The 20 reasons why many people think Google Plus is a Ghost Town are . . .

The 20 reasons why many people think Google Plus is a Ghost Town are . . .

Nearly every day I hear or read something about Google Plus being a ghost town. After looking at their Google Plus account, I can understand why.

If you think Google Plus is a ghost town, here may be some reasons you might think that. Although I have thousands of people who have circled me on G+ and have found some great conversations as well as some great friends, many people think it is a ghost town. As an early adopter of Google Plus and having managed several Google Plus pages, I have found Google Plus to be anything of a Ghost Town. Sure, I will agree with you it isn’t where Facebook is today, but given that Google Plus is just barely over a year old and Facebook is nearly 8 years old, Google Plus has made some huge strides in its first year.

Here are 20 reasons why you may think G+ is a ghost town:

1. You share your nudity art on the public stream, rather than to a circle that accepts nudity art. Children are on G+ and you have a responsibility to keep your content from ending up in the wrong hands. I know a few friends that have blocked individuals because their friends kept sending nudity art and they didn’t want their kids to accidentally pick up their phones and see the nudity art.

2. You share stereotypical post. This is a new century and people don’t like generalizations about Races. Don’t share post calling out entire classes of people over behaviors you don’t like, instead of just one individual. Sharing stereotypical post over race, creed or color, will always get you blocked quickly by most of the G+ community.

3. You believe that spamming your issues on popular post is your calling. Spamming is when someone comes across a popular discussion thread, proceeds to place a link to either an advertisement or to their special interest in that thread, piggybacking on its popularity for their own agenda. Some network marketers, political pundits and small business owners like doing this to gain traffic to their website. Spamming will get you blocked quickly. I’ll share some awesome SEO information at the end of this post.

4. You believe that your religion gives you an upper hand on the world’s problems. Because you believe you have the answers you preach and condemn those with opposing views. Rather than preach to people who haven’t asked to preach to and risk being blocked, share your message to religious-specific circles where people of like minds can discuss their faiths privately.

5. During a verbal assault you go crazy and won’t quit until you have the last word. Debate is sometimes a lost art, and when faced with disagreement, anger often ensues, leading to unpleasant back and forth insult or worse. Learn how to agree to disagree. Public verbal assaults will get you blocked fast.

6. You share opinion articles to meet your personal agenda without digging in to make sure the article is truthful. Although  Google allows everyone to post links to outside content, you should at least fact-check prior to posting a link to irrefutable proof that eating Pizza is good for diabetics.

7. You believe the women of G+ are there for your ogling and visual entertainment. Women don’t want your filthy private messages and suggestive images. Before textually or visually accosting someone on the forum, ask yourself if your mother or sister would appreciate receiving your content?

8. You feel it is your mission to cut out the jokes and sarcasm on G+. Before you add a inconsiderate comment and then run off to report their joke and comment that you did not consider funny, consider intent, not result. Cool off. If you’re the only one who found the joke offensive, just brush it off before you post that comment. If you don’t you will likely find yourself quite lonely on G+.

9. You complain about Google + and you share post comparing G+ to Facebook. OK, we get it. If you don’t like it, go away. Negativity on G+ will get you blocked very quickly. Nobody wants to hear that noise. Have you thought that maybe your post are driving away your friends. If you don’t like to be a leader and use G+, leave. You can always follow everyone when they jump ship and come to G+.

10. You present yourself as a technology guru and feel you must share technical post or comments that you have no idea about. If your post and comments start leading people astray, you might find your confused followers blocking you. You need to remember that technology is always changing and if you don’t know what you are talking about, it’s fine, but pretending that you’re an expert is dangerous to unsuspecting users. Don’t do it.

11. OK, you have circled me, but won’t let me see your profile, or better yet, you have not completed a G+ profile. Since G+ is for the purpose of discovering like-minds of interest, people will want to circle you back in the appropriate circle. If they can’t determine, they may not circle you back. When a person circles others, while not sharing their own information, is considered bad-form. Many G+ users  lacking patience might block you for it.

12. Someone blocks you, and you find it offensive....you and start sharing post about someone blocking you and how rude you think it is. What this will actually get is more attention, but now for the right reasons. You will find more people blocking you. Some people will block you because they’ll believe that if one person blocked you, you must have given them a reason to block you, so they will block you. Other people will block you because they don’t approve of your middle school childish behavior.

13. You are labeled as an Expert, Pundit, Politician, Writer or Celebrity but will not answer or comment on other G+ users. G+ is not one way communication and if you don’t comment or answering G+ users, many G+ users will figure that either you are too good for them or a stand-in. Many of the writers who say that “G+ is a Ghost Town” fall into this category. G+ users who fall into this category haven’t figured out that G+ is built for 2-way communication, not one-way communication.

14. You, simply cannot, or will not, admit a mistake, even if you’re proved incorrect. You feel you are perfect, and above reproach. When other G+ users feel that on controversial post that you haven’t left your ego out of the post, you will get blocked. When you are wrong admit it. It is not illegal to be wrong, just admit it. If you can’t admit mistakes you will get blocked.

15. You, regardless of your intellect, feel the only way to get noticed and followed on G+ is to display cleavage at every opportunity. If you want to be respected for your mind, show me that, and not your goodies.

16 You, despite all reason, logic and excuses, are essentially just a jerk. Yep, these people are everywhere so why would be surprised that they are on G+.

17. You’re anti-social. Unlike a jerk who most people believe have to practice, an anti social person is just made that way. They have few friends in real life and try to disguise their personality as witty and charming. When they can’t manipulate a person to what they want, they become very arrogant and angry. If you’re anti social you may get blocked by people fast.

18. You haven’t taken advantage of the really cool tools within G+ like Google Hangouts and Google Search. Did you know you can have a video conference with up to 9 of your friends for “Free”. If you haven’t checked out where the people are at, you may think G+ is a ghost town. Be an adventurer and checkout the cool tools G+ has for its user.

19. You have added dull friends and have made a judgment that all of G+ is dull and a ghost town. Before you make such a judgement, look at yourself. Maybe it is you and not G+. G+ is designed for you to connect with people that have a similar interest as yourself. If you think G+ is dull and a ghost town, maybe look at the people you have circled or your interest. With millions of people on G+, I find it hard to believe that all of them are boring and don’t frequent G+ frequently.

20. You post as often as a blue moon and then make a judgement that G+ is a ghost town. I actually got this idea from an author who commented that G+ is a ghost town, but he had only shared two public post in the past 45 days. Start by commenting on other people’s post. If you share quality content, people will find you. I have found that G+ is anything but a ghost town.


Google+ is a wonderful place to meet others, to learn, to share experiences, and develop your personal brand. If you fit into one of these 20 behaviors, you might think G+ is a ghost town. Don’t worry though. It is not too late to change. Start by avoiding the the above behaviors, keeping an open mind to other points of view, and not hiding behind your profile. In no time flat, you will develop a rocking stream of content, and thousands of circles from other users. You might even meet the next customer or client on Google Plus.

With the new changes to Google Search lately, G+ will play a major role with small business owners with ranking high on Google. If that is important, maybe you should checkout G+.

Earlier I mentioned in the spamming behavior section that I would share some important SEO information. Here it is: The new Google algorithm that helps determines where your website is ranked on a Google Search has changed. Yes, backlinks are important but it is not the most important anymore. The new algorithm looks at the attached G+ profile of your website and looks at the social interaction. If there is no attached G+ profile or little social interaction, there is a good chance your website will rank lower. In addition, Google takes into account the +1’s your website and attached G+ site get to help rank your website. Obviously, the more +1’s is good because Google figures it is a more important website.

Just remember G+ is still growing and should not be compared to 8 year old Facebook.

Lets connect on G+!

Yesterday I shared the 7 types of wrong people in social media to stay away from. I got feedback requesting the type of people to follow. Here are the 3 Types of people to connect with on social media:


Yesterday I shared the 7 types of wrong people in social media to stay away from. I got feedback requesting the type of people to follow. Here are the 3 Types of people to connect with on social media:

1) The first type of person to connect with on social media is the Influencers.

Who are Influencer?

 Statistically, only about 1% of the social media users are influencers. They like to start conversations. Their posts are widely read and broadly shared. They are capable of influencing not only the people they know, but also people they don’t know. They belong to the major social networks—Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and LinkedIn. They are typically the trendsetters and If they know you and care about you, they will help you achieve your goals. If you don't feel comfortable asking Influencers help in public, send them a private message. They understand how you feel because they were once in your shoes. They are great a starting Facebook Groups, starting trends and promoting fundraiser events. They understand it is not about them.

Influencers are like your city Mayor on social media. Good Influencers to connect with are those from your city and your profession.

2) The next type of person to connect with on social media is the Engager. The Engager makes up 5% of the people on social media and they act like the broadcasters. They're great at connecting with Influencers and broadcasting post and tweets. They're also good at generating their own post, sharing information and engaging in conversation. Engagers like to collaborate on ideas. Engagers are like the city council and school board members in your city. Good Engagers to connect with are those from your city and your profession.


3) The third type of person to connect with on social media is your Target Audience. Who is your audience? Your audience is your customers, past customers, referral partners, people from your city, people from your market area, close friends and family.


I hope this post will help you become more successful with social media. By connecting with the right people, you will find that social media will not be a time waster and will in fact help your business grow.

If you’re selling your home, and would like to connect with potential buyers....let’s talk.

Who you connect with says as much about you, as the thoughts and ideas you post.  Pick the right people, get the right results! If you would like to connect with me, feel free to connect with my social media channels below.

Relationships are where the magic happens. It can also be a time waster if you’re connecting with the wrong people so it is important to stay away from the wrong people. So who are the 7 types people in social media to stay away from?


I love social media.

As the real estate marketing specialist on my team, it is my job to market my listings and website. I also use social media to connect with consumers and referral partners. Social media allows me to meet and connect with more people than I could possibly do physically. To me, not only is it the biggest asset – to connect me with the potential clients, clients....people who have questions. It saves time. I do have to watch what I do on social media or I can get off task easily. 

Relationships are where the magic happens.

It can also be a time waster if you’re connecting with the wrong people so it is important to stay away from the wrong people.

So who are the 7 types people in social media to stay away from?

1) The Original Time Waster: This type of person may between career choices and will want to pick your brain. They will ask many questions about your business or a business you had been involved in. This person should not be confused with the person who ask just a couple questions. It becomes a point when this type of person will take advantage of your friendship. The conversations will go from being beneficial to a dump fest or a woe with me public outcry. I once met a loan officer who was the Original Time Waster. He really didn't know what he wanted. He also had many personal issues going on and he got social media friends to feel sorry for him. He eventually burned quite a few people and left the area. As a small business owner, you want to be really careful with these people, because they’re not beneficial to your business. In fact they may hurt your business reputation.

2) The Spammer: The spammer is hard to carry on a conversation with. Trying to engage with a spammer is like talking to a 3 month old baby. You can do all the talking and they will sit there and smile. They're too busy posting messages and promoting their agenda. They're even notorious for posting the same exact message multiple times and over many groups. If you comment or ask a question, they typically will not respond because they're busy posting. I've talked to a few and asked them why they post so many times. The responses I have heard back are “it is about the numbers””The more people I meet, the greater chance I can sell . . . “ or “I was posting because I figured people wanted to read it.” Spammers are great at killing the mood of a Facebook group and turning a Facebook group into a ghost town.

3) The So Called Expert Know It All: The trouble with the So Called Expert Know It All is they annoy people. They're too busy trying to prove that they are right and they will kill the conversation by cutting off debate. They will make fun of anyone who has an opinion different than their opinion. They have a knack for locating great discussions and sharing opinions only to ruin it by jumping in and forcing their way of thinking onto everyone else. They think their business is the center of the universe and how dare anyone have a different opinion. When they hop into a conversation you will notice that only people with their opinion will stay in the conversation. These type of wrong people represent the exact opposite of what social media is supposed to be about and are typically found on politically motivated sites and groups.

4) The Shameless Self-Promoter: This person has an agenda and they will keep wasting your time until you bite. Social media is full of these type of people. They want you to read their blog, watch their video or follow their link. They have an e-book or training seminar they want to sell. If you have a conversation with this type of person they will mention their promotion. They want to schedule an appointment with you. They're good at mentioning the DEAL, like “Save Now” “Training Starts Next Week” or “Once I Sell Out, I'm taking my Site Down.” Their great at pointing out the millions they have made and they want to share it with you, if you act now. These people have the same skills of the spammer. They will steal ideas and present them as their own. Stay away from this type of person in social media who does nothing but hawk their own stuff. Don't confuse this person with the marketer because there is a difference. The difference between being a marketer and being a shameless self-promoter is people tend not to enjoy speaking with the latter.

5) The Professional Social Media Employee: This person gets paid to spend their day to post data on behalf of their client. There are a few good ones but for the most part, most don't really know what their tweeting on Twitter or posting on Facebook. It is hard to engage with them because if they receive a detailed or technical comment or reply, they pass it on to the boss and wait for a reply from the boss. Carrying a conversation with this type of person is like playing a game of “Words with Friends” with a person who takes a day between the moves. The lag time kills the conversation. Be cautious of affiliating yourself with these people. It’s not that their bad people, but there’s nothing more dangerous than a person with too much time on their hands. Personally, these people are wonderful people who have great social media skills. Dealing with these people is like that of a relative who keeps you out to dinner for hours just because they have nowhere to go after dinner.  Just like our relatives, we love them, but they can also be great time wasters. If you value your time during the business day, tread lightly. If you want to connect with the Professional Social Media Employee, connect with them on their personal time.



  • 6) The Habitual Complainer: 
  • I guess somewhere it became acceptable and even encouraged to use social media as the diary of why your having a bad day. You’ve probably met these type of people, right? They’re the folks who always appear to be having a bad day and who spend all their social media interactions yelling and screaming and kicking their feet. Do yourself a favor and avoid these folks. Now don't get me wrong, I understand people have problems and sympathize for them. I have had my share of problems like blindness, diabetes and injuries. I just don't go on social media and do the “Woe with Me” stuff. The people who do are looking for attention and I’ve found that too much exposure to negative people can ruin your mood and your day. Negativity attracts more negativity. Surround yourself with positive people who are excited about what their doing and the people their talking to. Because excitement is also contagious. And which would you rather catch? I know I want to be surrounded by positve people, don't you?

    7) The Social Media Guru: Hey, don’t get me wrong. I like gurus and a lot of my friends are social media gurus. It’s not that they’re bad people, it’s just that they often will not bring much value to your business. What do I mean? How is connecting with XYZ social media guru in New York going to help your business in (your city)? As a small business owner, you don’t need to be connecting with hundreds of social media gurus on Twitter and Facebook. A couple is all you need. Read their blogs on Google Reader is ok, connecting with them on social media is useless, other than letting your friends know that you're connected to a famous person. I meet those people all of the time at networking events and they will tell me that social media doesn't work for them. After analyzing their social media presence, I notice that they spend their time retweeting social media gurus and commenting on the same social media gurus walls. Connecting with the Gurus will have little impact on your business.


    So now that I shared with you the people to stay away from on Social Media, I'll post the type of people you should focus connecting with on social media tomorrow.

    I hope this post will help you become more successful with using social media. By connecting with the right people, you will find that social media will not be a time waster and will in fact help your business grow.

    If you’re selling your home, and would like to connect with potential buyers....let’s talk.

    Who you connect with says as much about you, as the thoughts and ideas you post.  Pick the right people, get the right results!

    In order to network and preform SEO task more efficiently on Google Plus, I recommend doing the following 7 steps:

    I have jumped on the Google Plus bandwagon. The SEO and networking benefits trumps all other social media sites.


    I have heard many people complain that they aren't seeing the benefits. After looking at many Google Plus Profiles and post, I'm confident that many people on Google Plus are expecting rewards off of incomplete Google Plus Profile.


    In order to network and preform SEO task more efficiently on Google Plus, I recommend doing the following 7 steps:


    Step 1 is add pictures on your profile. You can go to your profile and click edit and add one profile picture and 5 additional pics above your profile.


    Step 2 is add an introduction. Profiles without introductions are like people going to networking events and hanging out in the corner. Add a complete introduction. To give it some SEO value, add keywords describing your business, hobbies and interest. 


    Step 3 is add a Tag Line. By adding a tag line you make it easier for people to determine what circle friends will add you to. For an SEO value, add keywords that describe your business, interest or hobby.


    Step 4 is add your Occupation and Employment information. Some networking partners will search by occupation and employment information. By adding this information, you will make it easier for networking partners to find you.


    Step 5 is add a few Profile and Recommended Links. By adding links you make it easier for networking partners to connect with on other social media sites. In addition, add your website and blog links. 


    Step 6 is add Places you Have Lived. I have had several networking partners connect with me due to where I live.


    Step 7 is make your Profile Search Visible. Go to the bottom of your profile while you're in edit mode and click the box that will enable your profile to be visible.


    To get started with these seven steps go to your profile page and click the edit button on the top.
    When you are in the edit mode you will see the Finish Editing Tab on your profile screen similar to: 




    By implementing these seven steps you will help increase your networking partnerships and SEO benefits on Google Plus. 


    To get started networking on Google Plus, lets connect. Visit my profile at Chris Dowell on Google Plus.

    How can you use Social Media Sites like Facebook, Google Plus, and Twitter to Find Your Next Home in Kansas City?

    How can you use Social Media Sites like Facebook and Twitter to Find Your Next Home in Kansas City?
    Many home buyers may feel that they have gotten a raw deal on a home that they have lived in the past. Maybe you have also. You had the annoying neighbor, the city officials who were a joke, the road crews who seemed to nap and the parks and rec who was disorganized.
    It used to be that you couldn’t find much information on a city, school district or  neighborhood other than from the school district and local Chamber of Commerce. And, of course, their opinions are slightly biased, aren't they. 
    I mean how many school districts will tell you how many kids dropped out, how many kids are truant and what the community really think of their schools.
    In addition, the local Chamber of Commerce will not post information that will be negative for the city and local business.
    You get it, right? They're all in the business to paint a rosy picture.
    Kansas City home buyers can gain A new way of looking for homes by utilizing social networking sites like Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter.
    Searching for homes through social networking is still in its infancy but is gaining slowly. It is still easier to use a home finder tool from a Kansas City real estate agent. The whole idea is to talk to people, from all walks of life in various communities, including the ones you are interested in moving to in the near future. That way you get more than one opinion and you just may find an awesome deal in places you never thought of.
    You can find things out about a neighborhood like the schooling, crime rate for the area and if the area has good shopping locations. I'm not talking about the posted material, but real life data from residents in the community. Most of us lean away from neighborhoods that the news portrays as bad. That is only natural, especially when you have children. But the media is not always right and you may find a good neighborhood tucked away in an area with a bad reputation. A lot of times these homes will be less expensive than you think because of the neighborhood.
    Some communities are very big and a small portion of the community maybe giving the whole community a bad rap.
    I'll give an example. I had a relo buyer wanting Northern Overland Park. They did not want the Shawnee Mission West high school area because of what they heard. After a little investigation, the couple bought a home in the Shawnee Mission West high school area. That was 15 years ago and the family loves their neighborhood. Kids were happy and now are off on their own.
    Another example: I had a home buyer who had to stay in Missouri. They only wanted Blue Springs or Lee's Summit. They found a home in South Raytown. After hearing a few gossip stories, they decided against it. They dug more into it and decided that maybe South Raytown would be great. 12 years later that still love their neighborhood.
    So, use your Facebook, Google Plus, or Twitter accounts to get the word out about where you would like to live and ask for comments. Just be careful of giving out exact information. You never know who may be reading it. Don’t let that scare you off, though. All it takes is a little caution and social networking is the place to find some really good locations.
    Speak with a Kansas City real estate after you have done your research through the social networking sites. Let them know what you have found out. Most of them would be willing to work with you about a specific location.

    You can now convert a Facebook personal profile into a Facebook business page.

    You can now convert a Facebook personal profile into a Facebook business page.
    Facebook never formally announced this new capability but Facebook’s help center explains how to convert a profile to a page.
    In fact, seven different help entries describe this process, making it look like this has been an option all along when in fact it’s news to us — as it was for me.
    Converting a profile into a page retains all of one’s friends as fans, but all other information gets lost in the process if a user doesn’t first copy and save all of their personal information onto their computer.
    And once you convert your profile into a page, there’s no way to reverse the process.
    Facebook’s help center describes how to download the contents of one’s profile in ample detail.
    The ability to convert a profile to a page seems like a logical next step in functionality for the site, given how Facebook redesigned the layouts of profiles and pages to look alike.
    Converting a Facebook profile page into a business page would suit someone who is simply more interested in maintaining a business presence on the site than a personal one. Small companies and sole proprietors might have a stronger inclination to do this, but so would page administrators whose usage of Facebook has become so professionally focused that they no longer use it for their own social lives.
    Would you ever convert your personal profile to a business page, and for what reasons?
