When I joined Google+ and started trying to get the hang of the whole thing, I had a lot of questions. Some of these ranged from the really basic to the more intricate.

If youĂ˘Â€Â™ve just started your Google+ journey in prep for Author Rank, IĂ˘Â€Â™m sure you have a bunch of questions, and youĂ˘Â€Â™re probably looking for some tips/shortcuts too.

IĂ˘Â€Â™m going to begin Part III of this Google+ series by diving right into the good stuff.

I had my hands full figuring out the tips and tricks of all the other major social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram), so it was much easier to go along with the rest of the world (right or wrong) and dismiss Google+ as a digital graveyard. I had a Google+ account, sure, but if you asked me how to start a hangout or how to share something based on circles, you’d hear crickets.
