    3. Get Involved – Engage in Communities

    Communities are very different than Circles. Communities are groups online – kind of like really modern, interactive forums. For a business you can also think of them like a huge marketplace where you can branch out and network with customers. Communities may not give you the same personal interaction as a trade show – but they’re a lot easier and less expensive to get to!

    For example you want to get involved in community about passive income:

    Here’s a walk through of how to use G+ Communities to drive traffic to your blog site:

    > Search ‘passive income’

    > Join a few of the groups that are most relevant to your blog.

    > Take part in the dialogues that are happening.

    > Comment on the updates, share posts you like and +1 them.

    > Once you’ve started to establish yourself, post links to your blog in your niche passive income Communities.

    Tip #3: Do not spam your blog links. Instead take time to establish your credibility by answering questions by others or just interacting with them. Remember, you are also here to help others. If you give, eventually you will receive.

      1. You have a lot of good information there. I had recently started a blog and have been in the process of trying to learn how to promote it better. What’s the point if there isn’t anyone reading any of the content right. I have a better idea of what I need to do now, thanks!

        • Hi there! Promoting your blog is the next step after you made the articles in your website. You are right that what’s the sense of writing content if there’s no one who reads it. I am glad that I have gave you an idea on how to promote your blog. Google plus is just one of the many ways on how you can do it.

      2. Hi, thanks for this, it’s just what I needed. I’ve tried promoting my blog through other social sites such as Facebook with little results.

        I’ve been wondering about Google+ but haven’t been able to get my head around it to be honest. Circles, communities just baffled me until I read this.

        Can I ask, do you see much traffic to your own blog from Google+??

        • Hi Lee! I’m glad that I cleared any doubts in your mind about Google plus. About your question, I am not getting much traffic from Google+ but It’s just recent that I learned that when you promote your posts in Google+ you will directly see your site in the first page of google. I mean, getting into the first page of google means more chance of attracting people, eventually leads to higher traffic right? That’s the major benefit that I see from promoting blog in Google+. If you have more questions, just send me an email at marurico93@gmail.com

      3. Hi John:

        Great tutorial on how to get your blog noticed on Google+. I especially like your idea about joining Google communities related to your interests and niche and what your topic for your blog covers. Is a Google + Business page different than a regular Google+ account?

        You have an easy to follow way of showing your readers how to become noticed. I enjoyed following your step by step instructions. You are a good teacher. Keep up the good work.

        • Hi Stephanie! Thanks! I really want to provide simple but concise steps for the readers to understand the topic well. I mean, Why complicate life if we can make it easy right?
