The tagging system in Google+ is a little different. If you’re composing a comment or a post and need to reference someone in the text, you need to type a + followed directly by their name, like +Mike Allton.
Forgetting to Credit People
It’s good etiquette to mention the author of a post your sharing. On Google+ it’s also good etiquette to acknowledge a reshare of an original post.
For instance, If I shared Mike’s post (this one) I would include the header (usually the title) followed by a “via +Mike Alton’ (mention) This is similar to that we do on Twitter.
Share content on Google+ and connect with your potential customers
Highlights from Rand Fishkin’s Whiteboad Friday concerning Google+ relevance to SERP results.
Google+ is a very valuable place to earn personalized traffic for two reasons:
1. Can get people over to your site. You can appear in those search results right at the bottom for anyone who follows you or anyone who’s connected to you via email and other kinds of Google apps. When you email with someone, if they’re using Gmail and their Google+ account is connected, you see in the little right-hand corner there that they’ll show their last post or their last few posts sometimes on Google+
2. This can also show up for brands as well. There’s the brand box on the right-hand side, kind of like Knowledge Graph, and it’ll show your last few posts from Google+. So again, more and more opportunities to be visible if you’re doing Google+
