I can't sign in to my YouTube channel or Blogger blog! How to recover access. | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it

Are you having trouble signing in to YouTube or Blogger? If you created your channel or blog long ago, you may have even forgotten the email you used to sign in to the account. That can be quite frustrating, because that email address is your account's username.

 Fortunately there are options for recovering your Google account - and its associated YouTube channel and Blogger blogs - even if you don't recall your account's email username.

Why You Need to Focus A Little Bit More of Your Time On Google Plus Communities | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it

There are several major advantages that Google Plus business pages have over their counterparts on Facebook. While you shouldn’t neglect your Facebook page entirely, it is important to remain active and engaging on both pages.

 

Take advantage of some of these great Google Plus features.

How to Improve Social Media Marketing With a Google Plus Page

How to Improve Social Media Marketing With a Google Plus Page | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it
When we think about social media marketing and growing a businesses’ presence, we often consider each channel as one giant entity. The truth is, each portal has its own unique personality, searchability, and followers. 

 

In order to keep content fresh and up to date, you need to have every employee on the same G+ page. This means a bit of training, but really, only a half hour at the most. Train them how to:

Search for new contactsPost updates+1 other pagesSearch for and add hashtagsMention others in their updatesSearch and join other discussionsAdd their G+ page to their email signatureAdd a G+ badge on all other relevant websites

How to Teach Google What a Story Is

How to Teach Google What a Story Is | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it
Deep inside Google, a small team has been trying to solve a problem that's easy for any schmuck around the watercooler but frighteningly difficult for the world's most data-rich company: telling a story.
Jaana Nyström's insight:

-  The product is called Stories, and it takes photos users upload and automatically packages them up into narratives.  

Maybe that sounds easy, but that's because you're a human.  Teaching a machine a sense of narrative and place isn't quite so easy, even using all of the information that Google knows about a user...

8 Ways to Get More Google+ Page Followers

8 Ways to Get More Google+ Page Followers | GooglePlus Expertise | Scoop.it
Let's face it, Google+ is not going to go away like Google Buzz or MySpace. More and more users are becoming familiar with Google+ and using it every day to connect and communicate. Equally as important is the fact that Google+ is more deeply integrated with Google's other products and services than any other service we've every used before. Having a successful Google+ Business Page is no longer an option for businesses who wish to succeed online. However, starting a new social media presence is a pain!

It's funny how, in the offline world, we always take care not to let people into our personal space. We lock our doors, close our windows and look after our personal belongings.

 

And yet in the online world, many people forget to do this and can sometimes be careless and leave their doors open for people them to enter and invade their personal space, play with their content and create havoc with their accounts...

Google+ Posts Are Web Pages

- Wait, what?
Unlike Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn posts, Google+ posts are indexed in the search results just like websites. More over, they can be linked to, SEO’d and acquire authority of their own just like your website. This means you can get more SERP real-estate for your own online properties and take away from your competitors!

It just occurred to me, after spending a week deep-diving into Google+, that Plus is not a social network — or even a social layer — it’s a global reboot of the message board.

If you want to succeed, you need to forget about your friends and your family. Leave them behind. There are cooler, smarter, funnier people on Google+ than we have in our own lives now.
