How To Use Google Circles For Business

This post explains how to use Google Circles for business.

Now don’t worry if your wondering what a circle is, what it does and how it works, they are very simple to understand and use.

All will be explained in this post for and … ideally in laymans, or womans terms!!

The main thing to remember is this, Google is the Worlds largest Technology platform and so, it is their to help you with your business


Are simply a way of way of organising, your work contacts and or connections into handy ‘circles’ of influence, possibly even organisation if you prefer

Circles are used in much the same way as you can seperate your connections on Linkedin, if that makes it easier to relate to.

You can have a circle for absolutely anything you have an interest in, or business connection to.

Circles are created, either from within Google itself using the search bar, or the community tab, more on that in a moment, or indeed by inviting your Linked in connections to follow you on Google+

So, How do you use Circles?

Well, there are different ways in which to use Google Circles, but what you have to bear in mind, is this. Google owns Google+…. So absolutely every interaction you have on and in Circles, will be indexed, because google will index content from its own platform/s first, before the likes of othe rsocial media platforms

So, when you are part of a circle, whether its your own, or one you have joined. You can take part, by joining in discussions, sharing your blog link, and this includes your blogger link, because Google owns Blogger : )

You have to be very careful however with the sharing of ‘raw’ affiliate links because Google doesn’t like them

What is a Raw Affiliate Link?… Well this is an example of a raw affiliate link https://www.wealthyaffiliate.com?a_aid=a2360beb

So you would need to turn the raw link into a pretty link and you can read about that on this page

Circles are also great ways of finding out new things, and they won’t just be about Google and with each interaction in a circle, you will see a comment box, like the one below

Most of the time they are set to public, as shown, however, when you click on the Public icon, you are presented with a drop down box, as shown below

You will see, that the Public box is automatically ticked, but if you have a post or link, that you don’t want made public, then you can select the option which best fits, bearing in mind what has been said about affiliate links

It should be noted that if you do post a raw affiliate link, then google will email you and advise you that your content has been removed, because it violates their terms and condtions

So as Google likes content, and you want to be found by the search engines, then it might be best to stick with posting good content, and posting it as public

Using Google circles you can network with other likeminded individuals, by commenting on their posts, or at least the posts that resonate with you the most.

Doing this, shows google, that you are an active contributor on their platform and they willrank you accordingly. All of which obviously helps you, your blog and the rankings you get

So a total win win situation

And that is how you use Circles with Google+

Now, if you found this post useful and / or beneficial, feel free to like, comment and share using the buttons beneath this post.By commenting, you get a chance to leave your own website address and email as well, which in turn Google then notifies me of

When that happens, I return the compliment to you and did you know, that works with absolutely every blog you comment, like and share, which in turn helps your rankings &… Your business

How cool is that

Great post Dave this is the first time am hearing about Google circles. I love how you did your explaining about it. It gave me an insight to what it is all about. But I have one question, is what I share on Circles valuable to people who click through to my sites?

    Dave Hayes - September 6, 2018

    Absolutely it is. As you will have read, Google loves Authorship and engagement, for which circles is key to that. So, by posts, with link, they can click through to your website and get even more value and content.

I have often heard about people improving their business using Google, but I never really understood how. Now that I have read though your explanation of Google Circles, I can see the value of working with other like minded people. I think I will give Google Circles a try. Thank you for the knowledge!

    Clay, your welcome and thanks for commenting, I appreciate it. Everyone gets hung on Facebook, which is great for backlinking, BUT as you say, Google is the Worlds Largest search engine, which works for you and every action taken on their, content wise is indexed, because it likes authorship and authority. Authority in the form of specialist knowledge… EG Blogs

    Once you start building it, you will be amazed at what doors open

    And where does everything start?… Keyword searching!

Hi Dave Hayes, I enjoyed the post on “Google Circles.” I think this will help me quite a bit. I need a little more info on how to link it with “linked in.” Very good article and one I intend to pursue further. Thanks! Any info you could send a newbie would be appreciated. I’m still learning the basics.

    Thanks for your comment, glad you found it useful.Linking Google Circles with Linkedin is pretty easy and you can do this from your own blog and in your G+ profile.

    I am in the process of doing a training site on this as we speak : )
