Stop the insanity! Keep Google+ Community posts off your profile. - The Social Media Hat (Reblog)

Don't Spam Yourself on Google Plus

Many newbies who have created a Google Plus profile or page are anxious to share their links in Google Plus communities. This is a good thing, mainly because the G+ community membership usually far outnumbers the followers you have in your social circles.


  • Google Plus limits the number of followers to 5000 for personal profiles. (See Side Note below.)

  • Whereas, I've seen some G+ communities with over 50,000 members. Thus, there is more opportunity for exposure and hopefully getting traffic to your website or blog, if you share links via the communities.



* Important Social Media Tip!*
When you share the same post in several G+ communities, you need to turn off the feature that allows your post to also show up in your public post stream. Otherwise, when people visit your G+ profile or page, they will see multiple entries of the same thing over and over and over. You actually give the impression that you're spamming yourself.  It's a common mistake for newbies to make.

I get my social media tips from Mike Allton, publisher of The Social Media Hat blog.

He says: Don't spam yourself!!


Then he explains how to stop the insanity.

Side Note: Mike Allton's G+ professional profile boasts over 186,000 followers. The business page or brand account associated with his website/blog, The Social Media Hat, has over 8,000 followers.

Google offers professional or business profiles (may or may not be for a price) and those profiles show that you can have more than 5K followers. I don't have the details. If you want to know more, search for “Google My Business”.

By the way: Have any of you ever seen spam in that many different varieties? I would love to try the Hot &Spicy.

The Bing Bing BUY Button | Writedge (Tips for the Home Biz Entrepreneur)

This blog post supplies a summary update to my article The Bing Bing BUY Button | Writedge which was published July 2015.  The update is a contrast and comparison to my Pinterest experience.




Although The Bing Bing site has a lot of good features, it falls way behind Pinterest in search engine ranking. Pinterest has introduced “RichPins” (same as The Bing Bing Buy button), they allow users to convert personal accounts to business accounts, and account holders can also “Promote Pins”.  For this reason, as a home biz entrepreneur, most of my social media marketing efforts are devoted to maintaining my Pinterest profile. 





Create Web Page with Netboard.me | Writedge is a related or similar article published March 2015 about another site which was presented as a Pinterest alternative.  Though the features of Netboard are different from The Bing Bing, the above update results in me making the same decision to choose Pinterest.
