How to Make Use of Google+ as an Author

Everyone wants to be listed high on Google’s search engine results.  You write a blog post, tweet, update your website or add otherwise content to the web.  Google bots, crawling the web, are coming across your post.  The page is indexed within seconds. Google estimates the domain and pages’ overall authority, based on links.

Page rank depends on a few factors, such as the number of Web pages that link to your site, the frequency of keywords within your site and how long your site exists on the internet.  However, with Google+ it’s completely different:  your presence at Google+ means you are high-ranked from the moment you post something on your Google+ timeline or your Google+ pages.

Use hashtags on Google+ too

Just like Twitter, Google+ offers  #hashtag benefits to make searching for topics easy. It’s a great way to get found, not only inside Google+, but in the larger world of Google search. If you create a separate page for each of your books and post frequently there, using keywords and  #hashtags, your books will appear prominently on Google’s Search Engine – making it easy for potential readers to find you.
Link to your blog posts
As the main search engine Google indexes and ranks its own site much higher than any other content. Google+ posts are easily indexed by Google search, and unlike tweets or Facebook posts, are treated much like regular web pages.  Whenever you have a new blog post, link to it from Google+, and make that post public. By doing this, you have made your post publicly available both inside Google+ and in Google search results worldwide.
Want engagement? Write resource-type articles
Google+ posts that receive the most comments are resource-type articles with a lot of links. Those covering Google+ how-to information are heavily shared, along with any tutorials. Write a killer post and link back to your own blog for additional resources. Use #hashtags with relevant topics so it’s easily found, and you have created an outstanding resource that will get you noticed, and will increase traffic to your blog.
Connect your profile with your blog’s homepage
The first step in getting results from Google+ is connecting your profile with your blog’s home page. This is the gateway step to claiming your content in the eyes of Google. It will also go far in generating incredible results, including displaying your photo next to your blog post links and a Wikipedia-style profile listing in Google search results whenever anyone searches for your name. For WordPress blog publishers, there’s a very easy way to accomplish this. Google+ shows you how to use Google+ “Direct Connect“.
Display your photo in Google search results
All you need is a Google+ page, and to connect it to the home page of your blog. See how important that #1 step was? Your photo will eventually appear next to your blog posts in Google search results.
What the Plus?
Take the time to learn Google+ (e.g. with Guy Kawasaki’s book What the Plus?) and engage with your community there. You’ll see results far beyond what any other social network can offer: both social engagement within Google+, and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) in Google.
