Wednesday! It’s Time for a Party!!!! Regular linky party at the end of this post; amazing features tomorrow, ….. ‘cause today the limelight is going on a new kind of linky party …. Ta da….
A Google+ Club
Google+ is important. You MUST be ready there now for your blog to exist tomorrow. Bold statement, right?! Well, I think Google+ IS vital for your blog’s success.
You all have a Twitter, Facebook & Pinterest account, but Google+ is bound to be the next big social media and traffic source driver. I admit: I found Google+ confusing at first. All these circles… It was ‘confusing’ because the Google+ social media design is multi-dimensional. Compare that with the much simpler designs of other social media sites: 2-dimensions (Pinterest) or 1-dimension (Twitter). I am sure that the initially confusing nature of G+ is why many of you have just a tiny Google+ following and not that much posted there. Let me help you!
Join our Google Plus Club
Today, I am going to help all us bring our Google+ account to a much higher level. I have teamed up with Amanda from Mommy is Coocoo. We have a group blog hop today, together with many other G+ blogs. Amanda in the lead. She has nearly 300,000 G+ followers, so she sure has figured G+ out. Follow her instructions on how to participate in our Google+ Club and get a following as great as hers!
Grow YOUR Google+ following
with our G+ party!
If you want to be included in our Google+ circle, this is what you do:
- Step 1: Please ADD our button to your sidebar or post! That’s the top photo in this post, which is much smaller once you copy it.
- Add ALL Cohosts to any of your Google Plus circles.
- Step 2: In the linky party below Link up your Google+ URL, and NOT your blog URL!
- Step 3. Share a ** creative post ** e.g. recipe, DIY project, crafts, to the public on your Google+, and include the hash tags #mommyiscoocoo and #finecraftguild.
- Step 4. Socialize!! The more shares a website or blog post has, the better chance it has of ranking well. You have to promote others, so that OTHERS will to promote YOU, i.e. self-promotion through the promotion of others. See?!
- So what you do:
- Add new friends to your circles.
- Comment and Share posts you really enjoy!
- Step 5. Throughout the day +1 posts with the hashtags #mommyiscoocoo and #finecraftguild on Google+
If you want a bit of Google+ training, Amanda does that as well. I just signed up for the training, and will let you know more about it in a little while.
Amanda also created Facebook group for Creative bloggers who Google+. To join that group, as well as this linky party, leave Amanda your email address, so she can add you to that FB group too.
