Welcome to Google Plus Marathon Mondays!
This linkup is all about building a REAL community of like-minded bloggers on G+ and helping each other reach more people.
IMPORTANT: This linkup is different from others you might have been to before, so please read the following instructions CAREFULLY.
Here’s how it works:
1. Follow everyone listed below in the Influencer Area. This area is reserved people who have won the Influencer Award for Outstanding Social Media Engagement. This is our way of rewarding them for being courteous linkup participants. If you’ve received an Influencer Award and installed the badge on your site, feel free to submit your link there.
2. Add the link to your Google Plus profile below so we can add you to our “Marathon Mondays” shared circle, which will automatically showcase all of your G+ posts in the news feed.
Please Note: All G+ Links submitted by 11:59pm today will be added to the shared circle tomorrow morning. Any links added after that time will be added next week.
4. Scroll down through our news feed and check out what other bloggers in our community are up to.
5. If you like their stuff, be generous with +1s, comments and shares, and always use the hashtag #gplusmonday (read on to find out why)!
6. Come back to visit our shared circle AT LEAST every Monday to continue supporting this community. There’s no need to submit your link again as you’ll already be on our list, but you’ll really miss out on the benefits of this linkup if you don’t come back. Why? Keep reading.
HERE’S HOW THIS WILL HELP YOU:
1. Google will show your content to more people if it’s getting +1s, comments and shares.
2. Bloggers generally like to help people who help them, so the friends you make will be worth the effort.
3. Each week, we’ll be watching the use of our hashtag to see who has earned an influencer award. If you receive a nomination and install the badge on your site, you’ll be able to submit your link to our influencer area and everyone who joins up will be required to follow you.
Does that make sense? If not, leave a comment and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
So… are you ready to party?
FYI, by adding your link here you agree to be added to our mailing list. You can unsubscribe at any time.
