Google Plus is a different kind of social media network. In truth, Google Plus isn’t a social media network at all, but rather the “Social Layer” of the Google enterprise.

Google Plus is the fabric that binds all Google platforms. It’s our history of authority…

…and whether by design or destiny Google Plus has attracted a more sophisticated audience.

We can’t share content on Google Plus the same way we do on Twitter or Facebook. We need to give our Google Plus audience a reason to +1, comment, share and ultimately follow our link. This engagement is crucial to building our authority within the Google Plus platform.

The following video outlines four critical features of every Google Plus update or post. The process isn’t complicated, nor is it time consuming, but it does take a little thought and consideration for the individuals with which you are sharing your content.

Here is a simple breakdown of each Google Plus update feature:

  • Short attention grabbing headline in BOLD using “*” marks
  • 2-3 sentence description of the content you’re sharing and why it’s important
  • Include the raw link inside the update description
  • Add a call-to-action
  • BONUS: Always add hashtags to make your content easy to find

By building out your Google Plus updates and posts in this manner you’ll see a drastic increase in the amount of engagement you receive on each share.

This video is part of new series using the hashtag #googleplusfriday which is dedicated to helping people thrive on Google Plus. Much of the information we begin with will be basic, but as the content library grows we’ll start address deeper topics.

    Great tips! Do you think there’s any advantage in uploading a photo with your copy and the link instead of just the link and letting Google pull in the preview?

    • Ryan Hanley


      There definitely is. People respond to great images and click through the link you place in the description box if you copy is compelling enough.

    Thank you for writing this article, I think it’s clear it is not aimed at people who already have got to grips with Google+ with lots of people in their stream. It made a lot of sense if I were to send this to one of my friends who doesn’t understand why you would use G+!

    • Ryan Hanley

      Thanks Lei,

      That is exactly who it’s geared at the G+ novice who’s looking to get a hold of the platform.

      Appreciate you stopping by.

    Good tips! Also, don’t forget about the “Psychology” that you can use to drive traffic as well! Great post again my friend!

    • Ryan Hanley


      You’re so right dude. So much of what we do is about psychology.
