  8. 8. What is Google+? Google+ is a platform that allows you to connect and interact with other individuals from around the world whilst publishing and sharing digital content. It is all about connecting with people that share your same interests as opposed to people you might know in real life, which is what Facebook is all about. Google+ is the search giant's most recent attempt to create a social network that rivals Facebook. Google launched Google+ on June 28, 2011 with a private beta. The project was led by Google's Senior Vice President of Social Vic Gundotra. The social network is a collection of different social products. These features include Stream (a newsfeed for content, text, images, links and video), Sparks/What's Hot (a recommendation engine), Hangouts (a video chat service, and broadcasting platform), Circles (a friend management service, filter and CRM), Communities (networking/lead generation), Events (market upcoming events), Pages (allow businesses to share thoughts, links, photos and promotions), Local (for business reviews and recommendations), Games and Photos. Google chose to name the information-sharing platform Google+ because the service is "an extension of Google itself". This is not Google's first attempt at dominating the social space. It has a long history in social media including social networking service Orkut, launched in 2004, and its biggest success in the social sphere, the 2006-acquired video-sharing behemoth YouTube. This history also includes big flops: Google Wave and Google Buzz. Slide: 8
  9. 9. How Many Users on Google+? • Be found not just on Google in search… (Bing, Yahoo!, local search,…) • Facebook • YouTube • Google+ • Twitter • LinkedIn • Tumblr • Instagram • Pinterest September 2014 • Over 1 billion G+ users • 300+ million monthly active users • 63% of G+ users are men • 1.5 billion pictures are uploaded to G+ every week • 20 million unique mobile monthly users • 7 minutes average monthly time spent on G+ • 3:46 minutes average duration of a G+ visit • 22% of online adults visit G+ at least once a month • 32.9% of total social logins on websites using G+ Slide: 9
  10. 10. Your Business in the SERPs • Maximise your online footprint, or the visible screen real-estate your business results take up within Google’s SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages) with a trifecta of results; three places to secure your brand – PPC, Organic and Maps. • Add to your company’s Rich Snippet (title+description), to include the Google Map location, Reviews and Google+ Page link. Slide: 10
  11. 11. The impact of Google+ to SEO • Google+ impacts search results through personalisation. For example, if someone is following you on Google+, the chances that they will see your posts in Google's SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages) is increased. • When people +1 an article it is more likely to show up for them within the SERPs, but it's also more likely to show up for everyone they follow! 1. People who follow me on Google+ are more likely to see it. 2. People who follow anyone who +1's the content are more likely to see it. • Therefore if you can build a strong audience of your own, or if major influencers in your market +1 or share your content, this can get you a lot more exposure to your target market. Slide: 11
  12. 12. The impact of Google+ to SEO • As well, this seems to extend across the Google ecosystem, and it appears that people you exchange Gmails with can also create this type of connection that leads to the personalisation of results. • Content originally created in Google+ such as posts, and YouTube videos from Hangouts can rank highly in the SERPs for your brand, and keywords. • Google+ shared links do seem to also have an impact on the search results when combined with other signals. Some links in Google+ are in fact "followed" links which allow PageRank to flow. • One of Google's more recent Search Engine algorithm updates - Hummingbird, is aimed at allowing Google to better process signals other than links, such as signals from social platforms. Social signals are important as they deliver sentiment and popularity information around a brand, which Google's algorithm can use, and replaces the emphasis on biased link building activities by SEOs in the past. • Keep in mind that Google gets the information you supply from Google+ directly. Unlike Facebook and Twitter, there is no crawling involved in this process. Google+ also is continuing to grow, and it is strategic to Google's plans. This also means that posting new content to G+ will get it noticed and indexed faster. Slide: 12
  13. 13. Google My Business • Google Map Locations for businesses, the old ‘Google Places’ is now known as Google My Business. But it is now more that just a management console for your business location details… The Dashboard integrates: Location, Google+, Insights for your Business, Review Management, Google Analytics for your website, YouTube, Adwords Express, and even the ability to start a Hangout video call. https://www.google.com.au/business/ Slide: 13
  14. 14. Google My Business • With tight integration of Google+ for your business into the Google ecosystem, Google is encouraging your participation in their social network. Slide: 14
  15. 15. Provide a Virtual Tour • Extend your Google My Business profile with quality photos and a 360 degree panagraphic virtual tour of your business location. • https://www.google.com.au/maps/@- 31.9436888,115.8449148,3a,75y,21.1h,90t/data=!3m5!1e1!3m3!1s2ImauMZ9- cUAAAQfCTnIDA!2e0!3e2!6m1!1e1 Slide: 15
  16. 16. Google Adwords • Remember that you can also connect your business location (Address), and reviews, with Google Adwords Extensions, providing additional functionality such as directions for users searching on smart phones to be able to locate and get to your business, or for those consumers looking for ‘social proof’ through reviews to see what it is like to do business with your organisation. http://google.com.au/adwords Slide: 16
  17. 17. Google Analytics • The social data hub is a free platform that social networks and other social platforms can use to integrate their activity streams— like +1, votes, and comments—with Google Analytics. https://www.google.com/analytics – Enable your social network to be visible to marketers, publishers and analysts using Google Analytics – Promote a broad, comprehensive and inclusive picture of the global social media landscape – Advance accessible measurement of all social media platforms and activities Slide: 17
  18. 18. YouTube and Google+ • When you create a new YouTube channel, Google will require you to either create a new Google+ account or associate your businesses Google+ account to YouTube. It is important that this is coordinated, as you only have a two-week window when setting up an account to be able to change the Google+ account association before it locks in. This is a common issue, and leads to the generation of additional unnecessary and uncoordinated G+ accounts for some businesses. https://www.youtube.com/ Slide: 18
  19. 19. Webmaster Tools • The Search Engines are incorporating Social Signals - BWT (Bing Webmaster Tools) continues to evolve to include information on the social media accounts associated to the business website. Have you linked your Google+ account yet? Do you have both Google and Bing Webmaster Tools set up for your business? Ask us how! Slide: 19
  20. 20. Brand Consistency • Before we delve into preparing to do business online… research and do the due diligence, to determine a consistent brand approach (name and logo) to avoid confusion and conflict to the brand. • NameChk: http://namechk.com/ • Knowem: http://knowem.com/ Slide: 20
  21. 21. Secure Your Name • Proverb: Failing to plan is planning to fail • You may not use them today, but secure them for tomorrow! Slide: 21
  22. 22. Style Guide • Generate a ‘Style Guide’ for your online business • Research your target demographic to develop your ideal ‘persona’ • Determine your ‘Tone of Voice’, type of language used and how you will come across • Consistent naming convention for account creation • Consistent brand approach for use of logo, hero images, fonts and colours • Prepare business descriptors for use in ‘About’ biographies • Look to incorporate target keyword strategy throughout Slide: 22
  23. 23. Your Social Media Policy • To maintain our company's open, honest and transparent approach, and our genuine personality, we’ve set out a few Guidelines and Policies to follow. They should be read and followed by all staff, and especially anyone who updates a Social Media profile for our company. • Our Social Media objectives – Have fun. If you enjoy what you do, they will too! – Respect the audience. Even if their opinions differ. – Be timely. Social Media is about NOW. – Know when and what to post. Right message, right time. Be mindful of situations where you need approval signoff before responding or posting. – Leave competitors to it. They may talk about us, but the best response is no response. – Act responsibly. Do us proud and keep it honest. Don’t post negative comments, avoid inflating feedback with other profiles and importantly never leak confidential business information • Remember to follow these policies – Keep it quiet – never discuss company or customer details. This includes subjects like sales figures, customer details, internal policies, complaints, staff members or incidents. – Keep it nice – Never refer to our company or others in a way that is defamatory, harassing or indecent. – Keep it private – Never reference any clients, customers or trade partners without obtaining their permission to do so. – Keep it real – Never post online on behalf of the company or competitors (under your own name or anonymously) unless it’s part of your job role or you’ve been given permission to do so. – Keep it calm – if you’re in a bad mood, or someone riles you, take a step back and come back to it later. – And finally, remember to keep it cool – We know you love social media as much as we do, but remember your social media usage shouldn’t interfere with your job. Usage may be reviewed and monitored by your Manager. Slide: 23
  24. 24. Create a Google+ Account • Sign-up up at: https://plus.google.com/ • If you already have a Gmail account, then you will most likely already have a G+ account. Slide: 24
  25. 25. Google+ on SmartPhones Slide: 25 • The free Google+ APP is available on iOS, Android, Windows Phone and other devices. Download and keep engaged with your stream, whilst posting real-time content along with images from your phone’s camera, and writing reviews.
  26. 26. Google+ on Tablets Slide: 26 • The free Twitter APP is available on iOS, Android and many other popular tablet platforms and is just a larger responsive design format scaled from the smart-phone user interface..
  27. 27. Your Profile in Google+ • Before connecting with people, make sure that you have an impressive profile that can attract people’s attention. Set up a clear headshot or company logo, and choose an attractive image as the ‘Cover Photo’. For brands it is important to consider consistency across your channels. Slide: 27
  28. 28. Circles in Google+ • People See who you have connected to, and who have you in their circles… following you back. • Create a separate circle for people whose posts you want to follow. • Google+ Circles are the very fabric for connecting with other users on the network. Unlike a “Facebook Friend” that forces both parties to maintain an equal relationship, a Circle works more like a one way street. By adding you to my circles, I am saying that I am interested in what you have to say. However by doing this, you will not see anything I publish, until you add me back. This gives all G+ users much more control over how they make connections. • Add in Whole Circles. Search for hashtags and ‘circle’ together and add those. Eg. ‘#SEO Circles’. This can be a quick way to gain more followers adding you back. • Use the Google+ search bar to access not only your content, connected content, but Communities. Slide: 28
  29. 29. Hashtags # • Use hashtags (#) to focus tweets on topical keywords, or brand name. • Regularly post with hashtags. • Don’t over do the amount of hashtags implemented within a post. (no more than 3) • Keep an eye on trending topics and particular #tags, and blend these into your posts. • http://www.hashtags.org/ • Hashtags can be used as keyword links within Google+, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. • But please, #stop #hashtagging #every #word. #It #looks #terrible #and #does #nothing #for #your #social #presence (except you may start losing followers) #stopit. Slide: 29
  30. 30. Add People in Google+ • Click on the Add People icon to connect and follow others. Google+ provides recommendations based on your interests and other connections. When you Add a person to follow, you will be able to add them to your Circles (one or more) at that time. Slide: 30
  31. 31. Your Story in Google+ • Your Story… it’s about you! Fill in your Tagline, Introduction, and Bragging rights sections. Keep in mind ‘keywords’ and location information. Sell yourself, just like a LinkedIn profile, and outline your strengths and interests. Slide: 31
  32. 32. Your Work History in Google+ • Work What is your current role and position. List your skills (keywords), and outline your Employment history. Slide: 32
  33. 33. Your Education in Google+ • Education List the schools you have attended so that you can connect with the Alumni from these institutions. Just like LinkedIn you don’t need to go back to Primary School, but focus on your tertiary participation if possible. Slide: 33
  34. 34. Basic Information in Google+ • Basic Information You can choose what you want to have displayed or visible. Slide: 34
  35. 35. Profile walk through in Google+ • Places Where you live, where you work. You can choose whether you want this information visible. Slide: 35
  36. 36. Links in Google+ • Links Discoverability! Cross-Pollination… provide the means for people to find out about you on other social media channels or online locations. They can then choose to follow your content where they want to. • Encourage Search Engines to find your associated profiles and content. Slide: 36
  37. 37. Profile walk through in Google+ • Apps with Google+ Sign-in Control what external third-party applications have access to your Google+ account, and what information that they can gather or use. Slide: 37
  38. 38. Posts in Google+ • The Google+ Wall / Feed / Stream Slide: 38
  39. 39. Posts in Google+ • Long content works well in Google+. Links in your content will bring up associated images from the website reference in question (like how Facebook handles links). Control who your post goes out to through the selection of your Circles. • Constant and regular ongoing commitment to Google+ obtains results. • Don't post in a single burst, but spread throughout a day. • Key times for interactions are when people are able to be more social, particularly in evenings. • On Google+, it is really easy to segregate who you want to share your information with. • Being active in any social network is the key to success and Google+ is no different. You need to check your account regularly, share valuable information and comment on people’s posts. Slide: 39
  40. 40. Photos in Google+ • One Picture is Worth a Thousand Words. • Dozens of studies and experiments prove that users are more attracted by amateur pictures that look true-to-life, though they can miss a polished glamorous look. • As James Chudley put in his guide on using photos to sell: • Show off your product’s benefits • Make visitors laugh • Tell a story and show how to do something (step-by-step guides with pictures simply rock!) • Be consistent and professional. Slide: 40
  41. 41. Videos in Google+ • More user engagement is achieved in posts through video. Upload via your smart-phone, a Google+ Hangout, YouTube, or edited video content from your desktop. Slide: 41
  42. 42. Notifications in Google+ • See how users are interacting with you via your Notifications in Google+, that provides a quick summary of actions performed. You can also mark all as read via the icon in the top right. Slide: 42
  43. 43. +1 content on Google+ • See what content you have liked (+1) using Google+ from the web, blog, EDMS, or within the Google+ channel. Use it like your ‘favourites’ to refer back later on, and get ideas from others about their content recommendations. • This is the ‘Engagement’ factor of Google+, so not only +1 content you like, but share it and add your own commentary and views about the content that they have posted. • Performing a +1 is the equivalent of liking something on Facebook. Keep an eye out for the little red ‘+1’ button around the web, particularly on blog posts and other shareable content. If you’re signed in to your Google+ account while you’re browsing the web you can +1 content you like. Slide: 43
  44. 44. Reviews on Google+ • See all the places/businesses that you have reviewed, and where you have been. Provides a source of information for others as recommendations to try. Slide: 44
  45. 45. Local in Google+ • Search for local businesses, find reviews of businesses, see what your connections recommend, and leave your own reviews of where you have been. Ties into Google Maps on smart-phones. Slide: 45
  46. 46. Events in Google+ • Broadcast your event invitation, date, time, location, and information to select circles. • Events are often great social and networking opportunities to meet new people and engage particular through the live comments. Slide: 46
  47. 47. Events in Google+ • Let others know you are coming and register to attend events, and as well as Hangouts on Air. • You can even invite people to your Event via an email address, aside from just their Google+ user name. With the Google Calendar integrating with Google+, any event you agree to go to will automatically show up in your calendar and even send you notifications about the event. Slide: 47
  48. 48. Hangouts in Google+ • Hangouts provides you with the means to connect with people on Google+, and also work collaboratively in teams. A Google+ Hangout is a video conference for up to 10 people in total (including yourself) that can be from anywhere in the world.
