Take my Google +1 Button .... please

By
Real Estate Agent with Desert Gold Realty - Mesquite NV Homes For Sale Mesquite NV Realtor

I have been having a good time playing around on Google +1 .... met some new folks, and have seen quite a few Active Rain bloggers there - and when I see an AR blogger, I add them to one of my Circles.

Google +1 - Virginia Hepp - Mesquite RealtorWhat I have not seen around here is signatures on AR blogs with a Google +1 Button that links to your Google Profile.  Anybody have any cute buttons?  If not -Take mine.

This little button links to my Google +1 Profile.  Click on it and check it out!

I added the button to my signature on my AR blog and AR outside blog - see below.  My Google profile merged right into my G +1 profile, when I joined +1, so there is only one profile.

Even if you are not using +1 yet, or maybe you never will ....

You still should have a Google Profile set up with your picture and contact info.  At least.  Better yet, add some search engine friendly keywords to your Google Profile with links to your AR blog, AR profile, website.

Google is going to be busting at the seams with profiles soon - so get a head start on that excellent SEO.  Your Google profile will be very important very soon.

G +1 ButtonI think (hope) that AR will be adding the PLUS ONE Button option to our blogs.

In the meantime, my AR outside blog feeds onto one of my website pages, and I added the Plus 1 Button to that webpage.  Now when my AR outside blog, the Mesquite NV Real Estate Blog comes up in searches, it has the +1 button on it.  Cool!

But the button is not actually on my blog.  Not sure why that works.

I am waiting for Debbie Gartner to figure this out for me - because, as far as G +1 stuff on Active Rain, Debbie is The Googe.

And if YOU are on G +1 - add your profile link in the comments so that I can add you to my AR Circle!  :)

Thanks, Virginia!  It comes up second on others' searches as well.  I don't know why that is but, I'm definitely okay with that!  Thanks for the email too...I've got some work to do--obviously!  :-)

Donne!!!  You would love some of the discussions on +1.  And you would add to them, no doubt.

Debe - 2 is very good - that is a huge market with strong competition.

Barbara-Jo - more fun than Facebook, and more useful ...

Gary - all the techies on Plus 1 kinda scare me.  NO Clue what they are talking about on most of their posts.

Kathy - my web girl (daughter :) checked it out and said go!

Gail - are you using a gmail address?  If you send me your address, I will add you to one of my circles in Plus, then invite you from within - worked another time.

You rock!  Now I have to remember which AR member made my nice raindrop buttons and see if he'll help out again. I'm on Google + but really have not put a lot of time into it yet.  I think we might be connected already, but I'll check!

Howdy and morning to you Virginia

Virginia, I sure would add a Google Plus button on my blogs here in the AR community.

Every time I go to the page to sign up, I keep getting, Right now we're testing with a small number of people, but it won't be long before the Google Plus project is ready for everyone. This has been going on for two and a half months now. I keep leaving my e-mail address. But yet I keep reading about folks here at AR have just join the Google Plus site. Maybe I'll get to join it one of these here days.

Have a good one

Georgina - I have you circled.

Dale - if you would like ... send me your email address, I can first add you to one of my circles, then send you an invite.  If you have a Google profile already and a Gmail address, that should get you in.

Deb - I will go make sure we are connected!

I think I fixed the button on the bottom of my AR posts to go to my profile now... then again that is what I thought I did originally too.  Thanks for the heads up Virginia.

Virginia, I have been scouring the interwebs for a few hours looking for the most appealing icon buttons for all the social media sites.  I really like the ones you are using.  You are a trailblazer, keep up the good work!

Can you please give a link to that whole set of source images?  If I can't get that library, I will need to create a t for tumblr icon-button ... I have an experimental tumblog at inetmore.TUMBLR.com. Tumblr is a very good site for easy blogging, ranked at #49 in Alexa. Always looking for good places to get SEO links, and other domains are very important.

I have subscribed to your blog, btw.

Maureen - you did.

George - thanks, I have no idea where these buttons come from - I think my daughter makes them.  She does my website and stuff like the buttons.  I will have to check out TUMBLER again, thanks!

Virginia, You are very fortunate to have a great Internet Marketing resource in your daughter!  TUMBLR.com is simple yet powerful tool for SEO and networking, in between the bare bones of TWITTER and the power of ActiveRain.

George - I really do have an asset with Annie on board.

Maureen - I +1'd your site on a search results page - I think that is the best way to do it.
