With a billion users on Facebook and another few hundred thousand on Twitter, have you forgot about the new social network going on over at Google+?
There is a good chance that you haven’t started promoting your G+ page yet, but some of you out there might not have even created a page yet. What many people don’t know is that Google’s social networking platform is now larger than Twitter and will soon be more influential in terms of building links and gaining authorship in the coming months and years.
It’s extremely important for you to focus your efforts on building your G+ following since Google is now putting their authorship and social sharing ahead of link building.
Here’s three ways that you can start building your G+ following fast!
Put a Google+ Badge on Your Site
One of the best ways to let people know that you have a Google+ account is to add their badge to your web site or blog. All you need to do is copy and paste the code and the badge will appear right on your site.
Add Your Google+ to Your Email Footer
How many emails do you send per day? There is a good chance you send a lot! Add a footer note to your emails along with a link to your Google+ account and you can start increasing your followers without any effort.
Use Your Google+ Url with All Your Writing
Whenever you write an article or guest post for another site, be sure to include your G+ url and you will reach new audiences every day. If people like your content there is a good chance they will follow you on G+.
Put these recommendations into play and there is a great chance you will start to see a huge increase in your overall following on Google+. Now is the best time to get ahead of the G+ crowd before the rest of the world follows suit.
