Why Use Google+

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013


"I'm already on Facebook," you say? Well that's a great start. But for getting the most out of search engines you also want to be a part of Google+. After all, it is the number one search engine out there. All posts to Google+ are indexed by Google, meaning that they become searchable on Google. So if you want people to find you on Google, Google+ is an important part.

GET A GMAIL ACCOUNT
The first thing you have to do is get a Google account - that means signing up for a Gmail Account - yep, the "G" in Gmail stands for Google.
But I already HAVE an email account you say? That's OK, many people have multiple email accounts these days. And if you want to be on Google+ or have a YouTube account for that matter (Google owns YouTube), you HAVE to have a Gmail email account.
Click Here to sign up for a gmail account: https://accounts.google.com/SignUp

Note: You can create a Google account with any email address at: https://accounts.google.com/NewAccount.
But, let's say you want to sign up for Google Plus with a Yahoo email address and you already have a Google account under that address, you cannot sign up for Google Plus separately. It will all be linked in your Google account. If you use only Google services that do not require a Google account—such as Search, Maps, Translate—and you have not created one yet, you will be forced to create a Google account upon signing up for Google Plus. After all, it is linked to your identity and therefore you need to create an account.
