There are a lot of topics about the benefits of “Social Marketing” over the net. Among other social networks, Google Plus might be the best and most rewarding.
It’s very important for a blogger to share the link of their new blog post on Google+ for the following reasons:
- Your link will appear immediately on Google search through the G+ post. Moreover, it’ll be at the top of search results.
- Your link will be open for more +1s. The more +1s your link gets, the higher its ranking is. Nothing official in this regard though.
A link will get +1 through one or more of the following:
- Each sharing of the link to Google+.
- +1 on the G+ post that contains the link (or sharing it).
- +1 on the blog post itself through the official button of Google+. (see also my Letter to WordPress)
SO, start auto sharing your blog posts to Google Plus. AND, follow people with similar interests and give them +1s. They usually pay the favor back and +1 yours.

What an awesome share!
I am new to social media, avoiding facebook all these years, like the plague. I still do not care for it and have been recently ‘learning’ it for biz, more than personal.
Now I will venture over and ‘figure’ out Google+….sigh.
Thank you much, your post was very beneficial to me.
Thank you for your kind words. I’m very glad that you find it helpful, Ren. I don’t find Facebook honest when it comes to share links!
I’ve never understood what Google+ does in all honesty.After reading this I’ll have to give it a try.
I’m glad I was of help. Thank you Jeffrey
Great advice. Thank you.
Most welcome, Caroline. Glad it was of a help…
Thank you for the info. Wasn’t aware how it worked.
Glad I was of a help here. Thank you
I just added google plus. Thank u again😊
Way to go. If you published it on your site, I’ll follow 🙂
Thank you so much.
I am not sure if I understand the + 1 concept
It’s similar to “like” on Facebook. But they call it +1 instead of like. Google reads the +1s for a link as recommendations and thus better ranking links that are more recommended. I explained above how to get +1s for a link
Thanks for sharing such kind of information. I’m very thankful to you.
Most welcomed, Priscilla. Glad it was of a help for you
Hi ..great post…i have a blog at http://josestraveltales.com/ and somehow my google plus icon on the blog which u will see at top right hand of blog is throwing 404 error..can u pls help
Thank you, Jose. I checked that. Seems there is no problem. All your three icons/links to your G+ profile (top, right side, and bottom) are working OK!
Thank u..i got the issue sorted last night actually 🙂 Many thanks
as a new blogger leaning a lot of new stuffs from your article thanks
Thank you, Biyaheng, for your kind words. Glad it was of a help.
It seems logical that if you want Google to notice you, that you should post on their platform.
Thank you very much, Sherron. Yes, it’s definitely the logic behind it.
It only takes a few seconds to add to Gplus so it’s a no-brainer!
Thank you very much, Roland. That’s why I always recommend doing it. It’s a quick win!
