Our most popular Google+ posts in November 2013


Here is a collection of the six most clicked through posts from the +Gplus Expertise page!
I often use Bufferapp to schedule posts on Google+ business pages, because 24/7 presence is impossible and I do have a major part of my followers in far away time zones.  Another good reason is the analytics I get for each post.
+Buffer makes the task easy!





Even if there is no huge visible interaction on a post, the click through rates are astonishing.
The app collects all the clicks, also from reshares because of the bit.ly link shortener I use.
I sometimes repost the good content posts and being able to do it from the app's Analytics part, the link stays the same and collects further data.  Even posting / scheduling the exact same post on Facebook is possible.



The most clicked links on posts


The winner with 505 clicks or CTR is The Anatomy of a Perfect Google+ Post.

I'm glad to see that the curating of articles and providing all kinds of advice around the Google product family has not been wasted.  Even though the +Gplus Expertise is not a giant among the Google+ business pages, it has made some kind of impression.
At least on some websites' analytics!

These posts live on and keep on collecting the interactions: Reposting after some time has elapsed, using hashtags, good images, intros and keywords: on Google+ they may live for years to come.
One good reason for authors to update their posts every now and then...


#SharingIsCaring so share on!
