members for exposure. Post or share your content on them.

great and interesting content. Also interact with other members.

5. #Use targeted sharing

          

I was one of the people who thought that when they post their content on "public”, it meant more exposure thus more traffic for them. But experts suggest that you should do "targeted" sharing, at the same time making sure that you click "send emails to your cycles" as well.


6. #Use #hashtags


Use #hashtags at the end or in the body of each post for more traffic. Google by default adds #hashtags to articles with enough text to put in order content topic.

7. #Embed Google+ comments


Embed Google+ comments on your website so that when visitors leave a comment, they will also share your post to their Google+ followers. The below diagram is for blogger platform users only. Other platforms such as WordPress do have their own plugins available.
