How To Prevent Random Google+ Users From Sending You Gmail

How To Prevent Random Google+ Users From Sending You Gmail | Blogging Resources - Social Media Tips | Scoop.it

Google recently implemented deeper integration between Gmail and Google+ by introducing a setting that lets anyone with a Google+ account send each other email. 

The new feature is automatically set to “Anyone,” so Google+ users who don’t want to receive Gmail from strangers will have to opt-out. You can choose to receive email via Google+ from your extended circles, just your circles or no one. 

Here’s how you do it:

Login to Gmail and click the gear icon at the top right corner of your screen.Select “Settings.”Under “General,” look for the setting “Email via Google+.” Click the drop down menu and select the audience you want to have the ability to send you Gmail. I opted for “Circles.” Scroll to the bottom and click “Save Changes.”

I guess you can never have enough curating, in this digital age anything that can keep you up to date and help visibility is worth a try. I like the way the simplify everything. I'm not sure but even with all this info I still may feel like I'm missing something and go to the individual sites anyway. But to see what the landscape looks like in a quick view Qwant is pretty cool.

I think there is way more value in a Google+ account than mentioned here.  I have seen some VERY POOR websites rank well with the help of a Google+ account.

Vinod Poyilath's curator insight, March 29, 2013 10:44 AM

Interesting stats there... Google+ being more popular in the BRIC countries.. means HUGE potential, and obviously for Indian entrepreneurs, another great tool to leverage. Interestingly, I don't see that being done enough!!

 

And looking at where it is going, the first page results are increasingly getting hijacked by Google local listings, which is both good and bad; good that your results for local searches come with maps and all contact info in one glance, and you can rank on front page with literally no SEO; bad that it becomes hard for a site with no brick and mortar office to rank for such local search terms.

People are now more critical on the presentation of food than ever. Coupled with the taste, uniqueness and the awesomeness of the ingredients, the look of the plating is what gives the food a more palatable experience.

All these features are what we commonly see in a food blog.

 

But what are the other elements that really make up a successful food blog.
