Hey guys. Based on yesterday's post, it's clear that there are many that don't know how to use Google Plus well, or they are intimidated, or just haven't gotten started. So, I thought I'd share a tip of day to help the AR community out.
Google Plus is actually not hard to use at all...if you jump in you'll find that to be the case. Believe me. And, you don't need to spend that much time there. Make it a goal to spend 5 minutes a day on it.
This is a VERY busy time for me (thanks in part to my blog doing so well as well as Angie's list and lots of repeat customers). So, I'm very limited right now in doing my true flooring posts, so I thought instead, I'm do some quick tidbits here on Google Plus. My goal is to do 1 simple tip per day for a week. Not sure that I can actually keep up w/ this, but maybe it will be every other day...or whenever I get to it.
So, today's tip: If you care about SEO and your posts being found, always post to PUBLIC. If you only post to your circles (or a circle), your post will be private. And, that means that google will not index it, and that means that it is doing nothing for your SEO. It is the equivalent of posting a members only post on AR or not being a rainmaker. Only members will see it. The public will not see it. Your clients will not see it. And, while there area a few exceptions, usually, the point of all of this is to be found on Google.
