Many foodies 🙂 who often write something related to food ideas, street food, delicious food recipes, gradually they feel that their blogs have increased in volume (in terms of content or number of posts) but they still are suffering due to less traffic to their food blog. The immediate thing that comes to every blogger’s mind is the promotion of their content on social media sites. Google is a giant player in the internet industry and its all products are successfully leading the industry. ‘Google+’ is another great offering from Google to its users. It’s a unique social networking site and all Gmail account holders by default own Google + account. So now, we will discuss tricks to improve Google plus traffic to food blog.
Getting a click from Google + site to your food blog is easier than any other social networking sites because of its huge numbers of active users and more importantly, this social networking site is driven by large images and beautiful videos. So if you have large size attractive images in your post then you may successfully drive huge traffic from Google+. More particularly I would say that food blogs and travel blogs always have very beautiful & large images on their each post. So those bloggers must explore this opportunity and improve Google plus traffic to food blog to get more social media traffic.
Many bloggers do not have any clue about the effectiveness of Google Plus and they face difficulties to get traffic from this social networking site. At the beginning most bloggers do a common mistake, they actually use their personal profile to promote their blog posts.But you will be happy to know this that Google Plus offers brand page feature to its users who want to promote something (blog posts, products etc) under a particular brand. I also did this mistake when I started blogging and continued that mistake for many months. 😛 But it happens when you are self-taught and learning something while you actually doing it.
So after creating your own brand page, the first task you need to do is, complete your profile. Write some details of your blog or website, add a profile pic, wall paper, privacy setting etc.
Once you have done with your profile setting, now time to get involved to grab some traffic to your blog. It is not easy to get followers but still, you can get some traffic if your content is excellent.
Tricks to improve Google plus traffic to food blog
Type some of your blog keywords in the SEARCH section and enter. Scroll down, go to communities section and click some of those communities related to those keywords and join those communities. Start sharing your blog posts with such communities and also with the public. This way you will get free traffic without having a decent number of followers. I always prefer to join atleast 14 related communities and pick 2 communities on each day. That means on each day you will share target two communities and share minimum 10-12 posts per community. But do not leave other community inactive on that day. Share one or two posts on those communities too.
Check each community of which you have become a member. Search for those people who are active in such communities or commenting regularly. Pick some of those (they are people with similar interest) and start following them and you can expect you can get some followers of your page in return.
Build new circle:
The circle is a unique feature in Google plus. With this circle feature, you can share your posts with a group of people instantly and that too without letting them aware about other circle members. That nobody else will know who else are the members of that circle. this is a basic difference of circle and community. Another difference between circle & community is, You can make anybody member of that circle but in the case of a community, member needs to show interest to join that community first. Otherwise, you can not make anybody a community member whereas it is possible in case of a circle. Now if you are a food blogger then you can build a circle with like minded members and share your blog posts with the circle members. This way you can improve Google plus traffic to food blog. But, how will you utilize a circle? You just need to visit each community and pick each member who is active in that community. Identify them by observing who makes comment in each post. Once you start doing so then you will see Google itself will give you suggestions for you under FIND PEOPLE option. This will help you help to grow your circle faster.
