Google Plus & A + Online Marketing Tool

After being used to Face Book which in my opinion was first to open doors of social networking I was bit sceptical about Google + whence it was introduced. Probably brought about to compete with the universally popular FB the networking site G+ had a slow rise. 

G+ however did not lag behind albeit its did not prove to as good as FB regarding user engagement, however it has come out good for content marketing.  In fact at the initial stage users spent just few minutes on G+ as compared to FB where they spent few hours. 

G+ managed to subscribe to users very quickly and could garner as many 500 million plus by 2013 but the platform did not find that many users. I think the quick rise in subscriber base was due googles connected services on one single platform. Notebly USA and India have the largest user base at Google Plus.  

The FB page has a simpler interface which an average user can master quickly while the G+ interface requires getting familiar with, but then the impact is much better and colorful. Unlike FB the probability of social interactions is much less on G+ but nevertheless it is excellent as far as niche users and webmasters are concerned. As the time goes by it will get prominence for promoting contents used in marketing online. 


Like in any other networking site the platform offers profile creation with an about us section and a cover photo. All your details are in the About Us section: Contact, Sites, Albums etc.

The profile page shows your activities like posting of articles, videos and images. 

The above link constitutes a Google Plus Page


All your collections are located here. A collection is of niche contents under one head. Hence you post similar articles, blog entries and images pertaining to one collection that is best suited. If you make a collection on Indian Wildlife than all your content on Indian Wildlife goes here.

Collections belonging to others are also listed probably the one's you are following. This is followed by a list of communities which you have subscribed to. Then follows articles and blog entries that you have recently submitted to your collections or G+ Home.

At Circle Stream you can click on a circle to see contents promoted by the people there. These posts are from the communities. There is no limit as to how many people you can add to your circles or how many people you can add in this network unlike in Face Book.


All the posts have comment and like features as in other networking portals.The plus one button is used to like posts on this networking site.   There are many other features on G+ which one comes to understand whence moving deeper into the portal. 


This is like Face Book Home where you get assemblage of all posts based on G+ algorithms. Added advantage is that you can search for niche posts from the search box on the top.
