Three Places to Generate Social Buzz For Free
This is my favorite so it has to be the number one on the list. Have been using this right from the start and it has great potentials.
Unlike Facebook groups, Some Google+ communities can contain large amount of members and often are in different niches.
For example if i have written an article on social media – Just like this one, I just have to head over to G+ Communities and search for Social Media, Then i join and start posting.
It doesn’t have to be a new article, It may be any of your existing blog post or pages or your main URL. This is what i first did for my blog and i got very good results.
Just search for communities related to your niche, Join and start sharing useful stuffs not spamming cos few of the community moderators are very strict and wants whats on your your site/blog post to add value to the community members.
This method also helps rank your blog posts well on Google search engine. Another advantage of Google+ is that it’s limitless, You keep posting and getting views till you’re tired.. It’s just as easy as that but be careful not to look like a spammer.
Go to Google+ Communities >> Search For your Groups Related to your website >> Join Them >> Compose something good about your website and include your link >> Do it for as many communities as possible.
One thing you should never do is Post in an UNRELATED Community. Can’t spell out some reasons right not but don’t.
Might lead to banning from community or even worse? Multiple reports that may get your account limited.

Like pages, Subscribe to YT channels, Add to G+ Circles and more to earn points for your own boosts.
Earn those points and add your own url to get hits, shares, retweets or followers. It’s as easy as that. I have taken time to make a list of those networks i have used and those am still using. Give them a try.
