Title: We're on Google+
Post by: Oldiesmann on November 08, 2011, 12:05:44 AM
For those who haven't heard, Google finally launched pages for their Google+ social network. Not one to be behind in the social media front, I went ahead and created an SMF page :)

https://plus.google.com/100489536380251123939/about

That one is for the organization (Simple Machines) itself and was created by Kindred. The one I created is just for SMF :)
Title: Re: We're on Google+
Post by: Dan_y2k on November 15, 2011, 06:12:40 AM
Congrats! BTW, anyone else noticed that in SM.org's main page the link is pointing to gplus.to, and not http://gplus.to/SimpleMachinesForum? ;)
Title: Re: We're on Google+
Post by: Illori on November 15, 2011, 06:15:12 AM
it points to https://plus.google.com/108050083330054948623/posts for me, not gplus.to

When I hover the gplus link on Google Chrome, you can see the link in the bottom right corner, it does not show the full link (it shows gplus.to), and takes me to http://gplus.to, not to https://plus.google.com/108050083330054948623/posts
Title: Re: We're on Google+
Post by: Oldiesmann on November 15, 2011, 11:17:53 AM
If only SMF's "cut off the text after x characters" thing was more intelligent :P

I've sent a message to SleePy asking him to increase the text cutoff limit by 20 characters or so to prevent that from happening. If you scroll further down the page though, there is a direct link to the page.
Title: Re: We're on Google+
Post by: Dan_y2k on November 15, 2011, 01:17:08 PM
Well, I think that if links are being cut-off, the link text (doesn't matter if it's a word, sentence or an address) should be cut, but the link, even if half of it is shown, should still link to the full address.

It is a good decision to get a page on Google+. It helps a lot in different ways .. congrats ... :)

The Google+ link, together with all the other social stuff is on the front page of the site.

On the home page, under short news of this topic, who has writen http://gplus.to... ? the link is expecting /SimpleMachinesForum
and when I click on it, the page refer me to gplus.to page while the correct must be http://gplus.to/SimpleMachinesForum.

What are the real benefits for using Google+ ?
Title: Re: We're on Google+
Post by: Tomy Tran on February 13, 2012, 05:02:12 AM
Advertising on social network and SEO matter.
Title: Re: We're on Google+
Post by: Kindred on February 13, 2012, 11:09:48 AM
well, it has nothing (at all) to do with SEO...   but google+ is trying to compete with facebook as a social networking platform...       So, just as we have facebook and twitter pages, we also have added  a Simple Machines Forum page on Google+

(side note: we also have a google+ page for the organization, Simple Machines as well as the project Simple Machines Forum - they are two separate (although related) things.)

We could really do with +1 button on every smf topic to rate the best ones.
Title: Re: We're on Google+
Post by: Arantor on June 04, 2012, 02:59:56 PM
Hmm, I'm not sure +1 is entirely the best way of doing that. Mind you, I'm not sure that any of the other (Twitter/FB) solutions are any better, I just rolled my own.
Title: Re: We're on Google+
Post by: Tomy Tran on June 29, 2012, 04:03:52 AM
it's lack of info on gg+ from this brand.
