Join Von Glitschka for an in-depth discussion in this video Improve SEO by using Google+, part of Social Media for Graphic Designers.
- [Instructor] Google + is, ironically, one of the best built and aesthetically pleasing social media platforms that hardly anyone uses. The only reason I post on Google + is to take advantage of any SEO Boost it may provide. I'll admit I have no absolute way of knowing if it helps SEO, but it take me all of 30 seconds to post on Google +, so I think I'll continue to air on the side of caution and share this platform nonetheless.
Let me show you my account. This is my page on Google +. Once again, it's associated with your Google account. If you have a Google account for Gmail and some of their other web services, then you're gonna have a Google + page. On this page, it has a header like other social media services, so I just upload a Super Doodle of mine, and if I scroll down, it gives you the capability of having little portfolios. Here's some miscellaneous art I've uploaded.
You can also see that I post redundant information that can be found on my regular Glitschka Studios website. It can be found on my other social media website. I post it here too, once again, to help discoverability. Now I'm not saying I get a lot of traffic on this. I just don't. You can see I've had a couple people who've liked it here and here, so not a whole lot of people, specifically creative people, even bother to scroll through or browse Google + to look for inspiration.
I use it, nonetheless, because it may make discoverability better. I'm not completely sure about that, but, literally, it only takes me 20 to 30 seconds after I have a post created on another platform to simply make a redundant post on this platform. That's why I use it. This is a very truncated overview, obviously, of how I use Google + for my business. If you want more exhaustive information, I encourage you to check out Google + for business, and we'll thoroughly cover all the various features and strategies you can use on this platform.
