So, is it beneficial to put yourself, your friends and everyone else you know inside of a google circle?
Do google circles hold any weight?
The answer is a yes and a not…and a I’m not sure maybe!
You see, if people are in your circle and you share something like a YouTube video (which google loves by the way), then you might find more traffic coming to the site you advertise.
BUT….(and it’s a big but…like mine right after I had a kid) it really depends on your circle. If you have 1 person in your circle…well..then you’re not going to get a lot of traffic from that post.
However…thousands and maybe even a million in a google circle? Then it might be very reasonable to expect a lot more traffic creeping up on your site. IMagine if they share…and then it’s shared again after that?
A ripple effect?
Isn’t that how things work in this world? If I want to boost one of my friend’s auto body’s sites (http://www.beavercountycollision.org) then I share it, just like I just did right there. You can beg for shares, you can share in a google circle.
Really..it doesn’t matter how you share. You just have to get your name out there. Getting your name out in the written word is perhaps one of the most important aspects of today’s internet marketing world.
So..back to the question….does linking to google circles and focusing your time on adding people to your circle beneficial?
The answer has to be maybe. Google rewards people who use their stuff. It’s like taking an investment out on their Google economy (which can be very lucrative).
You have to do it diligently and you have to ask yourself if you are willing to use all of your time finding ways to get more followers over spending time building quality websites.
I believe a little bit of both is good. I truly believe if I put out a good website and I believe in what I’m sending out there, then the universe will thank me and send me back some views…and those views start a little ripple that eventually will grow larger and larger and I naturally gain followers.
I don’t gain followers because I’m desperate or that it is my intention to have people pay attention to me. That’s not my goal.
I get followers because I take the time to provide something useful and genuine.
I set it all out on a plate and I don’t let anything darken or cover the immaculate light that I’ve been given with the ability to type and reach people through words.
So..Google? Yes…it’s good to me. ..but I am good back and there in lies the secret to success. Karma will be good.
