Boosting Google Plus followers and engagement

Google Plus is a growing social network people can conquer, and many believe there is no way you can get as much interaction as you can on Facebook but thousands will disagree with this.

Using a dataset of over 8.9 million posts from nearly 10k profiles and pages, CircleCount found a few ways to get more comments, shares and +1s. So many G Plus users have said to me why they are not getting comments, +1s or reshare, but my answer to that is simple – What are you doing and how are you doing it?

It does not matter if you are using G Plus for business or personal, engagement is engagement, and doing the right thing will help. The infographic below shows the most shared posts are ones with photos, in fact 57% of posts with photos are shared more than anything else, others shared includes links 27%, 8% of posts shared include videos and 6% of shares include text.

So it clearly shows with the stats shown below posts with photos will get more comments, reshares and +1s. When compared to the average post, by posting photos it got 149% more +1s, 136% more comments and 133% more reshares – So it proves people are in favor of the visual content rather than text.

But rather interestingly the infographic shows that overall; posts containing more than 100 characters had a better engagement rate in comparison to all other posts with less than 100 characters. So in terms of interaction and engagement it makes sense to do posts with a photo and over 100 characters.

The infographic below by CircleCount is very informative indeed – Are you getting enough interaction on Google Plus?

    But why would anyone want to? Google plus is a failed experiment grown artificially large by Google’s incessant insistance of membership to accomplish anything in the android world.

    Without the requirement to join Plus in order to post app reviews in the Play store, etc the Plus network would certainly be much smaller, and rightfully so.
