“Google+ is a ghost town”
“Only people on Google+ are those that use GMail.”
“I can’t seem to get any connection there. It’s obviously dead. What’s the point.”
I certainly am no Dustin Stout in my evangelistic pushing for Google+, but I’m also not a fool like those that will remain nameless that I copy/pasted their comments on Google+. I have found every contributor for my own blog on Google+, it houses a nearly 3,000 person and daily active Church Tech community, and has brought about nearly 90% of my consulting online. Yeah, “dead.”
How to Become a Google+ Wizard
If you actually want to try to use a great social media and not fall for the lies of people that are not giving it the right effort and time of day. Here are three great tips from the infographic below.
- Google+ has 300 million users and 1.2 billion visits per month, the most of any network. Yes, they might be on GMail at times, but Google+ is integrating into GMail and Google at nearly every point.
- There is something called Google+ Authority, that has been confirmed by Googlers. That means if you have people that find your content valuable and engage with you, you will rank higher on Google searches which means more web traffic.
- Use communities. Bloggers, you need inspiration? You cannot get more than this. Techies, need help? Ask a question and you WILL get an answer. Leadership, need reading options? You’ll get more than you need for the whole year.

Man, it’s too bad that Google+ is just not worth it… or may you are using it wrong!
