Improve Your Google+ Profile In 30 Seconds

Google+ is quickly becoming my favourite social network. It’s proving to be far superior to Facebook in a number of ways, in my opinion. Given the connection to Google, it goes without saying that participating comes with SEO benefits as well.

Although the network has been around for a while, it’s only been fairly recently that it’s really started to gain popularity. Each day I see new people jumping on board. If you’re one of those people there’s one very important step you need to take to improve your profile.

What Do You Do?marc-scott-google-plus

When you hover over a name in Google+ a pop up, for lack of a better term, appears. For all intents and purposes, this is the equivalent of your Google+ business card.

What does yours say?

Surprisingly, most, especially for newcomers, say absolutely nothing! And that means you’re missing out.

If people don’t know who you are or what you do, odds are they’re not going to Circle you. Miss out on being added to Circles and you have just missed out on expanding your network!

How To Add Your Job Title

When people hover over your name you’re going to want it to have your job title. This would be your keyword of choice. Voice Actor, Voice Artist, Voice Talent, Voice Over. Whatever it is that you use in your branding, you’re going to want it to say that.

You do NOT want your card to appear blank.
