How to Make Your Google Plus Content Irresistible

Updated on August 9, 2012

Use Google Plus to Network

The Social Network Google Plus

With Google Plus as a growing social media machine, it is a great place for you to post content and to network for your business or for personal reasons. With irresistible content, you will begin to earn more views for your profile and clicks of your links. In turn, you get added to more circles, more engagement within Google Plus, and more views of posted content.

Increase your presence on the social media network and attract new clients by making your Google Plus content irresistible to users.

Build a Niche

A great way to make your content irresistible on the network is by building a niche there. Focus the material you post on your page toward a particular subject or field. You will become known as the "go-to" person for that subject by people who have you in their circles. As an example, I focus on social media and tips for writers on my profile page.

When you build a niche, your circles will start to look forward to your shares and expect specific information from you. You are making your Google Plus content irresistible to readers.

Variety of Online Content

Share Posts, Photos, and More on Google Plus

Another step toward creating irresistible content is to share a variety of forms of information. Mix up the ways you present your niche.

Examples of different Google Plus posts are:

  • Articles - Websites and Blogs
  • Photos
  • Videos
  • Infographics
  • Text posts typed directly into your profile's Share box

Posting with variety keeps your shares from becoming predictable. As well, some users will not have time to read an entire post but will enjoy a photo or infographic instead. Other times, posts are welcomed; be ready to deliver what your audience needs by providing variety to your Google Plus page.

As well, the different presentation of online information creates interest itself in your profile as there is balance to the appearance.

Consistent Posting to Google Plus

Another way to make your Google Plus content irresistible is to post on a regular schedule to the network. Avoid posting in large numbers one day and then being absent from the platform for days, only to appear and repeat the cycle.

Regular posts of quality information, spread regularly throughout the week, are great ways to form relationships with other users and maintain their attention. When you are absent, your profile is less likely to be accessed. In turn, your posts are less likely to be viewed and links are less likely to be clicked by users.

When you post consistently to the social media network, your name stays in the mind of your people within your circles. You create the appearance of being up-to-date in your chosen niche and you develop a reputation of being stable as a writer, photographer, or other profession.

Consistency lends itself to trust from users, who may begin a routine of regularly accessing your Google Plus profile. You are working toward creating irresistible content as page views of your online profile grow each day.

Intriguing Titles For Social Media Posts

Create a unique title for your Google Plus post. When you share information, avoid simply posting a link or photo. Provide a description of the content that intrigues other users. Make people understand that you have interesting material to share and entice them to click links on your profile.

When you attach a title of interest to your post, you make the material intriguing to users. For example, if you post "5 Things You Don't Know about Social Media", you could post the article with the title "I was shocked by #3; did you know this about social media?"

The question is intriguing as network users need to open the post to see what #3 is on the list. You are less likely to get clicks and reads if you do not even add a title.

You and Google Plus

You are well on your way to making your Google Plus content irresistible. While you may feel your content is quality without using these tips, that may be true, but people will not view your posts if you do not help them stand out from the crowd. The number of Google Plus users increase every day and you want to make your content irresistible. See you in the social media world; are you circling me yet?

      Consistency is key and interesting titles is also super important-agreed. You've outlined some helpful tips for using G+ and,although, I think it's still slow to growth, it's captivating more and more people.

      Hi ChristyWrites,

      I agree, Google+ is a useful platform that can really enhance the presence of online contents. I use Google+ and it is one site that i have come to like a lot. Voted up, useful and shared.

      Thanks Richard, appreciate the support!

      Glenn, it is true that you have to limit your time on social networks (I even wrote a hub about it!) but Google+ is rising in popularity and gaining influence. Choose a network that suits you, whether Google+ or not, to promote your writing and have a bit of fun too!

      I have yet to update to a Google+ account. I only have a regular Google profile for the purposes of claiming authorhip. I'm hesitant to start with Google+ because it's time-consuming to maintain another social network. But reading your hub is very motivating. I will have to reconsider it. The information you presented here is definitely very useful and I voted up.

      I have a Google+ account, but I still find it hard to mesh with. I'm already working with facebook, pinterest, and twitter for consistent posts. Perhaps I should force myself to work better with Google+? I still can't believe the explosion of social networks that are coming about!

      Again, Christy, this is a great hub and very informative!

      Teaches, I do find Google+ helpful for both reads and for networking. I think it depends how you use it. Some people post and then leave the network; as with other social marketing networks there needs to be interaction. If you join let me know and we will connect.

      Your post has made me think again about using Google Plus. Previously, from other sources, I heard that it was not worth looking in to as a social media site for marketing, etc. Good to know how much it actually helps. Voted up and interesting.

      It used to be that we would just submit articles to the article mills and they would do all of the work advertising them to generate the money that they make off of them; now, they want us to do that part too! And with revenue dropping like a politician's likability, it seems to me that those mills should be hiring people to market all of the articles on their sites...

      Alas, now we need sites like Facebook, Twitter and Google + in order to earn more than a penny or two per month, per article...

      Great post, Christy!

      Looks like I'm a bit behind the times, since I don't even use Google+ yet, but it looks like these tips are just as applicanle to Facebook as Google. I especially need to work on improving the status titles that go along with a link. I typically take the lazy way out and just put the link, but I like your suggestions.

      Another vote up for Christy! I'll share this one too. Aloha, Christy!
