Welcome to the December edition of the Google+ Blog Hop! If you haven’t joined Google+ yet, we encourage you to do so….for you and your blog. This awesome social network is growing by leaps and bounds and the SEO benefits of membership are endless. We’re not the only ones that think so. This article by the well known website, Mashable.com, explains it best.
“Google’s social network Google+ has passed 500 million members, the company revealed in a blog post Thursday. Of these users, 135 million are said to be actively visiting the social network each month.”
We want to encourage you to use Google+ to help your blog and/or business grow. This blog hop is designed for YOU to meet new g+ friends, increase the exposure of your blog/business and allow you to “fill your circles”!
To join this g+ blog hop, link up your Google+ profile page URL (NOT your blog’s homepage). For the “name” section, use your name or your blog’s/website’s name. Use your personal photo or your blog’s/website’s button/logo for the thumbnail picture.
Important note: If you have problems linking up your profile page, try linking the “about” section of your profile page instead of the “posts” section. Also, problems loading a thumbnail picture usually can be solved by loading the picture directly from your computer instead of your g+ page.
You may link your g+ profile page at any of the blogs listed below:
In The Old Road (host)
The NY Melrose Family (host)
Nutmeg Place (co-host)
We would appreciate it if you would also follow the hosts of this blog hop (add them to your circles). All of the host’s g+ profile pages can be found at the top of the list.
This blog hop is only for g+ pages…please do not link up your blog’s url. We encourage the sharing of your personal, blog or business’ g+ (profile) page. After you link up your g+ profile page, please visit some of the other profiles that are linked up and add them to your circles. We want you to help your fellow bloggers’ g+ page grow!
