This completes my week of daily tips on Google Plus. I did it - one week of very simple tips. I believe those that have been following would agree that these are easy to implement. And, below are links to all of them.
Today's tip is about your profile...I can't believe I forgot the basics. Get your profile optimized. First, make sure you've included your picture! It should be a picture of your face...not only because people connect best to that, but also because google authorship requires a picture of a person - not a logo, not a pet, not a team or group - just you. So, if you care about having your picture show up in google, this is a mandatory.
Also, may sure you have a background picture, and info about you - like what you to and your geography, key words. Include links back to your website and Active Rain profile and any other important places you can be found on the web (e.g. LI, FB, Twitter, Pinterest, etc). Feel free to look at mine for inspiration and/or others. Often, this will lead you to some ideas on how you can optimize.
