  2. Google+ also enables you to insert any number of followed links right into the posts. Simply enter the full URL to make Google format it automatically as a link.
  3. The first sentence in your Google+ post is part of a title tag which correlates with rankings highly and influences your click-through rates greatly. Choose the keywords carefully and mind that your first sentence is the first thing many people see.
  4. Google+ is much like your own small personal blogging platform which means you are free to fully edit your any post any time, unlike with Facebook and Twitter.
  5. When you share the content on Google+, Google will quickly index the page. Share all your content on Google+ and other social networks to get quick indexation.
  6. Google+ offers over 17 notification triggers to help website owners connect to influencers of your industry. According to your account’s settings, such notifications can be a phone SMS, email, or just Google notification bar.
  7. If you successfully maintain your author tag and get a catchy photo for your Google+ account, you may even reach more free traffic than your leading competitors.
  8. Google Analytics has a greatly progressed social media reporting. Its amazing and free social media lets you view all the essential metrics of Google+ traffic or other social networks at one glance.
  9. Try the tool CircleCount. Just by pasting in the Google+ URL you can chart the daily follower growth, your posts’ virality, or even see the “CircleRank” score against other Google+ profiles.
  10. All these tips will matter only when you actually has a Google+ account.
