Happy Monday! And February is HERE!!
This year is going by waay too fast!
Ok, a little update about this blog.. I officially changed my Google+ page. You can now find a link to this blog and many others on my new Google+ page. It took me a while to get it together, because I have been working on 3 NEW projects, not to mention a NEW idea for a book..
I will let you know about one of my new ideas as soon as I've got more information for you..
In general, this year (a whole months worth) has been pretty amazing. I have been able to accomplish one goal, and slowly coming close to accomplishing my second goal, and its ONLY February! So, I am pretty excited.
Check out my list of Goals I want to accomplish this year!
One of the things that I wanted to work on is establishing a presence online for my blogs.
Every blogger knows that when you have more than one blog, things can get a little confusing, if not complicated.
After doing much research, I have come to realize just how unbelievably important it is to properly set up a Google+ page for your blog or website, ESPECIALLY if you do what I do, and that is- Create an income straight from your blog.
This weekend, I updated all of my social networks, and I linked this blog (my main blog) to all of my websites and work. So, people no longer have to search for, and Google my name. Now, its automatic.
Needless to say, my traffic is now out of control.
By the way- Thank you so much for stopping by!! I appreciate you!
Your Google+ Profile and Page
It is UNBELIEVABLY easy to create or update your Google+ profile. This is a GOLDMINE for traffic, especially if you want to increase your sales.
One of the first things that I did was update my Current work as this Blog, and other blogs that I am also contributing to. This has not only been a key to my traffic, but it has also increased my traffic to my other blogs.
My Bio and tagline is also different. Many people leave this blank, but I wanted people to know a little bit more about me.
My picture is staying the same for now, but I am currently working on taking more pictures and picking out at least one new one for both my blog and social networks.
The results from your hard work.
Like I mentioned before, setting up my Google+ page for my blog has given me more traffic. Why? Because I put all my business information directly on my page, helping my work get searched more and indexed faster.
The one thing I have learned about getting more traffic to my blog is "the more traffic my blog gets, the faster I get Indexed". Its simple, but it takes a lot of time and strategy.
Google+ is not only convenient, but its also quite necessary, especially if you want to take your business seriously.
If you are a freelance writer, or trying to be, updating your Google+ page can help you get indexed in search engines faster, and get attention faster.
If you offer a service, or services, Updating your Google+ profile can also help you display your business and create a path for prospects to contact you.
A tip when you update your Profile!
While there are several things that you can do to create a better looking profile, these are some of the things that have helped me improve my traffic and Google ranking.
- update your About info and Tagline- let people know who you are, and if you dont have a tagline, put up one of your favorite quotes. It doesnt always have to be about work.
- Update your "contribute to" section. This is generally a blog or website that you write for, e.i your blog. But if you contribute to writing websites, or are a guest blogger, put it on there. This gives you more control of where you want to send your readers to.
- Mention your Blog or website on your "About me" section. I mentioned this section in number 1, but there is another thing that you can do. Link your blog or website to this section of your Google+ profile. The very first thing that people read about is your About me section. Make it easier to send your audience to your work, and link your blog to this section. Talk about a time SAVER!
- Finally! Update your work. If now you have several new blogs, or you are focused on more than one business, then update your work. You can update the amount of links, and the type of links you have shared, and "Liked" on your Google+ profile. Simply go to the main page of your profile and click on "1's". This takes you directly to all of your links. You can update as you wish from there.
I hope this helps you in some way. Let me know how it worked for you!
