Effective Content Marketing on Google Plus: 5 Tools to Measure Success

Effective Content Marketing on Google Plus: 5 Tools to Measure Success | Social Media Focus | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article on Content Marketing Institute:
"All of this talk about the success of Google+ is cold comfort for marketers who are unsure how to measure their effective content marketing efforts on G+.

For users new to Google+, there are a few key metrics that really matter when it comes to understanding how effective your content marketing presence on G+ is. These metrics include:

- Circle Rank
- Shares
- +1s
- Engagement
- Impressions
- Frequency of posts/content
- Number of followers/growth of followers
- Referral traffic
- Conversion rates

The rest of this post examines tools that will help you understand how your profile is performing in the above areas, so that you can make informed decisions about your Google+ content strategy.

1. All My + Statistics
The All My + Statistics site may just be Google+ Nirvana for marketers who want to understand how their content, as well as that of their competitors, is being received on Google+. It’s a free service that provides you with analytics data for anyone’s public Google+ content and profile.

2. Simply Measured’s Google+ Reports Page

3. PlusClout
The PlusClout extension for Google+ measures the influence a given user has on Google+. A user’s Clout score can range from 0 – 100, and is based on a number of attributes, including the number of followers they have and shares they’ve earned.

4. CircleCount
Search your own profile on CircleCount and you will receive a free and simple-to-use report.
An overview screen provides general statistics about your profile that you will find helpful, such as what your overall rank is, what your rank is in your home country, and what your circle rank is.

5. Recommended Users
Recommended Users is to Google+ as Followerwonk is to Twitter. The tool segments Google+ users into categories, such as women in tech, top Googlers, gaming, celebrities, journalists, etc. Each category ranks users according to their level of influence..."

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Social Media Focus | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Good thoughts on how you and your business can get the most out of the network on Google+!
