When I started my blog, I was thinking only Facebook and twitter can drive traffic to my blog and that’s why I never focused on google plus. Even my profile didn’t have cover pic for first 3 months.
But one day i was reading “New York times article” and it declared Google plus as Ghost town, if you want you can read that article. Link is below.
Well that explain a lot, so i visited my google plus profile, just to check “what the heck is going on my profile”……….And i found “I have 40 followers with total of 500 google plus view count”………….and i was thinking….”Really”
Then I checked my blog analytics report and I found “i had total 200 visitors just from Google plus”. ohhh boy…..i quit Facebook and twitter and started focusing on my google plus profile.
Anyway I just wanted to let you know that Google Plus Just as Popular as Twitter and Facebook.
