Singha Roy :

    I like Google + the most. If +1 works, it will not only improve search quality, but also make ads more engaging. This may potentially improve Google’s ads, and eventually may turn into a core social product that can expand in new directions

  165. Thanks, Neil. I’ll give it a try and look forward to your invitation.

  166. Fidelis Guti :

    I am interested please send me an invite

  168. hi , you convinced me.
    would you have any invitation left ?

  169. hi , you convinced me.
    would you have any invitation left ?
    Here’s my email florian.duval@gmail.com

  170. Hey Neil, your article was really informative. However, the points that you mentioned for people to create a business profile on the Google+ are similar to the business profile (or rather fanpage) on Facebook.
    Every social media site where you wish to promote yourself needs your true identity and at the same time intensive interaction with your peers and the “befriends”….
    However, thank you Neil on elaborating on the social media interaction forms…!

    • Great points, I think it is achievable if you work at it!

      • Yes Of course….its just that all of this needs a long time to practice, gathering the right audience to your profile and then the right content to publish. Also, I guess the major point after making up the mark on Social media is to keep updating frequently.

  171. Neil,

    Thanks for your article again.

    I have left my Gmail id here. Please invite so that I can use GGL+.

    Thanks in advance

    I like to use Google Plus because it got various features such as Circles. More over people going to crazy about Google plus because its going to be a big site of Social Media.

  177. my mail is,


    thanks Neil

  178. Ade Fahrudin :

    Very interesting article, I have added you to my Circle

  181. Aaron Clayton-Dunn :

    Wow, thanks a lot for your offer to add us to Google+. I’ve wanted to get on for a week now, but haven’t had an invite. My email is aaronclaytondunn@gmail.com.

    By the way, I really appreciate your blog. I became a reader a month ago when I started becoming more serious about learning about entrepreneurship for the sake of a couple ventures I’m working on with friends from Brown. Your blog has given me a sense of some of the challenges of running a business and some useful tips in meeting those challenges. Thank you!

  182. Thank for the invite 2richants@gmail.com.. Great blog which has a nice balance between general business and online business which is becoming very blurred these days but most blogs are one or the other… I also like your business principles ie work hard, be committed, dont expect sucess overnight and learn from your mistakes..

  183. Jupitor Chakma @ Health Blog :

    This blog was mentioned in http://www.johnchow.com/ and I had to visit this blog. A great blog I must agree and congratulate you for such a nice blog.

  184. Enjoying your articles!

  188. Hey Neil,

  194. OK, I’m convinced I need Google+. Thanks Neil! Would you mind sending me an invite to alx2006 at gmail.com.

  195. Wow Neil,

    I appreciate your blog and I’m a bit ashamed that my first comment is for begging an invite 🙁

    Great effort to invite everybody to google plus.

    My email is gabi.diaconescu@gmail.com


  196. Montana Flynn :

    Great writeup Neil, just wanted to point out that people probably shouldn’t post their email in the comment field, because it will almost assuredly get eaten up by spam-bots.

  197. Great article, I too was going to blow off google plus but I’ll try it! If you will send me an invite I’ll add you too! Thanks!

  198. Great article Neil. I’d love an invite please! kimberlycooper@gmail.com

  210. Kristijan Tomić :

    Thx a lot!

  211. Sounds Fantastic, would love an invite!


  212. love to be invited

  213. I would appreciate an invite.

  214. Why is Google so glitchy? I took your advice…set up a gmail acct to use Google Plus and they text me a code for finishing gmail set up thaty won’t verify! Now I’ve got a gmail user name reserved that I probably won’t be able to use! Is that crazy or what?

  215. James Cochrane :

    You’ve got a great site here – always worth checking out. That’s enough of me toadying! Plze invite to Google+

  216. Angel Sesma :

    Hello Neil,
    Your article just made me curious!
    If you could shoot me an invite I’d really appreciate it:

  217. Mark Wolfington :

    Thanks for the continual stream of useful information. You have been a good source for our new venture. Thank you for sending a Google+ invite.

  218. College textbooks :

    This is yet just one more thing I wish I didn’t have to buy into. While I understand it can help me and it is Google based so i should want to pay attention. But seriously, why can’t google stick to what they are good at, search engines. Why is there this need to have domination over the net. It is big enough to support many different business’s so why must Google be infatuated with ruling it. It is almost like world domination. If you have one super power ruling the area you will become stale and stagnant because there is too much government and politics involved. the internet has been able to flourish because of it’s diversity, Google isn’t Hitler and should stop trying to dominate as such. I am not trying to say Google is Hitler but seriously know when to quit. There no need to dominate everything.

    • College textbooks :

      maybe i am just jaded but, enough is enough. Stick to search Google! Plus those people who are in the know………get stalked by google. Do you really want to lay all your eggs in one basket to be reversed engineered.

  219. yes you are right Neil, Gplus is one of the bets place for business promotion because Gplus make easy to contact with high profile peoples easily and with hangout feature it is now more easy to get trust 🙂

  220. Sydney George :

    Please invite me Thank you

  221. Great article- I appreciated the tips & I would love an invite! Please & Thanks, Connie

  222. Neil, you really should put a big caveat in your article because right now G+ is NOT allowing people to create business pages and those who do, have them deleted.

    Though I suspect this will change in the near future as Google pushes G+ forward to meet the demands of their users and shareholders demand for increasing profits.

    Also of very important note, if you violate their terms of agreement and service – whether accidentally or on purpose, Google will not only delete your G+ account, but will also ban you from using all Google related products and services like gmail.

    Imagine losing all of your friends, family and business associates emails…

    As a marketer, the last thing I want is to get banned from using PPC with Google because of an accident or misunderstanding since they’re a little too quick to jump to conclusions and ban people for perceived infractions.

    Dealing with G’s customer service is a complete nightmare and one in which I try to avoid at all costs.

    • Thanks for the heads up. However, I am not adding people as business contacts they are part of my personal network. I understand that G+ is not operable for businesses at this point. However, I feel once it is up and running people can have an idea of how they can use G+ for business. Thanks!

  223. I have really wanted to start using it, I would really appreciate the invite, thanks !!!

  224. If you can send me an invite that would be great!

    Thanks Neil,


  225. Neil, very interesting article – can now see potential. Please invite me when you have time (afroutzis@gmail.com). – Regards, Argie

  226. Atif Nazeer :

    Every business channel has some prospects irrespective of their popularity+visibility so one should must give google plus a try. Invite me ifacedev@gmail.com

  227. Neil, I’ve been wanting to sign up and get onboard. Thanks for the insight! I would greatly appreciate an invite.
    Thanks, Minor

  228. Hi Neil,

    Fabulous post. I’ve added you to my groups and I think I’m on your group. Fabulous.

    One point: I was able to join without a google address. I joined google years ago with my aol address to get some blogger blogs. And I was able (I think) to join with that. I may be wrong and I’m not really using it right, but it seems like I’m in. (And I don’t want a google account because someone already has my name@google.com. And I don’t want my name with 18 numbers after it!)

    Anyway, thank you very much for this post. I look forward to more posts telling me how to use it better.


  229. Thanks for all the awesome information. Please send me an invite.


  230. Michael Browski :

    Hopefully they will be rolling them out soon. I just made my personal page into a business page. Anyone that still hasn’t been invited to Google+ you can get e quick invite at http://www.stumbleuponguru.com/googletrafficpump. Mine came pretty fast.

  231. Please invite me. Thank you 🙂


  232. Hey Neil,

    I am one of the subscriber to your RSS feeds. Hope this is not one other trick which is quite popular now a days on the web for those premium Google+ invitations. Anyways lets see if I am getting response to this one…(Have fallen prey to few of such offers earlier!!)

  233. Hey there, can you please invite me.

  234. Thanks Neil, this is very helpful for beginners. Google plus is super brand new to me, I’ve heard that it’s quite similar to facebook but it’s moving faster in circulation. I bet it’s user friendly just like how Google is a very useful search engine. This will help businesses specially as a promotional tool. Thanks again!

  235. At beta version, Gplus already hits 18million users man, don’t know way but gplus on top right know although there is no entertainment stuff too, except sharing sharing and sharing…

  236. Okumu Francis :

  243. Oliver Wright Esq. :

    Thanks. Didn’t know google+ had gotten so much adoption. If you could send me an invite, great. And thanks. After reading your take on the ‘only real friends’ vs. ‘everyone’s a friend’ issue, I think maybe I’ll reevaluate the thousands of invites I’ve ignored on FB and Linked In. Take care Neil.

  244. You should teach a class at USC. Would love an invite!

    reciprity@hotmail.com Thanks for all your work!

  245. Thanks for the article. What is your opinion? Google´s other social network Orkut did so poorly, what is special about Google Plus that will make the difference? I guess I will need an invite to find out.


  246. Karo Gyonjyan :

    Hi Neil,
    I read you whole content it is really help full. And it will be helping the people who are making their best product promotion and making friendship like with others too.

  248. There’s always one straggler…

    I must admit that curiosity has now gotten the better of me.

    Can I still get an invite?

  249. Oops, my email is mmundey@gmail.com

    • Thanks!! haha

      • Oh, dear, had managed to give you the completely wrong address (by omitting my entire first name, and thinking it an initial instead:/). It’s been a while since I used the ole Gmail account!

        A friend invite, right back at you, from me, will wing its way to you shortly.

        Just wanted to confirm that it’s all my fault and not yours ( I’m obviously incapable of remembering my own email address).

        I have a friend who was holding out on me re Google +.

        But, no longer, he has been shown no mercy! x

  250. Very good information. I had been meaning to look into Google+ but had not gotten around to it. Thanks so much for the article and explaining it all.

    I would appreciate an invitation as well.


    Thanks a lot. I enjoy reading your blog posts. Very helpful!

  251. Hi Neil-

    I’ve been reading the blog for some time and love it. I also have you downloaded on “Pulse” which is pretty nice for getting your new articles. I’d very much like an invite to google plus if possible!

  283. sell textbooks :

    My goodness you get a lot of comments! (You’ll probably never get to mine…) Anyway, I have a question regarding followers on social network sites: is it okay to follow, or to be followed by competitors? I would think it is totally okay. But then I’m not that “savvy” when it comes to how to do internet marketing. What are your thoughts on this?

    • It’s definitely okay to follow your competitors. Chances are they are already snooping on you, why not follow them and have instant information. Also, in the online marketplace there are few real “competitors” See if you can work together to achieve goals. Affiliates are great.

  284. Joshua Ratcliff :

    God Bless!!

  300. Niel,

    Is this a myth? To start an any online/physical business you need a good idea but the million dollar question is it true? How do you generate ideas for potential online business? Actually there seems to be a lot of potential with online content businesses that teach people things? What are your two cents?

  301. Hi Neil – I would appreciate an invite as I don’t like FB or Twitter. My email is the one used with this comment – You’re a good guy for helping people out –



  302. Neil,

    Do you think Google + would be an effective tool to market a website/blog? If so… any tips?

    Thanks in advance

  303. would appreciate an invite to Google + rad2112ad@verizon.net

  304. Lanka De Mel :

    Very clear, very simple.

  305. Hey Neil – I am on Google+ because people in my blogging circle invited me. I love your article, but I find it really curious that you talk about first getting on and then adding people. How is that good for helping business any more than any of the other ways we are already connected to those people that we’re adding?

    There is a lot I could say about social networking, but I think it boils down to that I don’t see how adding Google+ to the social networking repertoire is necessary other than trying to cover all of the bases. It just seems like people are doing it so that don’t miss out. Yet, I’ve found that so far, everyone on Google+ is a pusher (aka content marketer). It seems like general consumers aren’t even there yet. Most of my friends and family never talk about it. And I’m not just saying that because I’m a skeptic. It’s that fact that makes me a skeptic, rather than the other way around.

    • I suppose the same can be said about any product that has early adopters. Facebook wasn’t always as prevalent, however, because of a big push by early adopters and trendsetters it has grown.

  306. Web Design Resource :

    Google is going to shout down their unpopular services/product.So, they merge lots of features in a new product and produce new product like Google+.

  307. It’s a great promotional tool as long as your demographic is male/techy/nerds 😉

  308. gerry halverson :

    Enjoyed your article please add me as a friend on Google+.

  309. Great blog post, very interesting!

    Can you add me please?



  310. very interesting!

    Can you add meas well?


  311. Hi Neil there are two things in this page that have blown me off.
    1) Your article
    2) Your patience for replying everyone.

    I would like to have you in my Google + and Twitter, so I can read your articles and also can share my views with you. I have found your twitter account and following you now, please let me know the link for your Google + profile.

  329. AngelInvestor8 :

    Yes, there are indeed a great many social networking sites out there, but frankly, this is the time to join Google Plus, not when it gets more popular (and it will), but now! The sooner folks, the better.

  330. Hello Neil

    Thank you for the brief guidelines. I decided to sign up with G+. Please, send me the invitation.

    Thank you


  331. ProjectGreeting@gmail.com

    Please invite me, thanks!

  332. Whole Body Vibration :

    I’m sorry but am I the only one that see’s Google+ as waste of my time? Normally I knock all forms of Social media, and this post wont change my mind about Google+. I think there are better ways to engage your customers, its more important now, than ever to think outside the box of online marketing.

    • It is possibly a waste of your time if you aren’t building and engaging your community. People were knocking facebook when it first came out. The early adopters prevailed though! Thanks for your input.

  333. Whole Body Vibration :

    Sorry to see the pic of Mike Arrington, not a fan. Redditor for life.


    • Sorry you feel that way, I personally don’t hate or love anyone. It was just a random picture I chose.

      • Whole Body Vibration :

        I never said I hated him, I just don’t agree with his point of view on most topics.

        I just believe his opinion is overvalued in the web community.

        I feel the same way, loving or hating someone is too much of a waste of time, there are better things to do in life. Like post on this blog! 🙂

  334. google plus really nice it will have plenty members then facebook in feature

  335. Promoting google+ votes is becoming a very hot business. Using these types of services could have negative or positive affects on SEO.
    We just have to see how google treats them. Another place to buy google plus votes is bulkones.com
    Will be interesting to see how this evolves over the next few months.

  336. Social Media Saint :

    Buying +1’s has become a lucrative business. It all started with buying traffic, then buying Facebook likes and now it is Google +1’s. I’m not sure how much weight-age Google is giving for its +1 on each websites but they will soon take notice of selling +1’s and shut its way.

  337. Cake Pop Ladies :

    Hi, we’re looking to use/explore google+, but don’t have an invite … yet. If you’re still inviting people, we’d love one! Thanks!

  338. Enjoyed your article. My email address is a Google Apps address; should work for Google +. Would appreciate an invitation. Thank you.

    I am using the new Google plus and am following you. Great platform but still a long way to go to come near to FB

  349. Astrologer in Delhi :

    I have also started using G+. I am not familiar with it and trying to adopt it.

  353. Cooling Towers :

    I wonder about your short explanation and use of google plus. After read your article people never miss to sing in with google social network

  355. Your site rocks. Awesome info. Could I please get an invite? Email is jeffhcjan@gmail.com

  356. Laura in Texas :

    I really appreciate the information you provided in this post, but I’m getting so frustrated by all the blog traffic regarding how important it is to join Google+ — apparently I CAN’T! I’ve had a gmail address for several years, but any time I try to find out more about Google+ I just get a message that says it’s in limited trial and I can’t join! Aargh.

  357. Just a quick note, you need a google account and an invite, but not necessarily a gmail account. My google account is tied to my ancient hotmail email (because it’s the one everyone knows).

  358. Would appreciate an invite, thanks

    philipjarvisbsc at gmail.com

  359. Invite would be appreciated, cheers fella.

  360. Great site. Not sure why it took me so long to find it. Has lots of the information I was looking for. Going to try some of the stuff in this article. Mind sending me an invite?


  361. Terrific post, Neil! I’m giving a business report next month on this very topic, and you’ve given me some great ideas to incorporate. Thanks! An invite would be most appreciated! prairiedaug@gmail.com

  362. recording studios uk :

    I think Google is really getting it right now after failing on Google buzz before to topple Facebook’s domination. But of course, we won’t see that anytime soon, since Facebook is still strong with its 750 million users.

  363. Please invite me.

  364. Thanks Neil, for the great info on this site. Like some of other comments, I tried to register with G+ and they kept saying capacity is maxed out. Does an invite help? I’ll try again once I have your invite.

    Another question: I have an gmail email (unhique at gmail dot com), but I created a website & use it with google email service (nhi at unhique dot com). I prefer my email @ my own domain. Which one will work with G+?

    Thanks gain. 🙂

    • I will surely invite you. Please try it out and tell me how it works for you. You can definitely use your own email at your own domain at long as it is hosted by gmail.

      • Hi Neil,

        I think my other email addresses are “Google app accounts”. I do have a Google account email, nhihainguyen at yahoo dot com. Thanks Neil

        • No not yet Neil. I haven’t received anything in my yahoo email account yet. My own domain is an app account and it can’t be used with google plus yet. Please invite me again. Thanks Neil.

  365. Cool. Thanks Neil. How do I know if I got invited?

  366. Awesome article .. I would really love an invite please … signworxonline@gmail.com

    Thank you!

  367. Hi Neil,
    I want to open an account with Google plus.Please send me an invite.


  368. Hi Neil,
    as ever, thanks for the great posts. I’ve probably picked up at least 1 useful idea from each of them.
    I cut through to the Google+ one from your Big Marketing Ideas for Small Businesses post. Bit late on the bandwagon, but would you mind sending me an invite please? ssb780@gmail.com

    • No problem.
      I agree, there are definitely some useful things you could take ideas from and apply to any business.
      I hope you will use all you have learned to your benefit, also I will see to sending you an invite.
      Good Luck to you.

  369. Hi,
    Please can you send us an invitation.


  370. Hi Neil
    I was thinking facebook was good enough for me and I wasnt even trying twitter. Now I think google + has to be a good idea for my site
    Please invite me

    • Facebook is a good start, however I would recommend getting into Twitter before Google +. In the long run you really want to be on all social sites. Also you no longer need an invite.

  371. Please invite me to google plus. Also any other free ways to advertise my business on the internet. Thank you.

  372. I do not like G+ pages, they looks like bad copies of Facebook pages with no design, no ability to automate posting.

  373. This is the first info I have found about Google +. When I look for Google + on a search engine all I get is info on Google and ad words. This is great. I am looking forward to working with the social media.

    • Google + has not yet reached the hight of Twitter or Facebook but is still a social site you should get into. It may grow to be of equal impact in the future.

  374. Yasir Khan Quantum SEO :

    Do you think that videos are great for getting closer to your clients. a) they have a personal touch and show online clients that there is someone real behind the scene. b) The narrate more in less time and easy than reading a post which may take longer. I have never seen any of your videos, Why?

  375. Penny Blackwell :

    Hi Neil, I have just started google plus for my business. I don’t understand what to do now. When I try to sign in it wants my real name. Shouldn’t it be my business name? Also how do I get the google plus badge for my site. I found one and put it onto my site but when I click it, it just sends me to a sign up page with a picture of my business.

  376. Walter Schaerer :

    Recently when I post on my blog I will find the article’s SER shortly thereafter in Google. That’s very nice. But…

    … it always says that I +1 the article which is not the case, just yet. When I cross check my Google+ account the article isn’t there.

    Is that due to the author tag? Or due to Google custom search on my blog?

  377. SoundConnect Conferencing :

    At first I was a bit skeptical about Google Plus, but I’ve just keep hearing good things about it and how effective it is! Haven’t created a page yet, but it’s something I need to do ASAP 🙂 But if there was a single important reason to use Google Plus, what would it be?

  378. Sean Williams :

    Thanks Neil, I appreciate the information. Would you invite me to Google+?

  379. Neil,

    Thanks for taking my call today. You are an amazing wealth of knowledge and I’m learning so much as I go through all of your posts. Continued success! Appreciate the Google+ invitation.

    Thanks, Ed

  380. Nice article. I just attended a google+ seminar and this fills in the blanks a bit.

  381. Mirko Ceselkoski at TrainBodyAndMind.com :

    Hello Neil…do you have some numbers about how many people are joined on Google+ by September 2012? It seems to me that the hype is slowing down, maybe even stalling…

  382. Thanks for the step by step guide. It made a lot sense and easier to follow.

  383. hey neil,
    yeah you are right. i am convinced to join Google Plus. One must read this post.

    Thank you

  385. Great article, and helpful tips. Please invite me.

  386. Utilizing Google+ for SEO Is Great :

    I agree that Google+ is one of the best tools for business owners to use. Thanks for sharing this Neil!


  387. carpet washer reviews :

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that
    they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects
    , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.


  388. Thanks for helping me ????

  389. Rhonn Gilchrist :

    thank you

  391. Hi Neil,

    Great advice on Google Plus. What are your thoughts in regards to Google Plus in 2016? I heard they were going to scrap it and now are looking to develop it! Have you heard anything more?
