Even if you write great content, your blog won’t get views unless you promote your blog in all the right ways and places. Google+ has massive opportunities to promote your blog, and drive traffic to it.
Here are five tips on using Google Plus to drive traffic to your blog posts
You use them on Twitter, Instagram and even Facebook so why aren’t you using them on Google+?! Google+ allows you to tag your posts with hashtags. Ideally, you should create at least three, with the most relevant hashtag first. Just remember that the first hashtag you use should be the most specific to you and your post.
SHARING YOUR POSTS AUTOMATICALLY
This is pretty easy to set up and it means that you content will head straight over to Google+ for all your circles (or however you set it) to read your newest post. Every time you publish a new post, it will automatically share the post publicly on your Google+ profile. This saves you time and gives you an easy option to reach a wide audience.
CREATE OR JOIN A COMMUNITY
Google+ communities are similar to Facebook and LinkedIn groups. The one main difference is that you can use either your Google+ personal profile or your business page to both create and participate in communities. There are groups on almost every niche on Google Plus, and you can join them with ease. You can also create a group for you if you think yours doesn’t fit any community out there.
CREATE COLLECTIONS TO ORGANISE YOUR POSTS
Google+ Collections lets you organise your posts by topic. For example, if you’re a writer, you can have individual collections for your horror writing, romantic writing and children’s writing. If someone is just interested in your horror writing, they can follow that collection and only see those posts. Collections allow people to follow the news they’re most interested in without being overwhelmed by a lot of other updates.
EMBED PLUS ONE IN WEBSITE
Using Google Plus share button is a good way to tell your readers, where you want them to share it. To get more Google+ followers, you can add your google plus profile and page badge on your site. This will allow frequent (or new) readers to head over to your Google Plus page and profile so they can keep up to date with all your latest posts.
