{Google+ Hangout} Google+ for Food Bloggers

Google+ HOA -- Why Every Food Bloggers Should be on Google+ from

Last week, Christine from Cook the Story and I tackled a daunting question that so many food bloggers are begining to spike interest in… Google+. We spoke with Jenni Field of Pastry Chef Online about how to implement Google+ from a Food Bloggers stand point. There are so many benefits that you can get by using Google+ and Hangouts On Air (HOA).

I’ve been on Google+ since it was in beta version. At that point I wasn’t sure if it was really worth it but everyone kept saying it was and to hang on. Now, there is a lot more activity although still less common than  most standard forms of social sharing i.e., Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. But where Google+ is different is that it sits with Google so your search ranking goes up (increasing your SEO) each time someone post about you or you post about yourself. Watch our video as Jenni explains some really cool things that I didn’t even realize Google+ was doing (and proper ways to use G+)!

Here are three other great articles you can read about why you should be on Google+!

      Tanya, I think everyone is still learning G+ but if we all can put our heads together we will be even more powerful!

    In my opinion, G+ is a place where conversations takes place with ideas and participations from everyone. It’s not as controversial as Facebook (privacy issues) and limited as Twitter (there’s so little I can squeeze in 140 chars!).

    I love Chef Dennis’s G+ hangouts and discussions. There’s a lot more groups that we can join in various fields to expand our knowledge of how to implement G+ into blogging.
