Google+ Business PagesGetting started with Google+ Business Pages

Google+ integrates social services such as Google Profiles and Google Buzz, and introduces new services identified as Circles, Hangouts and Sparks. Google+ is available as a website and on mobile devices.

Sources such as The New York Times have declared it Google’s biggest attempt to rival the social network Facebook, which has over 800 million users.

On November 7, 2011, Google launched Google+ Pages, which will let businesses connect with fans in a manner similar to Facebook Pages.

These businesses will receive corporate accounts to start sharing information about themselves and invite others to join in on the conversation.

Getting started with Google+ Business Pages

  1. Fill out the About page using your main keywords for better ranking of your page and website.
  2. Add some relevant photo’s across the top for dynamic on page engagement and to graphically display something about your business, there are some great ways to do this and I am still working on mine, for now I have some of my most important graphics in there…
  3. Put all your links into the area where you want to be found – MOST importantly your website
  4. Put the Google+ code onto your site so G+ can find you, associate your Business Page with your site and start the very important ranking, collating, crawling and SEO-ing that is to become the huge G+ PLUS!
  5. Create your first Circles and then find other great pages to Circle so you have someone to talk to – think about your circles… create circles so you can target updates and information just to them: Employees (no more memo’s or inhouse emails), Customer/client circles, Top Customers/Clients, Customers/Clients in specific regions, Possible collaborations…, Top News Makers in your niche (to share)…
  6. Start talking, plusing etc…
  7. Share your page – this creates a post about your page on your Google+ Profile.
  8. Start a Hangout – live video Google chat with anyone: again think customers/clients, employees, influencers… – and Google chat is one of the clearest and most reliable video chat apps I have ever used

What’s Different About Google+ Pages from your G+ Profile?

  • Pages can’t add people to circles until the page the user has first Circled or mentioned the page in a post.
  • Pages can be made for a variety of different entities including public figures, businesses, brands, products, charities… whereas profiles can only be made for people.
  • The default privacy setting for elements on your page profile is public.
  • Pages have the +1 button. The +1 Button is so much more than a Facebook Like Button – the +1 Button is about enhancing your visibility on the largest search engine in the world!
  • Pages can’t +1 other pages, nor can they +1 stuff on the Web so using Google ‘as your page’ is just like Facebook relegated to on page activities like Circling (Liking), Commenting, Posting.
  • You cannot play games as your Page.
  • Pages cannot share to ‘Extended circles’.
  • Pages don’t receive notifications via email, text, or in the Google bar… at the moment.
  • Pages can’t hangout on a mobile device.
  • Local pages have special fields that help people find the business’ physical location via your Google Places account.
