PROMO: WRITE: HYPERGRID: Send G+ communities your blog links. Tell a community about your article

Send G+ communities your blog links.  
Tell a community about your article
If you blog, you have a target audience.  G+ communities may be gathering your audience for you.  Here are some G+ communities I have found useful in promoting articles about virtual worlds.

Posting to G+ communities

  • I post to my G+ profile stream, then go to the profile and share. 
  • I can share with G+ communities and to my circles.
  • Some blogging software supports auto-posting, which may be a bit easier.
  • I use Feedly to follow these communities and link to other posts sometimes
  • I use my profile stream to collect links. 
  • I go to my profile stream and send links to groups that might be interested.
  • Links to my articles and links to other articles.
  • I don't send every link to every group that might be interested.
  • Just one or two groups per link.   If anyone wants more links, 
  • they can look on my profile stream.

Search on page

  • You can search this or any webpage for words of phrases,
  • In Chrome, press Ctrl f to open the search bar (upper right).
  • Other viewers probably offer this service, too, maybe with the same Ctrl f.
  • You can use this on the list of G+ communities, too.
  • If you don't find the community you want, maybe you should create it.

  • Where is Arcadia?

    • Q: What happened to the Friday event notices you were carrying twice a month?
    • A: They weren't drawing enough interest and alternative sources came online.  I am now running a short  form daily near the top of this blog. A more comprehensive collection is in  Selby's daily news collection.

    Are any of these G+ communities the target audience for your blog?

    • This list is not finished.  
    • If I missed a community, mention it in the comments.
    • If I learn about other communities, I will add them in an update.

    Search for G+ communities that suit you

    • Search bar in your G+ communities page helps but is not very selective.
    • You can use search-on-page to search a big page fast.
    • G+ searches may show only the top 3 hits. Don't stop there.
    • Try the search term followed by G+.  This sometimes gives a good result for me.
    • Try several different keywords that fit your interests.
