I've come to like Google+. I can't really put my finger on it, but it has a very different atmosphere to Facebook's. Of course, they share pretty much the same type of circulating content, yet still there is a very notable difference - at least to me. I joined there initially to promote my blog, but now I use it for leisure as well, although, admittedly still not as much as FB and the other more "mainstream" sites.

Do any of our members here use Google+ as well? Would you agree with me that it has a unique atmosphere? If so, hopefully you can explain it better than I have. :) Anyway, I'd recommend it to anyone who hasn't tried it out yet, especially ones who are already using Blogger, Adsense, and/or Gmail already since you don't even have to sign up anymore.

I use Google+. I really think it is much better than Facebook but people are just too afraid to abandon Facebook. I also don't like to give up my Facebook account even though I maybe only post 1 thing each year.
Every company on Google Maps now automatically has a Google+ page so I think this is where a lot of marketing will happen in the future.

Google+ is not cool at all. I think it is too formal and will go for Facebook at any time. Then the only thing I like about Google+ is only the Hangouts. Hangouts can be good for business. Well that is my opinion.

Google+ has gained a lot of popularity now. I feel that it will definitely help in order to increase the website traffic if used properly. It is quiet different than facebook and other social media sites but is definitely very interesting.

Google plus has a very calm and soothing interface that makes it attractive. Although the problem is the lack of accessibility, tools and things to click on that makes Facebook and other similar sites more popular. And also Google+ is relatively new compared to Facebook.

Google+ does have a good platform. That is one thing about Google that you can practically take for granted. The problem is that people don't really want to use it. It seems like the majority of people that use it only do so because Google makes you for certain things. For example making comments on Youtube. That whole side of it really seems like they are just trying to force it on people so that it becomes at least somewhat lucrative. I understand Google+, it just hasn't peaked my interest.

We started using the hangouts for business meetings instead of Skype , I always found Skype very glitchy . I did notice that there has been a large increase in amount of content of ours being shared on google plus way more than facebook , almost as good as Linkden

Yes, Google always favors its own site in its search results - no surprise there!

One interesting thing about G+ is that you can use it as a way to rapidly build a targeted list to market to, by adding people to your circles and sending targeted messages to a particular circle. But you have to be careful not to spam anyone, in other words, make sure everyone in a particular circle really belongs there because of an interest, profession, skill etc. they have declared. It's also possible to opt out of receiving messages like this, but Google doesn't seem to publicize that very clearly.

I haven't tried Google Hangouts as a Skype alternative, but it's an interesting idea as yes, Skype can be glitchy quite often.

I don't use Google+, and I only have an account there because my YouTube and Google Play accounts require that. I was thinking about joining, but I have no need to do so. I already am well informed about the things I care about via Facebook and Twitter, so I don't need another info source. And my friends aren't using it either, and there's no point to use a social network if I'm going to be alone there, lol!

And Google's marketing annoys me, especially on YouTube. Google+ is everywhere on YouTube. Please leave it alone, Google.

I would never use Google+. One reason is because I can't stand Google, they're trying to take over the internet. Another reason why I would never used it is because it generally sucks. It was just Google's lame attempt to take over social media but they were too late in the ball game. Facebook has and always be the king of social networking sites. Google+ is also taking everyone's YouTube accounts over.

I don't use Google+, which I don't think it does help to promote business because I think it is still new comparing to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. I have given a try to use Google+ and it perhaps that many people don't know about it like Facebook does. I would think once people have tried it, it is just as good as other social medias. I haven't started to Use Google+, which I would consider it in the near future.

That's how I feel too. As of right now, a lot of people feel Google+ doesn't come close to offering all of the different stuff that Facebook currently does. A lot of people are wary of leaving Facebook since they're already comfortable with it. I feel Google+ doesn't do much for business in particular because not enough people are on it right now.
In terms of personal use, not enough of my friends are on it so I haven't explored much of it though it seems pretty similar to Facebook in terms of the basics.

I think the question is should you pass on the advertising you get by being on Google+. How much time will it cost you to keep your profile up to date? Honestly you can just copy and paste most of the posts you make on FB, why not use Google+? If you get a couple of customers here and there from it wouldn't it be worth it to have presence there? I guess it all depends on the business you run, but I still think you should take every chance you have to put your name out there.

The thing about social network sites is exactly what Thrix says..... at this point the place to be is Facebook, like it or not. Twitter had a good chance, but it had a different approach. There are tons of social networking sites out there, unless people are there it's pointless. At this point of time, it is about the numbers. The only way another social networking site is going to get bigger then Facebook, twitter or YouTube is to come out with something completely innovative and will probably be bought out or have to team up with one of the ones already running. Google... Google is a search engine wanna be everything else company and maybe they will be with the help of one of the prior mentioned. Now if your looking for a niche social site, then ya go and create it over in Google+. There are so many of those too tho, for dating(eharmony), for Business(LinkedIn) and bands(reverberation)..... so ya come up with something to tie all those! Good thread!

I don't also really liked that site. At first it was cool but then not a lot of people are actually active there so there's like not a need for you to be a part of it as well. I don't like the features. Facebook is still ruling when it comes to this.

I have to admit I really love the amount of traffic we get from youtube and our clients really like it too once get rid of the fear of video. But Google did drive me made when they changed youtube at first , now I see an massive increase in our video views and video video retention and ultimately to our lead capture page , I think the merge of G+ and Youtube has been positive on our end.

One think I would really like them to do is leave our G+ page design alone now I like the way it is now , god know I am sick of re-sizing and redesigning it

I use Google+ and I enjoy it a lot. At first i was kind of annoyed with it, because I was not use to the format. But once I got use to it, I was able to get into a groove with it. I would put Google+ ahead of Facebook and Twitter right now.

You're absolutely right.

I haven't put much energy into Google+. There's a great chance I'm missing out on customers. That thought makes me sad. I didn't much work into it. I told myself that I didn't want to spread myself too thin on so many social networking sites, but Google+ is becoming more relevant.

I don't really use Google+, since I've always thought that Facebook is still the social media of choice for many people. However, after reading some of the posts here, I might just give it a second chance. After all, it is free, and I'm recently looking into promoting my products on YouTube, which is automatically connected to Google+.

Google+ is okay if you dislike using different accounts for different purposes. With Google+, a single account allows you to use gmail, youtube, gtalk, and basically anything from Google.

I agree with this comment, and it's mostly why I chose to opt into G+ myself. I think the user base for both are very different even though they probably also have their fair share of users who utilize both, and it certainly seems worth it to have a voice in as many of these venues as possible. It's also probably why every blog or website have both on their share widgets, and seeing as most haven't chosen to drop G+ leads me to believe that it at least is somewhat effective, albeit still a lot far behind from FB judging from the activity statistics.

I do use google plus. I find it to be a great way to engage with other bloggers and other people with similar interests. It is not as social as Facebook or Twitter but it is definitely a great option for sharing between blogging communities and niche communities.

From a marketing perspective Google+ is a useful tool. First of all because it's owned by Google and Google loves promoting itself (see the recent storm regarding the integration of G+ in Youtube's comment system) and secondly because all marketing is good marketing. It's far from Facebook in terms of popularity / traffic and the aggressive promotion is annoying but more and more business owners/webmasters are turning to it or at least giving it a shot.

Personally, I don't like one bit the whole "one account for everything" phone verification deal and I find it intrusive, but I still use G+ to market my websites.

Rainman

Since Google is king in the search industry, to play safe it would be good for you to use G+ because Google is trying to grow their social network and they might reward you in type if you use G+. I've heard that:

Google+ activity has become a factor on search rankings, which is why it's a good idea to have a Google+ account and to create a certain amount of interactivity.
Of course you'll hear denials but that's the fact. But then it's more about reach than rankings. Some people who may find your stuff on G+ may not be on FB, Twitter or find your content directly on your blog because maybe they've never heard of it. So it's important to use every marketing tool available Google Plus being just one among many. . .

I don't like google+ especially when you are force to sign up to it when making a YouTube account and to comment on videos. It's a really bad idea and they shouldn't have added it to YouTube just to get more people on Google+.

I've dabbled in it and will completely flesh out my profile soon. None of my personal contacts use it. I agree that it has a different atmosphere, and I'm hoping it will pick up in popularity so we small businesses can get away from the bad changes Facebook continues to make.

Using Google + will be a huge benefit in promoting your business because 1. It's a Google product, and they favor their products in search results and 2. It's fairly new so you have a fresh place to make a name for yourself.

I just bought the new Google chrome notebook by Samsung and am navigating my way around the whole Google atmosphere. There is a whole new world out there and I am excited to adventure into it. I have however found it very aggravating that on Google profiles you can't make one for a business yet and so then you have your name on everything..... I don't think Google Pages is popular enough to mess with much, but I am just now diving into it. I have heard that Google will be upgrading for people to make business profiles soon! Go Google! LOL

When i already was up to date concerning the issues When i value by way of Fb and also Tweets, therefore i don't need to have another info source.

Search engines plus includes a extremely tranquil in addition to soothing software that means it is appealing. Despite the fact that the issue is having less ease of access, equipment in addition to items to click which enables Facebook or myspace as well as other equivalent internet sites very popular. And in addition Google+ is actually fairly completely new when compared with Facebook or myspace.

Personally, I am not a face of google+. I just find that it hasn't really caught on with anyone at all! I do have an account, because I use it to go on youtube. I think that youtube is probably the only reason that anyone has a Google+ account. Facebook and Linkedin seem to have a lot more power and sway than Google+, but who knows maybe one day it will take off!

Google+ is a social networking service which has been started by Google in direct competition to Facebook, the social networking giant. It has risen to prominence recently as it has been able to considerably to increase its user base. And with the recent advent of marketing on social networking websites, it is all but natural that businesses are using Google+ as a media for advertising their products and services. The only plus of advertising on Google+ is that the posts put on Google+ are indexed higher then others in the search results.

As a SEO Point of view, Google Plus is quite better than Facebook because it has lots of features which are better than Facebook features like Authorship. At Present, But as we all know Facebook is the largest social networking website. So, Google Plus may be beat Facebook in future.

Some people might disagree, but I think it's worth it, granted you treat it mostly just as a supplementary means of marketing that is only a part of a much wider campaign, but even if you use it exclusively, I don't see why it wouldn't work, to be honest. As far as I know, the user base there really isn't as small as most people think, just that it's obviously not as big as Facebook's, but still - a fraction of FB's users would still mean millions upon millions and I think it's helpful for entrepreneurs not to forget that as it does become somewhat of an unrecognized advantage. I tried it out myself and was able to gain a good amount of attention and followers in just weeks as the members there are very friendly and receptive, but of course, this result isn't guaranteed for everyone as you still have to know how to network well in any site or scenario to achieve a substantial result. Anyway, hope this helps your decision and good luck!

Thanks a lot for your reaction.

I use Facebook a little for promotions, and it seems to work quite well. People don't mind advertising for you when they have a chance to get something free.

Seems like I will look more into Google+ too. Do you know if Google+ presents statistics in a nice way for business pages?

The community is not small because Google makes all Android, and YouTube users sign up. I have no idea how active it is though.

I totally agree. Google+ is a cluster mess right now. I hate Google+, but Google is forcing it down our throat. I don't even comment on YouTube, anymore because i don't want to sign in to Goolge+. The service is just annoying. I wish Google would just get rid of it.

You'll certainly need more than a G+, which you seem to know. However, having a G+ page is more than a "social presence". I mean, G+ really is not a social presence. Nobody is on G+. Like, really, nobody.

BUT, a G+ page helps tie into your local listing, which will help you rank in the 6 pack for relevant search terms. Don't think about Google+ as a social network. Google really doesn't even look at G+ as such. Google+ is a datamining center and is becoming more relevant for the Google Carousel, local listings, and reviews (since acquiring Zagat). G+ integration will also help with on-site blogging via the authorship tag.

I use google+ but it's not really for mass social networking. I feel google+ has its place but the interface prevents it from becoming the next facebook or myspace. The circle interface helps google+ fill a niche where you just want a enjoyable and productive virtual layout to communicate or keep in touch with a select individual or group of people. Inevitably, google+ isn't really the best site to stalk on people and for people that enjoy learning (or creeping) about people they aren't necessarily close with, facebook will always be the preferred medium.

Being a Gmail user I naturally, technically, have a Google+ account. But I certainly don't use it. On a personal level, all of my friends are still on Facebook, and in general Google+ has no where near as many users as Facebook. My account just sort of sits there.

Really interesting reading through this thread though. I think that when it comes to my online presence, I am missing something by not utilising Google+. For instance using circles and groups to reach my targeted niche. I may have to rethink my social media strategy...

I signed up when it first came out and was frustrated at how little it caught on. I actually just re-signed up for a Google + account yesterday. I figured it won't hurt to have multiple social media accounts and who knows - it could become more common to be used in the future. I use Linked In and Facebook daily. I use Twitter every couple of days.

Yes, I use the google plus and according to me it is a good place to interact with your friends and followers. It is a very popular social networking site. Google plus also has a good term with google and helps to get high ranking on Google. Google will crawl all the post of google plus. So it is beneficial.

Of course, they share pretty much the same type of circulating content, yet still there is a very notable difference - at least to me. I joined there initially to promote my blog, but now I use it for leisure as well, although, admittedly still not as much as FB and the other more "mainstream" sites.

Do any of our members here use Google+ as well? Would you agree with me that it has a unique atmosphere? If so, hopefully you can explain it better than I have. :) Anyway, I'd recommend it to anyone who hasn't tried it out yet, especially ones who are already using Blogger, Adsense, and/or Gmail already since you don't even have to sign up anymore.

Gplus is fast growing social network, and its more active than you think with over 135 million active users. G+ index quickly into search results. Business pages helps to increase visibility. Facebook has their own landscape and also very effective for businesses.

I use Google+. I really think it is much better than Facebook, but people are just too afraid to abandon Facebook. I also don't like to give up my Facebook account even though I maybe only post 1 thing each year.
Every company on Google Maps now automatically has a Google+ page so I think this is where a lot of marketing will happen in the future.

Hey Delusional, I agree with you. It is the place to be if you want to advertise your business. It is especially effective if you have a Blog and link it back to your business page (if you have one already)... join a few business communities and you soon have more than a thousand followers. You also find the right crowd when you need to advertise a service or product...

I make use of google+ for online marketing.it is a good tool .add various communities and share your product for promotion.it is a good medium to put regular product posts on friends's( all together once only) wall also.What you need to do is just add friends in your circle.

In my opinion, there is no harm in any of the social platforms, it is what you use it for that is going to determine whether it is good or bad, although I don't believe in good or bad. Whether you like it or not, when you open a Gmail account, you are assigned a G+ account. I like all platforms because I learn a lot about people and what makes them tick. If you look at this forum, there are so many different points of views, which actually makes it an interesting mix. Forums are also a type of a social platform because we share ideas and give advice where needed. Google+ in my opinion is primarily for the good of your business and if you use blogger, even better. You just publish a new post and within an hour you have more than 200 visits. All you need to do is have the G+ notification ticked. I love wring and sometimes I just write what comes to mind and to some it is crap, and others think it is a different way of looking at it. I've learned to accept people are different.

Google+ is popular because it is one of the product of Google and its emphasis is to promote products and services. earlier g+ was giving do follow link which were very beneficial for seo professionals but later Google changed it to no follow link.

I just read today that Google is replacing the profile photos of all verified G+ users with a clickable link. They claim that it's in response to how mobile has taken over search habits. It makes sense, but does make G+ author rank a little less useful.

I like Google+, it sounds pretty straightforward but I really do not think that it does anything that other services do not do. The problem is that Google+ was forced down peoples’ throats when they integrated it into YouTube. That really rubbed many people the wrong way and I think is something they still regret.

Google has recently stated that Social Signals aren't really important to ranking yet. However, since Google integrated G+ and Google Places for Businesses, it is excellent for Local SEO. Your profile could show up in searches and you can tailor the information that is shown.

I highly doubt G+ will ever over take Facebook, but every brick and mortar company should have a Google Places for Business page which will help with your SEO and online presence.

Hi,
Google+ very good site for sharing and posting your products and services or content, get higher visibility in google searches as compared to facebook

Thank You

Ramon_Salla
10-27-2014, 05:18 AM
Yes google plus is an newer social network in compare to facebook, but its signals cause you to have better ranks (again in compare to face book likes and shares). But although Google plus ones have some capabilities to get you to better rankings, they are not enough at all, and in many cases g plus ones don't have any affect at all. For example you can have a site full of content and 20,000 gplus ones but still without good backlinks your site will probably reach nowhere on a competitive keyword.

katiebell26
10-27-2014, 05:25 AM
Some people still believes Google+ provides a good boost to the website's SEO.
But I would use Google Plus for sharing any kind of stuff almost everything!
It is to be noted that Google+ supports GIF images while Facebook and Twitter don't.
That's really a great advantage!!

LYFEMarketing

Google+ is very effective for both, SEO and SOCIAL MEDIA reasons. In order to reap the full "social media" benefits you must do the following:

1) Find your target audience
2) Like & Comment MEANINGFUL remarks on their posts (Should be strategic and related to your business in some way, or it's just a waste)
3) Follow until you reach your limit daily (Only follow your target audience)
4) Post great content

I hope this helps. :-)

Google My Business including Google + is critical to your business if search engine results are important to your business.

A physical store front location of any kind (retail, service, etc) should absolutely claim their google profile - google provides one anyways which can include WRONG information and mislead your customers. Examples I've seen - fax number listed as phone number, wrong hours, wrong location on google maps.

We can help with this if anyone has any questions feel free to PM me.

The things which you're shared in the Google + will be crawled by the search engines very fast. UI is very simple and easy to understand, the navigation makes easier to find people and interests, for the business terms Google + is very useful. To mingle with family and friends, then Facebook is the correct platform.

I've come to like Google+. I can't really put my finger on it, but it has a very different atmosphere to Facebook's. Of course, they share pretty much the same type of circulating content, yet still there is a very notable difference - at least to me. I joined there initially to promote my blog, but now I use it for leisure as well, although, admittedly still not as much as FB and the other more "mainstream" sites.

Do any of our members here use Google+ as well? Would you agree with me that it has a unique atmosphere? If so, hopefully you can explain it better than I have. :) Anyway, I'd recommend it to anyone who hasn't tried it out yet, especially ones who are already using Blogger, Adsense, and/or Gmail already since you don't even have to sign up anymore.

No I don't :P I use G+ for SEO, not for persona purpose. In fatc, it's because people in my country do not use G+, so I have no reason to use it although I found G+ is quite interesting

I agree with the fact that Google + is one of the fastest growing social media platform. It has over 135 million active users and every day it is growing very fast. Saying that, still there are more number of people considering it as a ghost town with lacking active users. They are missing the point that Google plus posts are indexed quicker than the posts in other social media platforms. Also for businesses, the local pages help the customers to find them easily. Other than this, if you seriously ask are you using it for leisure purposes, my answer will be a big NO.

On the social side, linking your Google+ profile to your website also has the potential to display your recently published blog posts and news stories within the search results. Making sure that you are regularly updating your site’s content and sharing this via Google+ gives the best chance of promoting updates to a wider audience, and increases the chance of this content being shared and endorsed.

I agree with this comment, and it's mostly why I chose to opt into G+ myself. I think the user base for both are very different even though they probably also have their fair share of users who utilize both, and it certainly seems worth it to have a voice in as many of these venues as possible. It's also probably why every blog or website have both on their share widgets, and seeing as most haven't chosen to drop G+ leads me to believe that it at least is somewhat effective, albeit still a lot far behind from FB judging from the activity statistics.

Brittany
01-02-2016, 03:51 AM
The only reason I use G+ is because of Youtube. I think the idea is great, BUT at its current form, it is way too confusing to use. You have to go through too many hoops to get to where you need to go and do the things you want. It's not straight forward enough.

According to a study by Searchmetrics, social signals — recommendations through Likes, tweets and Google+ — account for 7 of the 8 most highly correlated ranking factors in Google search results. Social networks are used by real people who reveal what they genuinely like and think is important via sharing, liking, retweeting, and +1′ing, so it’s not surprising that search engines track these indicators. Google +1s have the highest correlation, followed by number of backlinks, Facebook shares, and Facebook total.

Main hassle with Google+ is that people don't spend significant time on Google plus timeline. If there is no human then it doesn't make any sense of posting on Google+ page. Yes, Now Google also stopped social media's links in consideration for ranking.
Google+ failed to gain the tag "people's medium of interaction" as like facebook or twitter.
You should continue with Google+ but not as much as facebook or other platforms. To get high influence of your post, you can share it with communities. There are number of communities available in Google+ especially in fashion, travel and health categories. Be a member of the community and start sharing updates with them.

YES! Trust me, I am not one of those weird Google+ fanatics. But, most people and businesses look over the potential and potency of Google+. Just think about it. On Google+, you can organize your "friends" into different circles so you can share what you want with who you want--unlike FB, where everything is shared to everyone. Google+ is sort of like Pinterest, Facebook/Twitter, Instagram, and Vine combined, you can +1 something, post your own thoughts, share a video, image, or other post. It's more versatile than Facebook. Google+ has YouTube--which is becoming BIG--and Google--which is the top site in the world--backing it up. AND it does not host third-party applications like FB.

Google+ seems tacky and not "with it," but the social network is actually one of the strongest business tools out there.

I use G+ and comfortable with it, we have options to link with the connection of our type. Most of the people have account on gmail and therefore it is easu to connect with G+, so most of the people can easily join G+ and we can add the in our circle.

I still use Google+ even if it is not that beneficial for my business, it is just that it is one of the those free social media platform I can use to extend my resources.
Besides it is not that hard to maintain, all you need to do is to keep it updated.

I've come to like Google+. I can't really put my finger on it, but it has a very different atmosphere to Facebook's. Of course, they share pretty much the same type of circulating content, yet still there is a very notable difference - at least to me. I joined there initially to promote my blog, but now I use it for leisure as well, although, admittedly still not as much as FB and the other more "mainstream" sites.

Do any of our members here use Google+ as well? Would you agree with me that it has a unique atmosphere? If so, hopefully you can explain it better than I have. :) Anyway, I'd recommend it to anyone who hasn't tried it out yet, especially ones who are already using Blogger, Adsense, and/or Gmail already since you don't even have to sign up anymore.

Absolutely! I've just recently joined it and I'm having such a good time there. You're right, the atmosphere is a lot different. Maybe it's because Facebook has this really competitive aura, like everyone's just trying to one up each other. On the other hand, Google+ has this community vibe. The people there welcome you with open arms and the discussions are highly intellectual. I pick up a lot from the people I've exchanged words with. Google+ Communities are especially welcoming. Everyone encourages everyone to share their own opinions and I think that's what really makes Google+ such a great social media site.

I definitely have been using Google+ more and more in the past few weeks! I have just started to become disappointed in Facebook and I am starting to believe that Google+ might be the best place for online business interactions! Facebook is just becoming too distant these days!

I have used Google+ from the its beginning. However, at the moment, Google+ decreases it effect much, but I think it is still good for us to share and earn backlinks. Besides, you can take advantage of Google fanpage to share and promote your videos on Youtube channels. I think if Google does not make any changes, one or two years more Google+ will gradually die.

High search rankings are important in inbound marketing so G+ Still can play a good role in increasing your presence in Google search engines but If you do it in a better way instead of making it as a promoting machine. I do have a profile on it and I think it can be a good option. So start making profile on it and experience yourself.

Have Good time!

Google+ is not cool at all. I think it is too formal and will go for Facebook at any time. Then the only thing I like about Google+ is only the Hangouts. Hangouts can be good for business. Well that is my opinion.

Hi, I will try to use Hangouts as well. Is this good for online business? Will really be helpful when I can add this one to my social media sharing sites.

I used to be the opposite of what I use now. I used to love Facebook and when I tried using Google+ it just didn't feel right. It felt messy and I didn't like using it. Now though, I use Google+ a lot more than Facebook. It's to get involved in communities on G+ and it seems like there's a lot more people using it now to when I first started. It's good for promoting content and networking.

I've strayed from Facebook and stick to use Twitter and G+ primarily now.

Hey Collin, I explored G+ but is there any interaction between the communities at all? I heard about it so much but it's been long I don't see any interaction over there. What i could find was link sharing and promoting self. Or hey, have I missed out on any business group which is actively participating in discussions. If yes, please let me know the names. I would love joining them.

Yes, I am a regular user of Google+. It is a fact that it is unable to beat Facebook but it has some features which are unbeatable and obviously underestimated. Most of us are comparing it with Facebook and Twitter but technically it is totally different platform and it is not wrong to say that people take it as alternate of Facebook. If you have a brand or website then undoubtedly Google+ is the best platform to make genuine audience base. You just need to hit the correct community. Apart from that i love its hangout feature. I personally recommend you to spend some time in Google+ to explore new possibilities. One more thing which I personally like is you find less fake people here because such people love Facebook. So what are you waiting for start using it now.
